The Twenty Two, London’s most anticipated new luxury lifestyle destination, recently opened its doors. The 42,500-square-foot manor, located on Grosvenor Square, offers 31 bedrooms and suites, a mews house and an all-day restaurant and private members club.
Navid Mirtorabi was drawn to the Parisian feel of the building’s exterior and has been the driving force for the creative vision since the beginning. Mitorabi partnered with Natalia Miyar Atelier to bring his vision to life. The pair looked into 18th-century classical French design to inspire the property’s interior, reimagining the building and its space through textures and pieces to give it a modern-day feel.
“My ambition for The Twenty Two was to create a space where the creative and the curious, in London and globally, can come together and feel welcome; a living room of sorts where guests feel inspired and at home in their surroundings,” said Navid Mirtorabi, proprietor, The Twenty Two.
The Restaurant is open daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., offering an all-day menu of British classics with a Mediterranean twist. The dishes, created by Executive Chef Alan Christie, are his interpretations of modern-day classics. The lunch and dinner menu also offers a variety of seasonal dishes.
‘I wanted to create a restaurant where the menus flow harmoniously from breakfast to lunch to dinner, made up of dishes that evoke a subtle, comforting familiarity, some light and fresh, some indulgent, but all executed to the highest standards and with the best quality, seasonal ingredients,” said Alan Christie, executive chef, The Twenty Two.
The private club is split across the ground and lower ground floor, featuring four exclusive spaces reserved for patrons and hotel guests only. The Living Room and outdoor terrace overlook Grosvenor Square, The Dining Room, The Music Room and The Vault Bar.
What happens when three of the six French nationals residing in San Antonio get together? If they happen to be from a long line of proud French gourmands from three different regions of the country, they take what they know and make it something proudly Texan, while still adhering to their separate and collective culinary roots. That’s exactly what happened as a result of those three — Executive Chef Laurent Réa of Strasbourg, Philippe Placé of Chartres, and Jérôme Sérot of Lyon — meeting 20 years ago.

As a mom, you’re not allowed to pick favorites. With a growing baby in my belly and a toddler guiding my daily routines, my own favorites often take a back seat as I make the daily choice to swap healthy foods for junk food cravings and toddler tunes for windows-down, volume-up jams. But when I heard my favorite spa was relaunching its facial program, I felt zero guilt — of the mom variety or otherwise — about taking a morning off and booking myself a nice, long, rejuvenating facial at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia at Comcast Center.
