Quo vadis is a question in latin, and literally means ‘where are you going?’
The answer to which is Quo Vadis.
Because not only has the place had a complete, top-down refurb (which, given that they’re 90 years old, is no bad thing), but the first floor now features QV’s first dedicated restaurant for members – and members only – who also have exclusive access to the all-new second floor library bar. Fancy.
Joe public however, can still stroll merrily into the ground floor restaurant. There, they’ll see that the menu’s also had a little refurb too, and now features the likes of wild rabbit and herb kickshaws, crab soup with rouille and marzipan-stuffed prunes dipped in organic Congolese chocolate. Which, of course, will all be sitting alongside old favourites like the Grouse & Co; a hearty offering of grouse with game chips and sherry croutons.
And to finish it off? There are desserts such as pink grapefruit & Campari sorbet; steamed ginger & marmalade puddings; and hazelnut cake with custard, ice cream, and cream.
To wash it all down, they’ll shake you any number of classic cocktails, including their famed Martini, an Old Fashioned, a Brandy Alexander, or a simple glass of Poire Williams – a brandy-like spirit with an entire pear floating in the bottle.
Which is the answer to a great many questions.
