In under a year after opening in October 2018, Urban Brasserie, Crowne Plaza London Heathrow T4’s contemporary feature restaurant, has earned its 2nd AA Rosette.
The restaurant is headed up by Executive Head Chef, Sam Tekkle, serving an innovative blended menu of British and Asian cuisine.
AA Inspectors commented: “Heathrow Airport isn’t the most obvious spot to look for accomplished modern British cooking, but that’s just what this smart hotel brasserie delivers, and it’s easy to reach from Terminal 4. An eclectic menu including grills and Asian street food is served in an airy space with grey leather seats, pale wood tables and a soothing ambience.”
Sam Tekkle, Executive Head Chef, said: “I am extremely proud and obviously delighted that Urban Brasserie has been awarded its 2nd rosette, less than a year after opening. It was always the goal to achieve prestigious awards such as this and position ourselves within the top restaurants, not just in the Heathrow area, but in the wider London areas too. I am looking forward to sharing a new menu with our guests soon and continuing to uphold the high standards that this feature restaurant has.”
Andrew Brown, General Manager of Crowne Plaza London Heathrow T4, said: “I could not be happier with Sam and the team’s achievement. This award is a perfect representation of not only the restaurant culinary expertise, but also the amazing effort of our team and the standards that are shared across all areas of our restaurants offering. I greatly look forward to seeing what the future holds for Urban Brasserie and to continue to achieve these milestones of excellence.”
The hotel shares the property with Holiday Inn Express London Heathrow T4, also owned and operated by Arora Hotels. Operating under an IHG franchise agreement, the dual-branded hotel opening was the UKs largest in 2018.
