London, 5 December 2016: Tom Kerridge, chef-owner of the two star Michelin pub, The Hand and Flowers in Marlow and Jumeirah Carlton Tower, the renowned Knightsbridge luxury hotel, have announced that they will be working together in 2017.
Located off Sloane Street, The Rib Room Bar and Restaurant will close early in 2017 for a complete renovation and will re-open as a stand-alone restaurant under the creative leadership of Kerridge and his team.
