In London, restaurateur-hoteliers Mark Sainsbury and Michael Benyan are shortly to open The Zetter Townhouse (www.thezetter.com; from £222) in an early-Georgian residence just across St John’s Square from its groovy parent, The Zetter. It promises eclectic good taste, by way of interior designer Russell Sage; and with its basement game rooms and private dining (courtesy of a talent on loan from The Zetter’s Bistro Bruno Loubet), it’s ideal for takeover by families and groups.
And fans of Knightbridge’s charming Pantechnicon Rooms will be pleased to hear that its owners have a new venture in Marylebone. The Grazing Goat (pictured, www.thegrazinggoat.co.uk; from £175) has eight sweet, simple accommodations with French oak floors, wainscoted walls, antique beds and lovely little flagstoned en-suites – a model of good-value chic, with a quite delicious Sunday roast.
