The markets can be unpredictable.
Here’s a dependable investment: Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Spice Market, opening today in the new W Hotel in Soho. Early analysis shows that the Southeast Asian-inspired restaurant will be as hot a commodity as its New York counterpart.
The diversified menu includes dishes from Malaysia, Thailand, Japan and Vietnam (ginger fried rice; black pepper shrimp with sun-dried pineapple; char-grilled chicken with lemon grass dressing; spiced milk chocolate for dessert).
Six hundred ceiling lamp woks give the two-story space — complete with street-level bar and lounge, sushi bar and mezzanine — a moody vibe. Insider tip: book a table overlooking the bar to see the action below.
When you’re done, tour the hotel and have a drink at Ignite Group’s new Wyld club. Or just cash in and crash out.
Spice Market, 10 Wardour Street, W1D 6QF (020 7758 1088 or spicemarketlondon.co.uk).
