Chef Gilles Arzur from the Beverly Hills property, and Chef Alessandro Cartumini from the Santa Barbara property put their culinary wizardry to work generating dishes and sips with a British flair to present during the month of April. They include main dishes of Fish & Chips, Sheppard’s Pie or Bangers & Mash, along with a selection of lovely cocktails with names like BBC, James Bond, Big Ben, the Middletini and Blushing Kate.
