Zummo z40 just installed in the five star hotel’s new restaurant…

Five star hotels shouldn’t have to compromise on the quality of their fruit juice. Mayfair’s Athenaeum agrees with us; and we’ve just installed a Zummo Z40 in the five star hotel’s new restaurant.

With large hotels, it’s often a trade-off between quantity and quality when it comes to orange juice – a low-yielding juicer just can’t keep up with the demand, especially at peak breakfast time. The result is that many busy establishments choose to buy bottles instead of squeezing their own pure juice. However, the mighty Zummo Z40 has changed all that, as the newly-refurbished Athenaeum is discovering…

The Athenaeum is a beautiful family-run hotel opposite Green Park. Offering both rooms and apartments, it has also just launched its exciting new restaurant, run by Michelin-starred chef-restaurateurs the Galvin brothers.

The Galvin brothers are the first British siblings to gain a Michelin star each. Chris Galvin started out as Antony Worrall Thompson’s pot washer. His career includes London hotels The Ritz and The Lanesborough, and ten years with Conran. He gained his first Michelin star at the Orrery in 2000. Joined by brother Jeff, whose CV includes the role of Executive Chef at L’Escargot, the Galvins opened Galvin Bistrot de Luxe in Baker Street in 2005. Since then, they have launched numerous restaurants across London, as well as The Pompadour by Galvin and Galvin Brasserie de Luxe in Edinburgh’s iconic Caledonian.

Galvin at The Athenaeum is the latest restaurant from the Michelin-starred brothers. The menu sees them moving away from their usual French-inspired cuisine to a more British focus, showcasing fantastic home-grown produce. As you can imagine from a five star Mayfair hotel, the Athenaeum needed to offer their guests the most fabulous breakfast.

The new restaurant wanted to serve the freshest juice for breakfast, so contacted us to install a Zummo Z40 in their kitchen. The Athenaeum has a varied and mouth-watering breakfast menu; and juices and smoothies are an essential component of their healthy, high quality breakfast offer.

The Zummo Z40 is the ideal machine for a busy hotel restaurant, able to squeeze 3 litres of 100% pure orange juice in just 60 seconds. Large hotels have previously steered clear of juicers, as the standard commercial juicer simply can’t keep up with the demand. However, thanks to the Zummo Z40 it’s now possible to keep the juice flowing; and high-end breakfast menus needn’t be let down by their fruit juice any more.

The term “athenaeum” means library or reading room, and comes from Athena, Greek Goddess of Wisdom. By choosing the hard-working Zummo Z40, we feel that the kitchen at The Athenaeum has made an incredibly wise decision!
