Tottenham Hotspur finalizes On Four fine-dining line-up

Tottenham Hotspur FC soccer club and its official catering partner, Levy Restaurants UK, have introduced chefs Bryn Williams and Dipna Anand to its restaurant team as preparations continue for the English Premier League (EPL) club’s new stadium.

Scheduled to open in 2018, On Four, located on level four of the stadium, will feature a number of esteemed chefs, for guests to enjoy a variety of signature dishes on matchdays throughout the season. The final additions to the line-up mean the new stadium will host six chefs – Michel Roux Jr, Albert Roux, Emily Roux, Chris Galvin, Bryn Williams and Dipna Anand.

“It’s incredibly exciting to bring my signature dishes and Britain’s finest produce to the Club’s New Stadium,” said Williams.

Bryn Williams joins On Four having been part of prestigious kitchen teams that have included working under Marco Pierre White at The Criterion, Michel Roux Jr at Le Gavroche, and residing as senior-sous chef at The Orrery. He is currently chef patron of Odette’s in London.

“Bryn and Dipna complete what is an outstanding line-up of acclaimed chefs that will further enhance the premium offering at our new stadium,” said Andy O’Sullivan, director of hospitality, Tottenham Hotspur.

“Not only do they bring great culinary expertise and experience, they also offer unrivalled variety for guests at On Four to enjoy. These partnerships with some of the world’s finest chefs demonstrate the commitment the club is showing in delivering what will be London’s best sports and entertainment venue in every aspect.”

Alongside this announcement, new CGI images of the new stadium’s premium areas have been released, showcasing the premium offering guests will experience when the stadium opens.

The On Four development will contain flagship restaurant and lounge The H Club (above). Situated on the halfway, members will be able to select from five dining experiences throughout the season, including the opportunity to dine at the Chef’s Table with food prepared on view; the Players’ Table experience where guests can dine alongside legendary former Tottenham Hotspur players; and an informal bar.

In addition to the dining options available, H Club guests will enjoy experiences such as the exclusive presentation of the Man of the Match award after each game and the chance to meet the nominated player.

Set to open next year, Tottenham Hotspurs’ new stadium will feature a retractable grass field for home fixtures and an artificial surface underneath that will be multi-use and capable of hosting NFL matches, concerts and other high-profile events.
