Scheduled to open in September 2021, Tom’s by renowned UK chef, Tom Aikens at The Langham Jakarta promises to be the new culinary destination in the city.
Located on the 62nd floor of the hotel, the European restaurant features Italian mosaic flooring by Sicis, Knoll chairs, leather upholstered benches, old world chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows, showcasing spectacular views of Jakarta’s skyline from the Sudirman Central Business District.
Tom’s is a project close to the hearts of both The Langham, Jakarta and Tom Aikens. Growing up with his father who is a French wine merchant, Aikens spent significant amounts of time experiencing French cuisine and culture. He further refined his craft under the tutelage of Pierre Koffmann and Joel Robuchon, and was the youngest chef who achieved Two Michelin stars at 26 years old.
The style of cuisine at Tom’s is British and French influenced and prepared simply, using the best seasonal quality produce. “At Tom’s, the produce is the hero. We are celebrating flavours and harmonising taste and texture, working with the world’s best meat, imported or dry aged to perfection in-house, along with poultry and seasonal seafood prepared and cooked “on the bone” which is a superior method of cooking,” said Aikens.
