The Langham Jakarta introduces Tom’s by Tom Aikens

European restaurant to debut in September 2021

The Langham Jakarta is on track to debut Tom’s restaurant by UK chef, Tom Aikens, in September 2021.

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.

The Marrone open kitchen will showcase the lively process, the Himalayan salt-dry meat lockers will age the best quality beef; the wood-fired grill will layer complexity into any simple flavour; the épicerie-like shelves will offer a wide variety of charcuterie and cheeses along with wide selections of wine.

“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.

Tom will also introduce European nostalgia to the Jakarta dining scene with highly styled à la carte Gueridon service of meat carvings, burrata and various desserts. Champagnes and cocktails will also be presented and prepared for guests at the table.

The burrata trolley will be stocked with the finest from Pugliese, complete with fresh garnishes and accompaniments. Seasonal seafood towers made up of the freshest seafood sourced from sustainable fisheries are changed daily or weekly dependent on the availability of the freshest produce, which will also be a focal dish on the dining table.

Tom’s also features a mezzanine lounge that overlooks the restaurant with circular steel stairs connected to the woode-clad bar which specialises in the largest and most varied whiskey selections in Jakarta.

The Langham, Jakarta is earmarked to welcome guests from 9 September 2021.
