The ‘Brasserie Luxe’ style of restaurant was the first London venture of 3 Michelin starred chefs, Jacques and Laurent Poucel, and provided 120 covers on two floors of a Grade II star listed building originally built as a banking hall in the Edwardian Baroque style.

 

The new interiors, inspired by the history and imagery of the French colonial and spice trading era, feature timber panelling, fringed leather curtains, neon yellow glass balustrades and dramatic metal-leaf ceilings – all complementing an offering of light and colourful French dishes to create a sophisticated yet highly contemporary interior that complements the grandeur of the building’s original features.
