Bellanger, Islington

Bellanger is the new neighbourhood restaurant for the lucky folk of Islington from Corbin & King (the duo behind the Wolseley, Delaunay and Brasserie Zédel among others). It’s based in a former Browns, but what a transformation… It’s all dark wood panelled walls, white tablecloths and rattan chairs; glamorous yet not at all imposing. The bar area was reminiscent of a train carriage, the rest … Continue reading Bellanger, Islington

The Colony Grill Room, The Beaumont

I must say, I’m an avid Corbin and King fan (they’re the chaps who own Zédel, The Delaunay and The Wolseley amongst others). Their latest restaurant sits inside their first ever hotel, The Beaumont, just off Oxford Street, and it’s another corker. The hotel itself is glamorous yet not at all showy; the large Antony Gormley installation, an architectural extension to the hotel (which is … Continue reading The Colony Grill Room, The Beaumont

The Colony Grill, Beaumont Hotel

The Colony Grill is the latest offering from restaurant giants Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, who also own The Wolseley, Delaunay, Colbert, Brasserie Zédel, Fischer’s and now this, inside the recently opened Beamont Hotel in Mayfair. It’s a grand building in an understated kind of way – the giant Antony Gormley art installation on the outside (which is actually a suite you can stay in) … Continue reading The Colony Grill, Beaumont Hotel

Fischer’s, Marylebone

Fischer’s is the latest offering from restaurateurs Corbin and King – the pair behind the Wolseley, Delaunay, Brasserie Zedel and Colbert. It’s based on Marylebone High Street on the former site of Cotidie; a dire Italian restaurant where I had one of the worst meals of my life. What a transformation; it’s a really beautiful restaurant – like a glamorous Austrian cafe in a railway … Continue reading Fischer’s, Marylebone

Brasserie Zedel

I first visited Corbin and King’s Brasserie Zedel during their soft launch and fell in love with the place. It has since become my favourite restaurant in London; its Piccadilly location, the lavish surroundings and affordable prices make it the perfect place for a bite to eat. My visit on this occasion was with my lady friend for dinner and a spot of cabaret in … Continue reading Brasserie Zedel

The Delaunay

Opened by Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, it’s hard to think the Delaunay is only approaching its second birthday – it feels like it has been at the Aldwych forever. Seeing as it’s my parents favourite restaurant I was more than happy to join them for a bite to eat after seeing Warhorse at the New London Theatre (you really should go and see it). … Continue reading The Delaunay

The Wolseley

The Wolseley is owned by Chris Corbin and Jeremy King and was famed for being the late Michael Winner’s favourite restaurant in London. Corbin and King also own The Delaunay, Brasserie Zedel and Cafe Colbert – a selection of restaurants that I simply adore and the same can now be said for The Wolseley after my visit for dinner with my parents. The dining room … Continue reading The Wolseley

Colbert

Colbert is the new ‘Parisian all-day cafe’ from master restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King (who own The Wolseley, The Delaunay and Brasserie Zedel). Situated on the corner of Sloane Square in Chelsea and slap bang next to the Royal Court Theatre, it’s location is rather a splendid one. We managed to get a table during the opening week meaning we received 25% off the … Continue reading Colbert

The Delaunay

The Delaunay, situated on the giant roundabout that is the Aldwych, is Chris Corbin and Jeremy King’s sister restaurant to The Wolseley, Cafe Colbert and Brasserie Zedel (which I have become obsessed with). The restaurant looks like it’s been around for years and has all the class and style that you may expect from two accomplished restauranteurs. I thought this would be the perfect choice … Continue reading The Delaunay

Brasserie Zedel

Brasserie Zedel is a “grand Parisian brasserie transported to the heart of London” by Chris Corbin and Jeremy King (owners of The Wolseley, The Delaunay and Cafe Colbert). Being big fans of both, my gentleman companion and I were excited to be attending the first ever dinner service during their soft launch. Situated just off Piccadilly Circus and tucked behind Soho it has a great location. We … Continue reading Brasserie Zedel
