Café Wolseley, Bicester Village

Regular readers of this blog (hey Dad!) will know I’m a big fan of Corbin and King restaurants. From Brasserie Zédel to Colony Grill there’s something about the slick service and always-solid cooking which keeps me going back. The Wolseley is the jewel in the crown for owners Jeremy King and Chris Corbin, described on the website as an “all-day café-restaurant in the grand European … Continue reading Café Wolseley, Bicester Village

The Colony Grill Room, Mayfair

This Corbin & King restaurant inside their first hotel, The Beaumont, has a menu filled with things you actually want to eat, which can be a rarity these days, and the service is always so warm and welcoming. It’s a fine example of a bloody good restaurant. Not surprising really considering the chaps own The Wolseley, Delaunay, Brasserie Zédel, Bellanger etc. We start with a … Continue reading The Colony Grill Room, Mayfair

Soutine, St John’s Wood

Take a look at Fischer’s or Colbert and you’ll see Corbin and King know how to make a bloody good neighbourhood restaurant. The latest addition to this subtle empire is Soutine on St John’s Wood High Street, North London. Arguably their nicest looking yet, Giles Coren best sums it up in his Times review: “It has been magnificently overhauled to look just like the sexiest … Continue reading Soutine, St John’s Wood

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

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 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
