Dining At: Kettners

Kettners edit 5

Time for another restaurant review, mes amies! I know the past few have been of the ultra expensive variety. The kind of destinations where you only go if you’ve got cash to splash and want to spend a whole evening indulging on multiple courses, waddling out some hours later with only one thing lighter, your wallet. Well you may be pleased to learn that this one isn’t like that. I mean it could be. One could very happily spend a long evening at Kettners and plenty of hard earned dollar on their legendary champagne selection. Having been first opened in 1867, by Napoleon III’s chef no less, the place is nothing if not iconic and now plays host to jazz nights, kabaret and all sorts of deliciously debauched antics. On the flipside, it’s also an excellent spot to pop into for an excellent yet inexpensive dish served promptly by charming staff before heading on to do your debauchery elsewhere… Or, y’know, going home to bed, but where’s the fun in that?

Christmas may be hurtling towards us at a rate of knots but by the time it arrives I guarantee you’ll all never want to hear me say the words “champagne” or “soirée” ever again! The past few weeks have been a veritable whirlwind of festive cocktails, exhibition openings, extravagant dinners, award ceremonies and boutique launches. The subject of this post falls under the latter category. It’s a truth universally acknowledged that if you open a shop (or a bar/restaurant/gallery/envelope) then you must celebrate doing so by inviting a coterie of the city’s most fabulous along to drink, mingle and Instagram. So obviously when Italian luxury brand, Loriblu, decided to set up shop on New Bond Street that is precisely what they did…
