West 36: Your new home from home

Welcome to West 36 a new grill house and cocktail lounge opening on Golborne Road this week and it wants to be your new home from home. Which we’re welcoming because let’s be honest, it’s going to be better than your office which feels like home the amount of time you spend there. We have a sneaky suspicion it’s going to be a good’un for several reasons: firstly it’s owned by Robert Newmark who also owns Notting Hill favourite Beach Blanket Babylon, secondly Jon Pollards formerly of Soho House is heading up the kitchen and lastly they’re going to be […]

Le Chateaubriand launches Le Chabanais

Denizens of Mayfair’s Mount Street will soon have a brand new Gallic haunt; March will see the launch of Le Chabanais, from the team behind France’s celebrated restaurant, Le Chateaubriand ranked No.27 in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Taking its name from an infamous Belle Époque absinthe den  (that’s a brothel if you were in any doubt), the new venue has been conceived together with film producer Varun Talreja, Le Chateaubriand’s self- taught Basque chef owner Inaki Aizpitarte (responsible for spearheading France’s recent ‘bistronomy’ movement – that’s affordable haute cuisine to you and me) and his partners Franck Audoux and Laurent […]

Joël Robuchon Brings L’Atelier to NYC

‘Chef of the Century’ Joël Robuchon, the Frenchman with no less than 25 Michelin stars to his err…apron strings, is taking his celebrated restaurant ‘L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon’ to New York City. Not satisfied with his bevy of establishments in Paris, London, Las Vegas, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore and Monaco (to name but a few), Robuchon is continuing his world domination of the restaurant scene with a shiny new joint in New York, opening in March.

Medcalf of Exmouth Market has just got a new neighbour in the shape of Medcalf Traiteur – bang next door at number 38, in what was previously the restaurant’s gallery space. The new project from Simon Lee and Tim Wilson features a simpler menu than the one available at the mothership, one designed to celebrate the craftsmanship of culinary produce from across Europe – along with the opportunity to buy products to try at home. Gastro history buffs might be interested to learn that the ‘traiteur’ was a 17th century casual food and wine establishment in France that became the […]
