Prepare yourself bookworms, we’ve got news you’ll definitely want to hear. Lowndes Bar and Kitchen has announced their new ‘Book and Brunch Sundays’ to celebrate March’s World Book Day – aka our favourite mufti day when we were at school. The weekly reader’s digest will offer a complimentary book expertly chosen by local independent bookstore Belgravia Books with every Lowndes set brunch on Sundays.
Each month will bring a different book from various authors to captivate hungry minds. The sessions kick off with Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes’ latest novel, Belgravia, a gripping tale of mystery and intrigue behind the closed doors of London’s grandest postcode. Bookish brunchers can also look forward to getting lost in the pages of The Gustav Sonata by award-winning author Rose Tremain, and the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thien; plus many more page turners to bury your nose in over subsequent months.
On the equally thrilling brunch menu; you’ll find classics like smashed avocado and poached eggs on sourdough, and granola with yoghurt and berries, as well as ‘au-courant’ items like caramelised vegetables and chorizo frittata, and brioche French toast with sautéed bananas, caramel sauce and Cornish clotted cream. With a book in one hand and a fork in the other, this brunch is sure to be a feast for both your stomach and imagination.
‘Book and Brunch Sundays’ may take your mornings to fantasy worlds and make-believe settings, but we promise these delicious storybook sessions are no fiction.
Book and Brunch Sundays at Lowndes Bar and Kitchen take place every Sunday from 26th February.
