The buzzing London restaurant scene continues to delight its food-obsessed denizens (and visitors!) with new openings all the time. In recent news out of Paris, the owners of Taillevent—the restaurant that’s been serving haute cuisine in the 8th arrondissement since 1947—have decided to cross the Channel next year.
As reported by Yahoo News, the London outpost will be a copy of the brasserie concept called Les 110 de Taillevent, which takes its name from the 110 wines by the glass that are available. (You can also choose from 330 French and international wines by the bottle.)
The focus is excellent food and wine pairings. As explained on the official website: “Each dish is accompanied by a suggested selection of 4 wines in 4 different price ranges. For each of the 30 dishes offered on this sommelier-selected menu (9 starters, 4 fish dishes, 8 meat dishes, cheese and 6 desserts), there is a choice of 4 wines in 4 price brackets. All of these wines are served in 14 cl or 7 cl glasses so that everyone can explore new combinations throughout the meal.”
Bref, a real paradise for wine lovers. No word yet on the location in London, but we hear that in-demand designer Pierre-Yves Rochon will be decorating the interiors of the restaurant, which will open in May or June 2015. For more information, visit www.taillevent.com
