In the restaurant mecca of New York, Balthazar has been wildly popular since its debut in the spring of 1997. The legendary brasserie in Soho serves classic French dishes to the city’s movers and shakers. So imagine the hype in London—another famous foodie town—about the opening of Balthazar London in Covent Garden this month.
In a recent article in Esquire Magazine, Keith McNally is described as one of the “most influential restaurateurs in the world." At long last, London-born McNally is opening an outpost in his home town, and it’s destined to be just as popular. The restaurant will be housed in the old Theatre Museum, in a building called “The Flower Cellars.” Expect the menu classics available for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, plus weekend brunch.
