Harris and Garnier on a Racine certainty

Racine, a new regional French-style restaurant created by Henry Harris and Eric Garnier, opened in London's Brompton Road yesterday.

Harris left his role as executive chef in London restaurant Hush in late March to set up Racine with former Fish! operations director Garnier.

Harris, whose past employers include Harvey Nichols' Fifth Floor restaurant and Bibendum, will look after the kitchens while front of house will be managed by Garnier.

Racine is something of a return to roots for Garnier, who began his career running the Brasserie St Quentin in Brompton Road with his brother Didier, before helping to open Quaglino's for Conran Restaurants in 1992 and Bank for BGR in 1996.

The new restaurant splits into a main room that will seat as many as 60 and a private dining area at the rear that will hold up to 15. Main courses cost £10-£13, while the set lunch costs £12.50 for two courses and £15 for three.
