Openings: The Brass Rail
Selfridges in London has revamped its Brass Rail salt beef bar ahead of its 50th birthday celebration. The restaurant, which launched in 1966, has also been given an expanded menu featuring hot and cold breakfast dishes, including the crisp salt beef potato hash. New dishes such as the bialy roll (a pulled hot salt beef sandwich with melted Swiss cheese, gherkin, gem lettuce and Brass Rail relish) have been added to the all-day menu.
Opened September 2015
