French bakery Poilâne is to launch a restaurant in London next month, with the opening of Cuisine de Bar by Poilâne in Chelsea.
The all-day restaurant, located off Sloane Square, will be the first dining venue from the bakery in London, following the original Parisian establishment which opened 15 years ago in St Germain des Prés.
The 80-cover restaurant will serve a breakfast menu of classic French dishes, including croissants, eggs and freshly prepared tartines, as well as lunch and dinner options such as savoury tartines, available with a salad, a glass of wine and tea or coffee for under £15.
Cuisine de Bar by Poilâne will also serve afternoon tea with pastries and butter biscuits and customers will also be able to purchase items to take away.
Interiors will feature a large skylight, an eating bar, where chefs will make fresh tartines to order, communal tables and a lounge area in front of the fireplace. Complimentary Wi-Fi will be available throughout the day.
