The Taillevent Paris group, operator of the Gardinier family's two-Michelin-starred restaurant Le Taillevent in Paris, is to open a new brasserie in London.
Each of the wines has been chosen as part of a list curated over three years by Pierre Bérot, cellar director of Taillevent Paris. Guests will be offered the choice of four wines in 70ml or 125ml measures, each matched with their choice of four starters, fish, meat, desserts or cheese dishes.
The a la carte menu, from Alain Solivérès, executive chef director of Taillevent Paris, will also seek to champion good quality, seasonal produce, and has been designed to complement the wine choices. The restaurant will even match drinks with breakfast dishes - including hot drinks â' and there will also be an evening "Wine Time" menu, offering small plates and complementary wines.
The general manager will be Giuseppe de Wilde, who brings extensive previous experience from a range of luxury restaurants and hotels.
The interior, designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, will aim to be warm and inviting, inspired in colour by viticulture, including the green vines, earthy tones of the ground, and the colours of oak-barrelled wine casks.
The Taillevent Paris group owns three operations in Paris - Le Taillevent restaurant, Les 110 de Taillevent, and Les Caves de Taillevent â' with the latter two located on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
The restaurant was first opened in 1946 by André Vrinat, and won its first Michelin star in 1948 and the second in 1954. It was awarded a third star in 1973, but lost it in 2007.
