Square Meal Review of La Brasserie ?

Opened in 1972 and reputedly ‘London’s first all-day brasserie’, this vintage homage to the genre is note-perfect, from the prints, tiled floors and spindly-legged tables to the red banquettes and logoed mirrors. A curved, marble-topped bar holds centre stage and encourages gregarious Chelsea socialising, with hordes of celebs, movers and shakers crammed in at peak times for true Gallic wines, cocktails and digestifs. The food is also the ‘real deal’ – a roll call of brasserie icons, from ‘le brunch’ (croquet monsieur, eggs Benedict) to ‘wonderful’ soupe à l’oignon, a standout version of steak tartare, rabbit stew and coq au vin, not forgetting lemon tart and profiteroles. Cheery staff in ‘penguin’ garb whizz around with silver trays, breakfast gives a ‘full English’ nod to Blighty, and there’s afternoon tea too. ‘I hope it never changes!’ pleads one fan.

  1. was a sunny day and the glamourous Chelsea crowd sat outside drinking wine and sipping coffee. The scene reminded me of the Parisian pavement cafes that Mr Silver and I loved on our romantic trip to the French Capital. Is there anything quite so fabulous as the Parisian cafe culture? It was a Saturday with no rush to get anywhere, a day to meet with friends, people watch and sip cocktails in a gorgeous setting. And in an Parisian brasserie I expect red checkered tablecloths and bistro chairs...

    Empty Pocket Guide :: La Brasserie

    I visited an all day French brasserie on the Brompton Road. From the outside you would think it wouldn’t be somewhere you’d expect Empty Pocket Guide to feature but I’m am so pleased we did. As you walk through the door you notice the incredible atmosphere, buzzing and friendly and this was on a Monday night. We were sat at the bar and sampled some happy hour cocktails. If you are in the area on holiday, visiting the museums or shopping in South Kensington or Knightsbridge you should come to La Brasserie to experience the food and drink. I would even make a trip to South Kensington just to visit this place. It is unique, independent and vibrant...
