Square Meal Review of Le Caprice ?

Once a chattering trend-setter, this clubby, cosmopolitan, civilised blue-chip continues to carve out a special niche within London’s social scene. With its quiet, understated glamour, it still seduces a cast of well-dressed media, arts and money moguls with its monochrome interiors, riffing piano player (in the evening) and David Bailey photographs. Salmon fishcakes with sorrel sauce and other long-serving classics queue up on the menu, which takes diners on a familiar trip from caramelised onion tart with sautéed ceps or lamb’s sweetbreads with a crispy fried egg to rhubarb Bakewell pudding or passion fruit meringue via the legendary Caprice burger, Thai-baked sea bass or roast rack of lamb with smoked aubergine and tapenade sauce. ‘Highly professional’ service reliably hits the mark, while weekend brunch, live Sunday jazz and an alfresco terrace add further magic to a winning package.

    Lux Life | A Lifestyle Blog :: Le Caprice Jazz Brunch.

    Le Caprice is one of my favourite restaurants in London, I went there for my 21st birthday a couple of years ago, and fell in love. A couple of months ago I was very fortunate to be invited to have lunch with the manager, Jesus Adorno, who has worked at Le Caprice since it re-opened in 1981. He started working there as a waiter, and gradually worked his way up to Manager. His stories of Le Caprice are fascinating, and his passion for hospitality inspiring. While listening to the smooth sounds of Dom Pipkin tinkering on the ivories, I thought how absolutely lovely it is at Le Caprice, and why it is one of my favourite restaurants. We discussed Le Caprice's history, the restaurant industry, and how they've recently started their Jazz Brunch. Le Caprice has long been popular with movie stars, musicians, and even Princess Diana, and has been an institution since it originally opened in 1947...
