SOHO HOUSE HAS ACQUIRED THE SITE AND WILL REOPEN KETTNER'S TOWNHOUSE IN JANUARY 2018
“I love all the history and the fantastic atmosphere” chimed one fan who was bowled over by velvet banquettes, crystal chandeliers and mosaic floors of this glamorously refurbished Soho “treasure”. The mood is convincingly special and the brasserie generally delivers satisfying food backed by welcoming, helpful service. Pre-theatre deals are always a popular shout, while the carte promises easy comfort in the shape of lobster bisque with lobster ravioli or baked goats’ cheese with beetroot marmalade followed by Toulouse sausages and mash, harissa-glazed saddle of lamb with crispy polenta or fishcakes with pea purée and brown shrimp butter – not forgetting high-calorie treats from the vast pudding menu. The whole package also embraces a dedicated Champagne Bar, breakfast, afternoon tea, Sunday lunch with a live pianist and “some of the best private dining rooms in London”.
