The team behind Le Chateaubriand come to London to bring Le Chabanais to Mayfair

Updated 26 May - now you can read our full Test Drive of Le Chabanais

The opening of Le Chabanais is set to be one of the highlights of the London restaurant year and now more details are being revealed about the restaurant coming to Mayfair.

To recap, in case you didn't know, the reason we're excited about it is because it's from the team behind Le Chateaubriand will open a new restaurant on Mount Street in Mayfair. Currently at No 27 in the World's 50 Best Restaurants list, Le Chateaubriand's self-taught Basque chef owner Inaki Aizpitarte has been creating waves in the Parisian dining scene since it opened in 2006.

The London project has been headed up by film producer Varun Talreja who has teamed up with Aizpitarte and his partners Franck Audoux and Laurent Cabut. Le Chateaubriand’s head chef, Paul Boudier will head up the kitchen while Kevin Lansdown, former General Manager of Scott's in Mayfair has moved down Mount Street to run front of house here.

It sounds as if the restaurant's design will be striking as they've employed the services of Clément Blanchet, who designed The Serpentine Summer Pavilion in 2006 together with Rem Koolhas. There'll be a ground floor dining room with room for 90 and a private dining room seating up to ten.

As for the food, well Paul and his team will serve up a regularly changing menu inspired by the food served at Le Chateaubriand. So expect fresh European ingredients alongside a concise wine list and a brief menu of French classic cocktails which you can enjoy in the bar downstairs.

Le Chabanais will open 25 May 2015 at 8 Mount Street, London W1K 3NF. Reservation lines are now open on 020 7491 7078.
