The Balcon

The Balcon

| Mayfair, Belgravia

With a bar designed by Russell Sage, who was behind the Zetter Townhouse, and a head chef who's worked under Ducasse and Alain Roux, this is a brasserie serving "French/Anglo food". Expect a charcuterie bar and a Champagne balcony, along with a "Champagne Angel" on hand to pass on fizz tips. The design of the St James bar also aims to mimic Coco Chanel's 1920's Paris apartment.

"If you think 'Welsh charcuterie' sounds like it belongs with Dutch wine or Greek sushi as 'things to avoid', you'd best try a platter of the Trealy Farm charcuterie, from Monmouthshire - the air-dried hams, game salami and lomo (pork loin) match or better anything coming out of Italy or Spain."

"An inviting interior, imaginative but comforting food and delightful staff... There's more than a hint of The Wolseley about the place, and that is a compliment indeed." READ REVIEW
