Who says you have to break up your festive shopping with lunch eaten on the go? Since opening in Selfridges late last month, Brasserie of Light is here to save us from sandwiches.
The latest in the Caprice Holdings folio, it offers all-day dining in a chic, Art Deco styled setting. The dramatic space, created in consultation with renowned architect Martin Brudnizki, is bold, colourful and light-filled, with a staggering 24ft by 30ft crystal encrusted statue by Damien Hirst at its centre.
With a kitchen headed up by Emanuel Machado (formerly of Balthazar), the menu offers an eclectic mix of classic British and internationally inspired dishes throughout the day, and brunch at weekends; while the bar offers a classic cocktail selection. To say we’re excited is an understatement.
