Taillevent Paris, the Gardinier family-owned group behind the iconic two-Michelin starred Le Taillevent, is set to open a unique 70 cover wine and food matching brasserie, Les 110 de Taillevent London, in Cavendish Square this September. Featuring a hundred and ten wines by the glass, paired with contemporary and seasonal French dishes, guests will experience the spirit of Le Taillevent in a relaxed setting.
Making the French form of art-de-vivre accessible to Londoners, the wine list will feature rare and singular wines, caringly curated over three years by Pierre Bérot, Cellar Director of Taillevent Paris.
Pierre’s vast experience managing the myriad bottles of the house cellars has resulted in a list that evokes the richness of the collection and introduces some of its greatest treasures. Guests will be offered the choice of four wines, in 70ml or 125ml measures, exactingly matched with their choice of four starters, fish, meat, desserts or cheese dishes.
The dynamic à la carte menu, developed by Alain Solivérès, Executive Chef Director of Taillevent Paris, has been designed to showcase each product, selected for its quality and seasonality. Executed with precision, each dish will enhance the qualities of the wines on offer.
The brasserie will be headed up by General Manager Giuseppe de Wilde, who brings with him a wealth of experience having worked at some of London’s most prestigious restaurants and hotels.
Taking the art of pairing to new heights, Les 110 de Taillevent London will present this innovative concept beginning at breakfast. Light and hearty dishes will be matched with cold and hot drinks. A special Wine Time menu at the bar, offering small plates and carefully chosen wines, will be available in the early evenings.
The interiors, designed by the legendary Pierre-Yves Rochon, take inspiration from the brasserie’s concept and pays homage to wine production. A chic and warm setting, the design draws on the green of the vine, rich earth tones and oak-barrelled wine casks. Incorporating the colours and materials of viticulture into all elements of the design, Pierre-Yves Rochon honours the theme at every turn. Specially commissioned artworks will adorn the walls, further extolling the beauties of the vineyard.
Les 110 de Taillevent London is set to be a notable addition to the London gastronomy scene, bringing a relaxed style brasserie to Marylebone with a focus on the wine experience.
