Eating in a grand ballroom owned by Her Majesty…

Eat like Royalty at Brasserie Zedel

Eat like Royalty at Brasserie Zedel

Now don’t get me wrong Brasserie Zédel is not a restaurant run by the Royal Family, you won’t see the Queen welcoming guests or Charles & Camilla taking your order, but the Piccadilly-based property is owned by the Crown and the leaseholders are renowned restauranteurs Jeremy King and Chris Corbin. Their other London restaurants – the Wolseley, the Delaunay and Colbert – are firm favourites with royalty, movie stars, politicians and are often a setting for the crème de la crème of London society. Brasserie Zédel is perhaps their grandest offering and it is almost with astonishment that you take in the awe-inspiring setting of this Parisienne-style brasserie that has been painstakingly restored from the original architectural drawings of the 1930s by one of the founders of the art deco movement. So aside from the impressive history and interiors is it a good restaurant? TravelBella is a little biased as I have been a fan of the Corbin/King hotspots for many years and tend to be a little spoiled when visiting, but I have taken many friends here and all are impressed with the interior, service and food. Perhaps one of the most surprising things is the price, when soup costs less than it does at Pret a Manger you have to read the menu through twice to make sure you are reading the prices correctly! A fun, buzzy vibe will accompany you during your meal and Brasserie Zédel is the ideal restaurant for any occasion – in fact it does not need an excuse to visit and TravelBella takes every opportunity to go! The surprisingly inexpensive bill at the end of the meal means you can afford to have an after-dinner drink next door in the classic Bar Américain or even enjoy the Crazy Coqs Cabaret, all part of this elaborate and grandiose set-up which makes you feel that you have stepped back in time to the Golden Era of glitz & glamour, you will want to happily Waltz all the way home!
