Modern European


Opened in 1867 by Auguste Kettner, chef to Napoleon III, Kettners in Soho is one of the oldest restaurants in London, and something of an institution. It was a favourite of Oscar Wilde and Lily Langtry back in the day and now it has gained even greater popularity with decadent Londoners and West End theatre-goers. Kettners’ elegant interior is divided into a brasserie and Champagne bar, a club-like space known as ‘The Apartment’, and the Pudding Bar, which is ideal for late-night desserts. The brasserie menu features classic French cuisine like soupe de poisson; moules marinière; beef bourguignon; and crème brûlée. The ambience is warm with a sense of bonhomie and goodwill, as if a party were about to break out among the diners. Maybe it’s the pianist or the charming waitstaff. Whatever it is, Kettners restaurant is a perfect choice for pre/post theatre, clubbing or anytime at all.
