    Sit back with an afternoon cup of Earl Grey and crumpets. On the go? In addition to a la carte dining, passersby can stop for hot bacon sandwiches and frankfurters at a take-out counter.

    The Delaunay is the new sibling of The Wolseley, and shares many of its key traits – a strong sense of occasion, smooth service, grand room, retro European menu. Read more

    The food arrives. Howard Hodgkin slices his frankfurters thinly and eats small forkfuls, adding a little mash, and delivers this verdict: “A great new restaurant, very straightforward.”

    Whatever you choose, expect to be served the most fine version of it. And most importantly the ambience will make you feel you are in a top class European capital.

    New restaurant from the folk behind the Ivy & the Wolseley. Very much in the same spirit. Coffee and eggs benedict just as good but a lot easier to get a table - at the moment anyway...
