If you haven’t already been to Bar Boulud London at the Mandarin Oriental, why not? Uber chef Daniel Boulud’s only showcase this side of the pond, it’s a brasserie with bags of panache, a killer menu and drinks guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
Already a fan? Check out the brand new ‘Bar’ specialising in chic cocktails, craft beers and wines.
This ‘Bar’ features several high tables with central ice wells for chilling a bottle of Champagne or the presentation of elegant seafood sharing platters. Alternatively head to the central bar for a taste of the new charcuterie boards: think terrines, pates and hams, all of which are highly recommended.
The perfect post-shopping respite, Bar Boulud is in the heart of Knightsbridge so you won’t need to struggle far with your purchases, and with the Mandarin just upstairs you can always slink off for a nap if the wine list goes to your head.
