Binge London - Boulud's In Knightsbridge!

Legendary celebrity French chef Daniel Boulud has finally opened a restaurant in Europe! Bar Boulud opened in early May at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, in the swanky neighbourhood of Knightsbridge just a hop, skip and jump from the temples of Harrods and Harvey Nics. Open from the unearthly hour of 5.30am for breakfast, lunch and dinner, this bistro and wine bar takes after Bar Boulud in New York. The French menu is based on seasonal rustic fare like Truffled White Sausage, Grilled Atlantic Sea Bass, Braised Rabbit Ragout and Coq au Vin and offers terrines and pâtés made on site by charcutier Gilles Verot. Designed by Adam D. Tihany, the restaurant seats almost 170 in two large connecting rooms, the first with an impressive zinc topped bar and the second with a sleek open kitchen. Look out for walled wine stains from Chef Boulud’s favourite vintages, photographs of renowned bistros and brasseries from Boulud’s native Lyon and watch the chefs at work at the charcuterie bar by the open kitchen.
