What they say:
Raring for his next restaurant adventure and leaving the city's Mon Plaisar behind, French chef Franck Raymond is tackling Battersea with a classic restaurant bar. Now open, Augustine Kitchen is a 40-cover restaurant and 20-cover bar that boasts rustic furniture, mismatched marble pieces and feminine flair; Raymond's approach to artisan dining is hoping to showcase French cuisine at its finest. Augustine Kitchen will boast an overawing selection of hand picked ingredients from Monsieur Mouchet Anyhy sur Leman's fish to Monsieur Colliard's charcuterie.
What we say:
Who else is excited to see what Franck Raymond has in store for this new Battersea venture? While working at London's oldest French restaurant was sure to have its historical perks, it's great to see that this heralded chef has moved on to pastures new, especially in so upcoming an area as Battersea. Primed for intimate date nights in South London and smart after work tipples, Augustine Kitchen is a great addition to the Battersea restaurant bar scene. Snails, passion fruit sorbets and a whisky on the rocks? Count us in!
