Here's one for your radar. La Serre is landing in London next year, bringing iconic French fare and elegant brunches with it. Already cooking up a storm in Dubai, the Parisian-inspired bistro is heading for greener - and much colder - pastures, setting its sights on our city, in addition to New York and Riyadh, for its flagship stores.
And what better way to make an entrance than by opening up shop in Harrods? The restaurant will be taking over a massive 3,153 square foot space in the iconic Knightsbridge department store, serving up an all-day menu heavily based on traditional French cooking. Breakfast dishes will include hazelnut crepes, eggs Benedict and truffle-topped scramblers, as well as a number of classic pastries and homemade bagels loaded with salmon, shallots and cream cheese.
As the day moves on, vibrant salads, rustic soups and savoury galettes will be available, alongside more substantial offerings such as brie and wagyu burgers, white truffle risotto and tuna tartare with avocado and honey-lime dressing. And, of course, there's the obligatory escargot with parsley and garlic butter for those of you that want to go the full hog.
