110 des Taillevent London
This clubby new restaurant on Cavendish Square draws heavily on both the space’s history as a bank (historic financial institution Coutts) and the earthy tones of French vineyards whose offering is such an important part of the Taillevent brand. Like its namesake in Paris, Les 110 des Taillevent features 110 carefully curated wines available by the glass and bottle – unsurprisingly the space is dominated by a beautiful bar and wine store. French interior guru Pierre-Yves Rochon worked with owners the Gardinier family from the beginning, making sure the space cleaved to its Francophile roots. Rochon’s design reads like a French who’s who: blond wood pedestal tables by Rosello add a light touch while curtains by Phillip Coudray give an intimate feel. The plates are from Bernardaud and the cutlery from Christofle.
