Situated amongst the eclectic streets of Soho, Kettner’s oozes a sophisticated French flair in a rather vibrant part of London. Known for being the city’s very first restaurant serving French cuisine in 1867, the establishment has been taken over by the successful Soho House group and has undergone a vast refurbishment. Despite being labelled a ‘members club’, it is still secretly open to all so you will not be asked for a membership number whilst making a reservation.
The food itself was exceptional! Stuck for choice and turning to my fellow diners for inspo, I finally settled on the Lake Farmers District Rib Eye, it was simply divine and cooked to perfection! Always leaving a bit of a room for dessert I got more than a sugar fix with a flavoursome helping of blood orange sorbet served in a chalice and topped with champagne.
I would highly recommend dining at Kettner’s. It’s simple, yet chic and the service was truly admirable, especially considering the amount of requests.
