The Balcon fuses British and French styles in Pall Mall
Guests at luxury London hotels looking to prop up a local bar and enjoy high-quality food need look no further than Pall Mall's newest addition, The Balcon London.
The venue boasts a cavernous space full of opulent touches, such as ornate marble columns, oak and ebony spiral staircases, a champagne balcony and mahogany dining chairs.
"For a sense of arrival, a sense of place and a sense of being part of a scene, The Balcon is the place to eat, to drink, to see and be seen," explain the owners.
"Soak in the atmosphere of this modern London and Parisian grand brasserie under the champagne balcony, at the charcuterie bar or at your preferred table."
The menu promises a fusion of French and British cuisine, spawning such items as brioche toad in the hole with pistachio sausage, Normandy onion soup with Roskoff onion and Aspall English cider, and the Balcon Scottish been and foie gras cottage pie with chanterelle mushrooms.
"Let the charcutier, the Champagne Angel and the rest of the cast take you on a culinary journey with dishes inspired by both classic British and French cooking methods," adds the group.
"The Balcon your all day dining destination."
The kitchen is helmed be head chef Vincent Menager, who trained under Frederic Anton of Le Pre Cateian in Paris.
"We love the concept," commented The Handbook, a luxury events publication.
"It's inspired by the interiors of Coco Chanel's 1920's Paris apartment at 55 Rue Cambon and highlights will include vintage cocktails from antique recipe books. There will also be a Champagne Angel on hand to provide expert advice."
