Selfridges is to open a new restaurant as the final part of its £300m investment and redevelopment plans.
Restaurant group Caprice Holdings, which operates The Ivy, Scott’s, Sexy Fish and J Sheekey, will open Brasserie of Light next month. It will offer all-day dining, a central bar and private dining room, all within an art deco brasserie setting.
Architect Martin Brudnizki’s design features bold, colourful light-filled interiors and the largest-scale sculpture in London – a crystal encrusted winged horse – by artist Damien Hirst. Diners will enter via a separate entrance into the double-height space above Duke Street.
Selfridges managing director Anne Pitcher said: “It has been an exciting journey working with [Caprice chairman] Richard Caring and his team on this project, and for what promises to be a spectacular new addition to the Selfridges restaurant portfolio and London’s culinary map.
“I look forward to November when Selfridges will welcome guests to Brasserie of Light, where they should expect the unexpected.”
