Sit back and enjoy pithivier, pâtisserie and rosé, with a generous helping of French joie de vivre at London’s first Provence Rosé wine bar.
London’s first rosé wine bar, Café Juliette is now open at Harrods London (Ground Floor and via Basil Street). Prepare to be whisked away to a French bistro, where the wine is flowing, the pâtisserie is irresistible and the atmosphere is très chic.
Expect a beautifully blush palette of rosy-hued cuvées – from the refreshingly crisp to the tantalising and memorable – with prestigious bottles from vineyards Mirabeau, Ultimate Provence and Rumor. Let your senses take you on a Provençal holiday with every sip. You might opt for a chilled glass of Idris Elba’s delicate Porte Noire or, for raising a toast, perhaps a rosé Champagne from Dom Perignon, Ruinart or Laurent-Perrier.
Pair your pink drink with a French delicacy dating back to the 17th century, the pithivier; a delicate and decorative dome of flaky puff pastry, filled with the finest ingredients, such as succulent beef fillet and truffle, potato and camembert gratin, and native lobster. And for the sweet-toothed foodies, there’s salted caramel éclairs, dark chocolate and raspberry bombe’s, and vanilla mille-feuille that are almost – emphasis on the almost – too pretty to eat.
With its decidedly Provence-meets-the French Riviera ambience, catch-ups over breakfast and mid-shopping pitstops ease into buzzy evenings here.
According to hotdinners, the bar comes from Unlocked Brands, the same people who are behind the recently opened Homestead on London City Island (and they’re getting the help of Victoria Sheppard (who co-owns the recently opened Queen’s of Mayfair).
KERRIDGE’S FISH & CHIPS
For young and old alike, the familiar flavours and aromas of fish and chips offer comfort, satisfaction and nostalgia. Now, the nation’s favourite dish is being elevated to new heights in a way only Harrods could offer, via celebrated chef Tom Kerridge and his newest restaurant in the Dining Hall: Kerridge’s Fish & Chips.
Discover a menu created by the Michelin-starred chef whereby diners can tuck into Britain’s finest, freshest seafood, all ethically caught and hand-selected by local fishmongers. From the succulent daily catch to hand-dived scallops and native lobster, there’s a variety of grilled and deep-fried options, including Chef Tom’s famous crisp and light gluten-free batter.
The triple-cooked chips, meticulously made over a two-day process, arrive at your table piping hot, golden, and shimmering with sea salt. Choose to pair yours with caviar and crème fraiche, lobster thermidor, or homemade Matson curry sauce and cheese in a nod to Kerridge’s local chip shop around the corner from where he grew up. There’s also deep-fried cockle popcorn reminiscent of the seaside favourite and perfect for dipping, and a vegan samosa created with friend and fellow chef Sat Bains.
And you’ll definitely want to make room for dessert; a dense, flourless chocolate almond cake with salted caramel and vanilla chantilly, and elderflower syllabub with a summer-fruit compote and gingernut biscuits are on the menu.
“I am proud to bring my take on the best seafood dishes to Harrods. I really believe that British talent and produce are at the forefront of great cuisine, and that is reflected in our team and the food we serve.” – chef TOM KERRIDGE.
