THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES S Luciano Restaurant Review

: THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES TO WHEELER’S OF ST. JAMES’S. This is Rocco Forte and Marco Pierre White’s venue in St. James’s, in what was Madame Prunier’s once famous fish restaurant. It’s a large, noisy venue with Bob Carlos Clarke’s photographs of spectacularly posed women on the walls which make interesting viewing and are not for the puritanical. The huge and resonant Johnny Walker bar, designed by David Collins, boasts a mosaic floor, black marble pillars and red leather chaise lounges. Past the bar at the back and down a few steps and you're in a large room with well spaced tables and acres of white linen. It’s reminiscent of L'Escargot in the 1970s, with the same buzz and feeling of excited anticipation. The menu goes for Italian classics: beef carpaccio, char-grilled calamari, oxtail fettuccine, roast sea bass with potato and fennel and the like. The wine list surfs the world and is sensibly priced, making this a restaurant for all occasions.
