The Delaunay Restaurant Review

: The Delaunay is big, bustling and very popular. And so it should be, coming from two of the most successful restaurateurs London has produced, Jeremy King and Chris Corbin. It’s in the grand cafés of Europe tradition, with plenty of smart green banquettes, dark wood and brass, and a menu that swings along from breakfast (particularly well-liked as the restaurant is at the edge of the City and near the law courts) to late evening. From borscht to schnitzels; kedgeree to lobster rolls; goulash to chicken Kiev --- it’s all here. Pastries are topnotch; go for the Viennese afternoon tea at £19.75 or the full works with Champagne at £29.75. Like at all of their restaurants there’s very fair pricing, an all-day weekend brunch and a sensible wine list. Oh, and take-out is available, too.
