St James's restaurant scene will spring into life this spring when restaurateur Philippe Le Roux opens his flagship restaurant Villandry and spearheads the restaurant offer within the area.
Located close to Piccadilly Circus, 6 Waterloo Place is among the group of venues with incredibly rich histories that have been restored by The Crown Estate as part of their Grand Restaurant project. These venues would be lost had the interiors not been meticulously removed, stored and reinstated over years of restoration. Now commercial working spaces, the public will be free to enjoy these revitalised spaces again.
The Grade II listed building on Waterloo Place, which has experienced a £5million redevelopment by The Crown Estate, is set to serve up to 600 covers a day in three dining areas. Villandry's main restaurant will offer a menu comprising of Italian, French and Spanish cuisine with ingredients of the highest organic quality from local sources. However, Villandry will act as more than just a dining venue, the addition of a deli area will sell a variety of products including salads, sandwiches and groceries as well as high quality, affordable wines.
Philippe Le Roux said, "Villandry is delighted to be part of The Crown Estate's redevelopment of St James's. This beautiful building flanks the entrance to Waterloo Place and provides an ideal location for the Villandry Grand Cafe."
Other restaurants in The Crown Estate's Grand Restaurant development include Brasserie Zedel on Sherwood Street, whose 1930's art deco interior was restored last year. Jeremy King, founder of Rex Restaurants says, "We were very impressed with The Crown Estate's overall approach and vision for the Quadrant development which meant we were able to embark upon the Brasserie Zedel project in an area previously unconscionable. It is fair to say that without The Crown Estate's capital outlay in restoring the basic interior we could never have afforded the refurbishment – especially as we were keen to make it an accessible and affordable restaurant".
Café Royal has also recently re-opened on Regent Street as a contemporary, luxury hotel. Café Royal comprises of 104 luxurious rooms, 55 suites, 5 restaurants and bars including the elaborate and ornate listed Grill Room.
