Julie’s Restaurant

The once-famous, iconic Holland Park neighbourhood restaurant is re-opening (again) with a vibrant new look and an all-day menu of French brasserie classics with a contemporary twist.

Julie’s first opened in W11 in November 1969 with famed interior-designer Julie Hodgess at the helm. A London legend, it quickly earned a reputation for hosting a clientele of rock and roll stars, high society names and Hollywood celebrities. The restaurant reopens under the stewardship of Tara MacBain, a Holland Park local and Cordon Bleu-trained chef. Herself once a frequent customer, she will open the venue as a modern French brasserie in the first half of the next year, with 160 covers and a bold new look from designer Rosanna Bossom. Think yellows, golds, glazed table tops and bespoke chandeliers. The menu by Chef Patron Owen Kenworthy (formerly of Brawn and The Pelican) showcases modern French cooking with seasonal ingredients with dishes such as carpaccio of red prawns and a luxurious lobster soufflé.
