Situated just down from the prominent corner of Jermyn Street and Duke Street St James’s, in a contemporary landmark office building - the space formerly occupied by Simon Parker Bowles’ Green’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar.
Maison François is helmed by Francois O'Neill who was behind Brompton Bar & Grill in Knightsbridge and has worked at Casa Cruz in Notting Hill with Masterchef Matthew Ryle (The Dorchester, Isabel) behind the stoves. Expect a menu of classic brasserie dishes (such as Reblochon gougères and oeufs mimosa as well as ravioli dauphine, Comté and black pepper) in a stylish dining room evoking a very proper Parisian brasserie. Think ceilings hung with Art Deco chandeliers, mirror-filled arches and off-white drapery. A downstairs wine bar, Frank’s, focuses on French producers.
