A new vibrant restaurant on The Strand, sitting in front of Trafalgar Square and designed by Tom Dixon and his crew.
If the launch party is any indication of how buzzing this place will be when it officially opens, then we’d say you should definitely check it out ASAP!
The restaurant’s name is inspired by Lord Nelson, known as the first Duke of Bronte who had an impressive naval career and the decor reflects this inspiration throughout the stunning space. Made up of a massive dining room along with the Study, (a smaller dining area), the Pantry where you can grab a quick breakfast, an indoor Conservatory with lush greenery and finally the Drawing Room which can accommodate bigger groups for private events – you’re sure to find a spot for any occasion!
The space has Dixon written all over it with a super colourful and modern vibe complete with striking Dixon lighting – sculptural gold designs stylishly hung across the restaurant.
Is the food as impressive as the decor you ask?! YES! We were seriously impressed with the Antipodean and Pacific inspired plates. Think rare breed beef burger with chilli miso, quinoa onion rings and baby gem in a brioche bun or grilled sea bass with watermelon, wild garlic, samphire salad and rhubarb ketchup. Small plates include miso aubergine, crispy buckwheat, pomegranate and feta cheese or honey roasted squash, edamame hummus, rosemary, thyme and sesame seeds. Salads were just as exciting with fresh ingredients such as paw paw, pomelo grapefruit, purple potatoes, mint etc…you will definitely struggle to pick just one!
The bar at the back is super stylish – we challenge you to find a spirit they don’t have! While the wine list is very reasonable starting at £20 a bottle.
Staff were incredibly efficient and super friendly, even on a busy launch night which is always a good sign!
We think this place is going to be heaving once word gets out, so get in early for the smug factor.
