This summer sees the opening of a brand new hotspot in town, Wild Honey St James. The new restaurant is from chef Anthony Demetre, whose original Wild Honey enjoyed 12 successful years in Mayfair.
Nestled in the heart of the Sofitel St James, Anthony’s menus combine classic French techniques with the finest seasonal produce Britain has to offer. With the kitchen overseen by Head Chef Simon Woodrow, the restaurant is open daily, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition to the à la carte menu, Wild Honey St James offers a cafe menu and an early supper menu. As well as a 16-seat private dining room, the restaurant has its own counter bar and adjoins the hotel’s St James Bar.
With an emphasis on seasonality, Anthony’s menus feature elegant yet uncomplicated dishes. As well as French classics such as Marseillaise Bouillabaisse, the menu also features offal and lesser-used cuts of meat. A separate vegetarian menu is also available.
The impressive corner site, formerly The Balcon restaurant, sees Anthony’s distinctive modern European menus showcased in a striking new dining room designed by interior specialist Jim Hamilton.
We can’t wait to try out Wild Honey, followed by a cocktail in the St James Bar next door, also situated within the Sofitel. Keep an eye on our Instagram page for pictures!
