Bonhams Restaurant will be closed from 12 – 30 August 2016. We will reopen for lunch only on 31 August; and then lunch and dinner as normal from 1 September.
Located within one of the world's oldest and most prestigious auction houses, Michelin-starred Bonhams Restaurant is the perfect Mayfair destination for lunch or simply to relax with coffee or a glass of wine. Under the direction of exciting new Head Chef, Tom Kemble, the restaurant will serve lunch from 12.00 - 14.30 and stay open until 17.00 for coffee, drinks and light refreshments. The constantly changing seasonal menu provides plenty of flexibility and allows Tom to work closely with producers. His elegant, naturally plated dishes, which use a blend of French technique with carefully sourced produce, won the restaurant its first Michelin star within nine months of opening.
A special feature of Bonhams Restaurant is the chance to sample some of the world's great wines at affordable prices. Selected by Richard Harvey, Master of Wine and Head of Bonhams Wine department, the constantly evolving, eclectic list currently includes Burgundies from Sylvain Cathiard, Jean Grivot and Comte Lafon, Château Lynch-Bages 1985 and Cheval Blanc 1982, Chave Hermitage and Screaming Eagle from California. At least twenty wines are always available by the glass and the excellent house wine, imported direct from the small Domaine Saint-Amant in the southern Rhone, is available at £28 a bottle or £6.50 a glass.
Bonhams Restaurant is open every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evening for dinner from 7.00 with last orders at 9.00.
The £60 five course set menu designed by head chef Tom Kemble, is complemented by an optional flight of wines selected by sommelier, Charlotte Logan-Jones. A full wine list is, of course, also available.
Open to parties up to six, evening bookings are accessed from Haunch of Venison Yard, off Brook Street. Bookings can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org
