05 Dec Quaglino’s
I love a bit of history, especially when it comes to a beautiful glamorous restaurant that has over 90 years of history and it’s still exudes the same class and style it had from the late 1920s.
Quaglino’s is an extremely beautiful restaurant hidden in St James, the heart of Mayfair in London. It’s ‘respectable’ underplayed doorway cannot prepare you for the wow factor you’re about to experience when you glide down the first set of stairs. You literally feel like you’re delving into the classic 1920s.
The restaurant has so much history and if the walls could talk it’ll have a whole lot to say about the amount of well known people that have gone through those famous doors. From Princess Diana being sneaked through the kitchen to avoid paparazzis to Hollywood legends, to British royalty having a permanent table reserved for the family members. Also, ‘ … it was the first public restaurant ever visited by a reigning monarch, when the Queen and Prince Philip had dinner in 1956. ‘
Quaglinos have adapted well to the ‘new norm’ of keeping its patrons safe and are very particular when it comes to adhering to strict Covid-19 government guidelines.
