Langan’s Brasserie Reopens in Mayfair

An original London institution of elegance and eccentricity, Langan’s Brasserie has reopened its sleek doors in Mayfair with a menu filled with classics and interiors brimming with fresh, contemporary style

A true heavyweight of London’s dining scene, Langan’s Brasserie was the place to see and be seen at back in the 1970s. Known for its established elegance and eccentricity, the iconic venue is now officially open to the public to enjoy once again.

At the helm of the new brasserie is acclaimed duo Graziano Arricale and James Hitchen, two experienced restaurateurs bringing a plethora of knowledge and years of hospitality expertise to the project. 

Reimagined for a new generation by Peter Mikic, who cites his inspiration as a celebration of British craftsmanship with European flair, the new 3 storey brasserie draws upon 20th century design in a fresh, contemporary fashion. Stepping through Langan’s hallowed doors, guests enter the ground floor bar, made from 3 different marbles and adorned with a circular ‘pop’ pattern.

On the interior front, picture a palette of sage green in the main dining room, offset by neutral accents with Langan’s dedicated seafood bar positioned towards one end of the room with its curved stainless steel overhang, adding a sense of sculptural theatre. Langan’s now listed staircase leads guests from the ground floor to the new invite only late lounge and the basement offers a stunning private dining room which seats up to twenty guests.

Guests can also admire a number of stunning artworks, expertly curated by an in-house consultant. Langan’s has also pledged to support independent museums and art institutions in the UK celebrating homegrown talent and providing the perfect backdrop to showcase rising stars in the industry; taking centre stage in the ground floor dining room is a mural designed by Glaswegian born and dwelling France Lise McGurn.

Offering breakfast (from 8th November), lunch and dinner daily, the menu features an essential array of classics that renowned British-French brasserie. From theatrical dishes such as beef tartare served either tableside or Aller-Retour and the famed spinach soufflé with anchovy sauce, to the Langan’s fish pie and Scottish Salmon with Sorrel Sauce & Confit Lemon, guests will delight at the diverse and contemporary menu with its nod to Langan’s culinary heritage. 

A raw seafood bar will be the centrepiece of the dining experience with a sumptuous array of fresh British oysters dressed in Shallot Vinegar or Ponzu, a Plateau de Fruits de Mer for 2 and a selection of seafood crudo to name a few.

Langan’s serves all of the cocktail classics along with some playful additions which incorporate unique flavours and reflect the restaurant’s theatrical personality. In homage of the esteemed individuals that frequented the original brasserie, signature cocktails include the 1976with Ron Zacapa Centenario 23, Apricot & Bay Leaf & Tonic, which honours the year that the original brasserie opened and the Joan Collins with Tanqueray Rangpur, Roasted Pine Nuts Milk & Propolis, a nod to the well-known actress who was regularly sighted at the restaurant.

Graziano Arricale and James Hitchen comment: ‘We are so proud to be bringing the new and reimagined Langan’s to London.  We look forward to creating a real hub for the locals of Mayfair along with those from the worlds of fashion, art, film and music to help us bring Langan’s back to its rightful place at the centre of Mayfair.’

Since it first opened its doors, Langan’s was about more than dinner, and more than a party. It was a place where Mick Jagger and David Bowie could share a cocktail, a hub for the well-heeled and the spirited. Now, that joie de vivre has been reimagined for a new age.
