Caprice Holdings has confirmed that its Brasserie of Light concept will open next month in Selfridges’ Oxford Street store.
The launch is part of a £300m investment in the store, and has been designed by Martin Brudnizki. The design is centred around a 24ft crystal encrusted Pegasus statue by Damien Hirst.
The menu is described as an eclectic mix of classic British and internationally-inspired dishes, including scallops with red peppers and capers and lobster spaghetti, as well as brunch and afternoon tea, with former Balthazar chef Emanuel Machado heading up the kitchen.
Caprice Holdings founder Richard Caring said: “When you think of the Capital City of the World you think of London. When you think of London you think of Selfridges. In the future when you think of London restaurants I hope you will think of Brasserie of Light.
“A culmination of putting together extreme talent, extreme experience, extreme desire and extreme passion. The Brasserie of Light is a new look spectacle where the input of Damien Hirst, Martin Brudnizki and the absolute strength of Selfridges; this mix has resulted in what I believe to be something very beautiful. It is about light, make-believe and dreams. Dreams in this restaurant will come true!”
