It’s been awhile since the Fashion Sept girls have been able to get together. With 7 schedules to work out, as you can imagine it can be a little difficult. Luckily, Clare, Beth and I were invite to the lush restaurant Le Caprice to sample their amazing food and finally have a good catch up.
I had heard about Le Caprice before but had never been so it was so nice to receive the friendly reception we got from the staff and management when we arrived. They were totally welcoming and even shared a few jokes with us which is always a nice ice breaker when you are in a nice restaurant.
The decor was really warm too and had chic black and white pictures on the walls of famous people who have made a real contribution to our modern world.
For the starter I decided to try the salmon and quails egg salad. It was beautifully presented when it came out and was utterly delicious. The quails eggs were done to perfection and the salmon was fresh, flavourful and tasty.
Now I’m a bit gutted because really I shouldn’t of ordered a starter because my appetite since LFW as been pretty off. And the reason I’m annoyed it because my burger I ordered for my main was utterly amazing. Cooked just how I like it (dark on the outside and red in the middle), it tasted incredible and the egg I ordered on top gave a good twist to a classic. The beef was tender and juicy with lots of flavour and the fries we ordered were tall, skinny and very more-ish. I only managed half of it so I think I need to go back for another.
The bar staff also fixed us up with their signature Lychee cocktail, which was the perfect drink to accompany our meal on a late afternoon.
What I didn’t know when we went for dinner was that Beth is actually a vegetarian. I thought it may be a problems as most of the dishes at Le Caprice contain meat but the staff were really attentive and created a starter and main for Beth of her very own.
Le Caprice is a fairly tucked away restaurant for Piccadilly but it is packed with atmosphere (including a very talented piano player) and a lovely team. It’s totally affordable too if you fancied dinner with the girls and has a really romantic environment at night time which you and your partner could easily enjoy.
It would be a great spot for any tourists to stop by too as it’s off the beaten track and it feels exactly how London does, quaint, cultural and classy.
Thanks for having us Le Caprice!
