Sister restaurant to the acclaimed New York outpost, Bar Boulud bistro and wine bar opened in 2010 in Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in Knightsbridge, under the direction of Michelin starred chef Daniel Boulud.
The interior, designed by Adam Tihany, is inspired by the French winemaking culture. Elements such as oak, cork, red leather, and chandeliers representing deconstructed wine barrels, give the restaurant a rustic, yet refined and contemporary atmosphere. The restaurant is split in four connected dining rooms, including a wine cellar showcasing an impressive selection of large format bottles, and a zinc topped wine bar and lounge in the first room. The second dining room is a semi private area seating up to 50 with an open plan kitchen and charcuterie counter, where diners can watch the chefs at work. It also features two private dining rooms seating up to 24 each or 40 when combined via a sliding door.
The menu at Bar Boulud includes traditional French bistro dishes alongside American classics, including its renowned home-made charcuterie and burgers. In addition to Bar Boulud’s signature dishes, Executive chef Thomas Piat has designed an ever-evolving seasonal menu, taking diners on a journey through the regional cuisines of France, from Alsace to Burgundy, through Provence and the Loire valley.
With over 30 references available by the glass, the cellar is predominantly dedicated to the great wines of Burgundy and the Rhône valley; Daniel Boulud’s favourite winemaking regions surrounding his native city of Lyon. The wine list has also been adapted with a dedicated page to compliment the new regional menus.
