The Sparkling Centrepiece
Richard Caring comments “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. The Brasserie of Light is about light, make-believe and dreams. Dreams in this restaurant will come true!”
Brasserie Of Light features London’s largest scale artwork by Damien Hirst. The centrepiece to the restaurant, and in keeping with the Caprice style is Pegasus, a piece of artwork by Damien Hirst. The 24ft crystal encrusted statue has a 30 ft wingspan and soars above diners with hooves lifted, while an East facing aspect floods the space with natural light.
With design expertise by popular Swedish interior architect, Martin Brudnizki, Brasserie of Light features bold, colourful and light filled decor, with an impressive bar and private dining room - a traditional brasserie re-imagined for contemporary London.
Brasserie of Light Dining
The brasserie and bar serves an eclectic mix of classic British and internationally-inspired dishes. The A La Carte menu features dishes such as scallops with red peppers, roasted fennel and capers to start, spaghetti with lobster as a main course and Pegasus Pie with a yuzu coconut cloud for dessert.
Cocktails at Brasserie of Light are a definite must-try during every visit. The popular 'Queen of Time' cocktail is named after the sculpture sat above Selfridges’ main entrance – an all-English interpretation of a classic kir royale with ridgeview Bloomsbury Brut NV English sparkling wine, white heron cassis and Plymouth sloe gin. Also nodding to the store’s legacy is the Est. 1909 cocktail, a timeless blend of Beefeater gin, St. Germaine elderflower and prosecco, inspired by its 109th anniversary.
