The DelaunayJeremy King and Chris Corbin, "the nation's most polished and enterprising restaurateurs" (The Independent), the pair responsible for The Wolseley, have taken inspiration from the grand cafes of Old Europe for The Delaunay, a restaurant which lives up to the great expectations such a high profile establishment attracts. Within weeks of opening the accolades were pouring in: "another surefire winner" (The Guardian), "you feel you've found the perfect restaurant" (The Independent), and "another success for this dynamic duo" (Hardens). The only voice of dissent was Zoe Williams who wrote, "I was not set on fire by the menu" in The Telegraph; though she too was seduced by the "unspeakable glamour", green leather banquettes and elegant 1920s decor created by David Collins Studios. The all-day dining menu includes favourites from The Wolseley (Birchermuesli, steak frites, chicken soup, and oysters), as well as a wide selection of Wieners and Schnitzels. The adjacent Counter at The Delaunay, with its own separate entrance on Aldwych, offers sitting space for walk-ins and serves take-out or eat-in food throughout the day.
