The glitteratti have made Le Caprice their eaterie of choice for the last three decades. The long-standing restaurant may have celebrated its thirtieth birthday in 2011 but it's been around far longer than that. One of London's best-loved restaurants, Le Caprice was originally opened by Mario Gallati in the West End in 1947, thirty years after he'd launched The Ivy. Both now come under Caprice Holdings who also own Scott's, Daphne's, J Sheekey and Rivington Bar & Grill, among others. Restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King bought and relaunched Le Caprice in September 1981, creating the restaurant as it is today, bought by Richard Caring in 2005. Following a thirtieth birthday facelift, the black and white interior reminds Jay Rayner of an "Art Deco ocean liner, all chrome panels, uplighters and friendly buzz". Jesus Adorno, who has graduated from head waiter in 1981 to director and 'face' of Le Caprice, is like "one of the fixtures its customers expect to see" (The Guardian). Le Caprice's menu mixes long-standing favourites like fish cakes with sorrel sauce, and their famed iced berries with white chocolate sauce with more exotic offerings of sashimi, seared foie gras, and good quality seared scallops.
