Caprice Holdings to open new restaurant in Selfridges

Caprice Holdings will open Brasserie of Light on 22 November in Selfridges, as part of the London department store’s £300m investment.

The 130-cover restaurant will serve breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, with the kitchen led by Portuguese chef Emanuel Machado.

Example dishes include oak smoked salmon with rye bread to start, flat iron chicken with wild mushroom sauce and truffled mashed potato for main, and Pegasus pie with a yuzu coconut cloud, sesame biscuit, charred pineapple and caramel for dessert.

As well as the main dining room, there’s a private dining room with space for 16 guests and 30 standing.

The bar will serve signature cocktails inspired by the legacy Selfridges, alongside classic drinks and an extensive selection of wines.

The restaurant will have a particularly striking design, featuring London’s largest scale artwork by Damien Hirst, Pegasus – a 24ft crystal encrusted statue with a 30ft wingspan that will soar over diners.
