Victory House, the new boutique hotel in London’s Leicester Square, has partnered up with two innovative local restauranteurs to launch its new eatery on site.
The hotel, which opened in November 2017 and runs under the MGallery by Sofitel brand, will open its new restaurant Petit Bistro in collaboration with Ed Baines and Jamie Poulton, the founders of Soho and Manchester restaurant Randall & Aubin.
Located on the ground floor, Petit Bistro will be run independently and will serve French-inspired dishes with a focus on simple food with quality ingredients.
The restaurant seats 70 guests, 30 indoors and 40 on the terrace, serving a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu.
Free-range, premium quality meat is supplied from the Queen’s butchers Aubrey Allen, as well as artisanal French bread and cheese sourced from their expert cheese monger based in Yorkshire.
The restaurant has been designed by architects Michealis Boyd, who have previously worked with Soho House Group to create interiors for Soho Farmhouse and Babington House.
Restauranteur Ed Baines said: “The ethos of our restaurants is always to deliver a dining experience that we ourselves enjoy – focused on pleasure, with hearty, honest, fantastic cooking, served flawlessly yet informally. Petit Bistro’s enviable location in the heart of the West End means we’re surrounded by other eateries, but we’re not trying to compete with the mass market. Our focus is firmly on delicious food, premium ingredients and exemplary service.”
Victory House, London Leicester Square – MGallery by Sofitel is home to 86 bedrooms.
