A London Favorite: Berners Tavern

Berner's Tavern

While in London and Paris, Fabian and I certainly had our fair share of delicious food and memorable meals. One of our very favorites, was the meal we had on our last night in London at Berners Tavern in the ultra-hip Edition Hotel. At the helm of Berners Tavern is Michelin-starred chef, Jason Atherton. The food was incredibly good. We shared the chateaubriand for two which came with a to-die-for oxtail macaroni and cheese. I also ordered a green salad for good measure! Each bite was utterly delicious and cooked to perfection. While we enjoyed our meal and overall experience very much, the star of the evening was the stunning restaurant itself.

The Edition Hotel is housed in what was once five townhouses which were converted into a hotel at the turn of the century. In 2014, the grand space was reborn as The Edition, including the stunning Berners Tavern. It is a grand, beautiful space designed by Ian Schrager. The architecture, particularly the soaring, plaster-laden ceilings are breathtaking. The dining room is laid out perfectly. I can’t imagine there is a bad seat or view in the house! The walls below the plaster work are painted in the most perfect, warm gray. I wish I knew the paint color! Curved banquettes line the center of the room, while tufted banquettes dot the perimeter. A super chic installation of framed photographs encompasses the space and two massive chandeliers inspired by the ones in New York’s Grand Central Station punctuate the room perfectly. Berners Tavern is a feast not only for one’s belly, but for the eyes as well. One of the major reasons I love to travel is because I crave inspiration and visual stimulation constantly. I returned from this trip feeling super inspired and re-energized. Diana Vreeland said it best when she declared “the eye has to travel.” I’d highly recommend that your eye and your appetite pay a visit to Berners Tavern the next time you are in London.
