Bronte: A Feast For All the Senses

Launched in July 2016, Bronte is busy serving up fresh, modern dishes from breakfast to dinner. Located on the Strand overlooking iconic Trafalgar Square, Bronte is within a beautiful Regency building, which has an impressive Portland stone façade, traditional colonnade terrace and two-storey arched windows. Inside, Tom Dixon and his talented Design Research Studio team have designed a glamorous and inviting space.

Named after Admiral Nelson, the 1st Duke of Bronte, whose famous statue stands upon Nelson’s Column, this fabulous place is a nod to his much-admired naval career, with elements of a ‘collector’s house’ and treasures from abroad running throughout the design.

The restaurant’s newly-designed interiors have transformed the building into an amazing place. A pink concrete breakfast bar, a green granite kitchen, a pewter cocktail bar and custom furniture that includes jade-green leather banquette seating, are key features of the new restaurant.

Floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the pantry area in natural light, with a subtle and stylish palette travelling through to the main restaurant. Utilising the expanse of the building, each area uses colour and ‘collector’s items’ to create its own personality, with extraordinary materials used generously and boldly, and plenty of foliage to bring the outdoors in.

Some of Dixon’s products are also installed in the space, such as the Gold Fade pendants that hang over the pink concrete bar, while the geometric etched metal forms of Curve surround the green granite kitchen.

The menu naturally reflects the opulence and influences of the interior design. Created by executive chef Andrew Lassetter and appointed head chef Jonathan Villar (who formerly worked under Peter Gordon), the food incorporates Antipodean and Pacific influences.

Perfect for weekday breakfasts, lunches and weekend brunches, the pantry serves up a wholesome start to the day, with dishes including Soft-boiled Eggs with Marmite and Mature Cheddar Cheese Soldiers; Hot Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Duck Eggs on Brioche; and Wild Mushrooms, White Miso and Truffle on Toasted Brioche.

Highlights include a rare breed Beef Burger with Chilli Miso Relish; Quinoa Onion Rings and Baby Gem in a Brioche Bun; and Hanger Steak, with Weeping Tiger Dressing, Pickled Daikon and Kaffir Leaf.
