Colbert: French-Style Brasserie on Sloane Square





Inspired by the great boulevard cafés of Paris, Colbert is a charming and informal neighbourhood rendez-vous in the heart of Sloane Square. The latest offering from Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, the duo behind the Wolseley, the Delaunay and Brasserie Zédel, Colbert, which opened in 2012, pays homage to the grand Continental tradition of classic Parisian pavement cafés, with lots of marble, linen napkins, vintage posters and mirrors galore. Dishes are mostly traditional French brasserie fare, from simple croque monsieurs, to moules marinière and cassoulet, but they also serve wonderful omelettes and an all-day full English breakfast.
