Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall
Mayfair, London - West
It's got that intimate feeling of a Parisian classic neighbourhood restaurant, with some serious French bistro cooking clout. You'll find it discreetly set in a small and quiet cobbled street behind the glitz and glamour of Berkeley Square. Diners will enjoy Les Platanes for its casual yet refined bistro appeal, perfect for a leisurely lunch or an intimate dinner. Its name meaning 'plane trees' comes inspired by the iconic trees to line the lanes of Provence, and nearby Berkeley Square. These trees are famous for their historical ties to both London and the South of France and their comforting, revitalising shade. The décor at Les Platanes takes its inspiration from classic French bistros with a colour scheme of cream, teal and oak, complemented by recreations of great nineteenth and twentieth century artwork.
