Summary

“It’s early days, but all the signs are good for Corbin & King’s new venture” in St John’s Wood (on the site of a defunct branch of Carluccio’s) – “a big hit in an area where, surprisingly, there are few really good places to eat” (and “streets-ahead of the nearby Ivy Café”). The faux-French styling is laid on with a bit of a trowel, but the end-result is enveloping and very “stylish”; while the mostly-French brasserie fare steers the typical C&K line between being very acceptable and merely acceptable. “Terrible acoustics” is an issue raised in some feedback (“excessively noisy for the elderly St John’s Wood clientele”, according to one septuagenarian reporter).

Summary

Corbin & King’s latest opening takes over the prime St John’s Wood site vacated as part of the retrenchment of the Carluccio’s chain. An opening some time in 2019 is expected, with such limited details as are available (for example, Jeremy King’s comment that it will be “Colbert meets Fischer’s”) suggesting a Continental, grand-café style reminiscent of the group’s other ventures.
