Harden's says

From Caprice Holdings, this elegant Selfridges brasserie features a 24ft crystal-encrusted Pegasus statue created especially by Damien Hirst. With its own entrance on Duke Street, Brasserie of Light is open all day, serving an "eclectic mix of classic British and internationally inspired dishes".

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“For sheer glamour and Damien Hirst’s Pegasus, this gets my vote” – Richard Caring’s “lavish” and “wonderfully buzzy” (at times “ear-splittingly loud”) yearling on the first floor of Selfridges (but with its own entrance) is “visually stunning, with a fit-out that creates talking points and enjoys marvellous views of Oxford Street”. Its brasserie fare ranks somewhere between “better-than-you-might-expect” and “mediocre”, and service can be “amateur”, but serious criticisms are absent. “Populated mostly by ladies who shop and lunch”, it was also nominated by numerous reporters for “a great and glitzy date”: “something about department store dining can actually be quite sexy, and this extravagant presentation kind-of works…” Top Tip – “Would recommend for a drink at the bar as the space is gorgeous, and with pink loos being so OTT it made us smile”.
