Champagne and pastries add more sparkle to Harrods

Harrods is boosting its credentials as a food and drink destination with the opening over the next next couple of months of two new high-end imports from France – Paris pâtissier extraordinaire Angelo Musa closely followed by a Champagne bar from Moët & Chandon.

Musa is executive pastry chef at the opulent Hotel Plaza Athénée, where he is known for his extravagant creations. Ashley Saxton, Harrods’ director of restaurants and kitchens, hails him as “a true visionary in the culinary world, who showcases the utmost craftsmanship in pastry”.

The new Moët bar on the ground-floor, meanwhile, is billed as the grand Champagne house’s first permanent bar in Europe. It features a dramatic 34-seater bar (pictured) and will offer Moët’s full range, plus food pairings from Harrods’ in-house chefs – which could mean something delectable from Jason Atherton or Vineet Bhatia, a burger from Gordon Ramsay, fish and chips from Tom Kerridge – or indeed a scrumptious brioche from Angelo Musa.

Later this year, Swedish chef Bjorn Frantzen is scheduled to join the all-star chefs line-up at the Knightsbridge department store when he opens his first UK venture on-site.
