Chelsea Lately / NEWS HUNGRY

Found at what was formerly The Oratory on Brompton Road, Cassis is the latest offering from renowned restaurateur Marlon Abela (who can be credited with Umu and The Greenhouse) and aims to please discerning locals with upmarket French food free from the lofty prices normally expected of eateries wedged between Chanel and Ralph Lauren. Inspired by the Provençal region of France, the menu is headed up three Michelin-starred chef David Escobar and champions innovation with dishes such as grilled prawns with anisette liqueur and fricassee of frog’s legs and artichokes. And such high-end fare hasn’t proved irrelevant in London‘s increasingly causal dining scene, either, with a regular roster of well-heeled diners flocking through its doors since opening. The dining room itself is (relatively) free from pretension, with colourful Matisse originals hanging on the walls, oak-framed wine displays and a grand open fireplace making for a warm, inviting space indeed. It’s no wonder the Kensington crew can’t get enough.
