What’s pushing lumen levels off the scale at Selfridge’s Brasserie of Light?
We’re no advocate of wearing sunglasses indoors, but at Selfridge’s newly launched Brasserie of Light – part of the final chapter of its £300 million investment in its London store – you might be justified in doing so. Firstly, the art deco restaurant and bar faces east, flooding the space with natural light. Secondly, a gargantuan crystal-encrusted statue of Pegasus by Damien Hirst – his largestscale artwork in the city – soars over diners as boldly as it pleases. The restaurant is run with characteristic aplomb by Caprice Holdings, which has cleverly installed Portuguese chef Emanuel Machado in the kitchen, guaranteeing cuisine as bold and exciting as its interiors.
