What’s push­ing lu­men lev­els off the scale at Sel­fridge’s Brasserie of Light?

Robb Report Singapore - - Perfect 10 -

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.
