The Wolseley to open sister restaurant in City of London

Marking its 20th anniversary this autumn, The Wolseley in London’s Piccadilly will host a new opening: The Wolseley City.

The new venture from The Wolseley Hospitality Group is the company's first since it was acquired by MINT last year, after former owners Corbin & King went into administration. 

Situated on King William Street just by Monument Square, the new restaurant will be much larger than its sister venue, offering two private dining rooms and three bar spaces. Curated by London-based Fabled Studio, the venue will have Byzantine chandeliers, Baroque ironwork and 1920’s Egyptian touches. 

The menus at The Wolseley City will retain the ‘all-day’ offering intrinsic to The Wolseley’s DNA. Popular dishes such as schnitzels, soufflé suisse and steak tartare, calf’s liver and bacon, coq au vin will be on offer, alongside a large range of crustacea, with some dishes created uniquely for the City audience. Breakfast, the meal The Wolseley is best known for, will include the classics, plus Wolseley specialities such as bubble and squeak, grilled kippers, fried haggis with duck eggs and smoked haddock Kedgeree. 

A curated list of international whiskies will be available, alongside cocktails and a revolving selection of draft beers. The wine list, much like at The Wolseley, will primarily focus on European regions but with a global expanse, listing offerings from Australia, New Zealand and California, with a ‘fine and rare’ selection completing the portfolio.
