Brasserie of Light, Richard Caring’s new restaurant in Selfridges, is making an impression with the flash pack. David and Victoria Beckham were there on Monday night for a dinner held by GQ, to mark the close of Men’s Fashion Week. The couple were joined by rapper Tinie Tempah, presenter Clara Amfo, chef Gordon Ramsay, and singer Olly Murs. It is surprising to see Murs, a judge on The Voice, back in the department store. He once tweeted a warning for shoppers to flee the Oxford Street landmark after hearing non-existent gunshots.
The guests ate burrata, blackened cod, and a dessert of ‘Pegasus pie,’ a pineapple and coconut concoction that refers to the Damien Hirst-designed chandelier on display at the restaurant.
Some of the guests made a beeline for Annabel’s afterwards, where Die Hard actor Bruce Willis was seen dining. He left in the late hours, ahead of promotional activity for his new film, Glass. Evidently he didn’t fancy a bite at Planet Hollywood, the movie-themed chain he helped found in the 1990s.
Willis’ Sin City co-star Jessica Alba is also in London this week, on unrelated business. Alba, who has also starred in Fantastic Four and The Eye, was in town on business relating to her Honest lifestyle brand. One of her meetings was held at Sketch in Mayfair, where she enjoyed a typically whimsical afternoon teas on Tuesday afternoon.
Megan McKenna, the reality star turned country music singer, was out for dinner at Sexy Fish on Tuesday night. She was joined at the Berkeley Square sushi spot by Chloe Sims, her former co-star on The Only Way Is Essex.
Sometimes it’s important to keep things in La Famiglia. The Italian restaurant, that is. The Chelsea favourite was full to the brim on Wednesday night as it welcomed model Lottie Moss for a birthday dinner. She was joined by her half-sister, supermodel Kate Moss, their dad Peter, and other friends and family.
