After a nine-month renovation, Chelsea’s infamous Cheyne Walk Brasserie has undergone a complete rebuild, creating N°Fifty Cheyne – ‘introducing a new lease of life into a longstanding Chelsea institution’.
Set over two floors the venue boasts a 70 seat restaurant on the ground floor, and; on the first floor, a 50 seat cocktail bar and ‘drawing room’.
Throughout the restaurant a modern British menu will be served, centred around the open grill, headed up by Chef Iain Smith (previously Head Chef at Jason Atherton’s Social Eating House and his other New York and London restaurants and the Galvin Brothers’ Kitchens).
Conceived afresh in every way, this new Chelsea local will be launching as a restaurant and cocktail bar in March 2019 by Chelsea’s own Sally Greene; Founding Director of the Old Vic Theatre, Proprietor of Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and passionate advocate of quality food and drink.
Beautifully designed by Lambart and Browne, throughout the restaurant a modern British menu will be served, centred around the open grill.
Rising star, Head Chef Iain Smith, will combine flavoursome seasonal ingredients, delivering high-quality dishes.
Eager to create a satisfying and indulgent menu, Iain’s extensive experience as both Head Chef at Jason Atherton’s Social Eating House and his other New York and London restaurants, together with the Galvin Brothers’ Kitchens, will see him deliver skilfully created dishes from the ‘Belted Galloway beef ragout with spatzli, spicy sausage and rose harissa’ to the ‘Cornish monkfish, Roscoff onion, potato straws with roast chicken broth’.
“I’m really looking forward to showing Chelsea and hopefully the rest of London how my enjoyment and passion for my craft shows in all the menus. It is my hope that everyone feels the love that’s gone into every dish and shares the enjoyment’’- Iain Smith, Head Chef
No. Fifty Cheyne sits overlooking the River Thames and Cheyne Gardens, moments from both the Kings Road and Albert Bridge.
On the ground floor is the main restaurant area offering a full dining experience, complete with a 28 person semi-private dining area.
Guests can head upstairs to either the ruby-red cocktail bar or to the light and airy ‘drawing room’ to further enjoy their time at No. Fifty Cheyne.
The wine list is carefully sourced and uniquely priced to make the best of vintages as accessible as possible to all.
The cocktail bar and drawing room have been designed to give Chelsea a refined yet homely retreat with a smart but relaxed feel.
Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, it is ideal for the local residents and professionals working in the area to visit again and again.
No. Fifty Cheyne’s Sunday offers guests the option to pre-order their favourite Sunday roast, cooked especially for them, for example; a whole suckling pig, a rib of beef or a whole salmon.
“No. Fifty Cheyne has been lovingly designed to be a local restaurant that’s a destination for everyone”- Peter Horton, F&B Director Bourne Capital.
Owned by the Bourne family, who have lived locally on Chelsea Embankment for 25 years, No. Fifty Cheyne will be overseen by Peter Horton (Bourne Capital).
Horton will work alongside Chef Iain Smith and venue manager Benoit Auneau on seasonally evolving the menu, cocktail list and wine offerings.
