The Paris-based restaurant will be one of nine to take up residence at the renovated OWO
The OWO (Old War Office) in Whitehall has just announced another restaurant that’ll be joining the redevelopment. Café Lapérouse, a high-end Parisian restaurant, will launch alongside Paper Moon and several other restaurants (including two from Mauro Colagreco of Mirazur) when The OWO opens in the summer.
Making its UK debut, Café Lapérouse will land in The OWO’s central courtyard with seating under a pavilion. We don’t have full menu details just yet, but the restaurant is known for its classic French fare and it will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Paris institution Lapérouse was first opened back in 1766 by original owner and ‘limonadier du roi’ Monsieur Lefèvre but was given its current name – and stature – when it was taken over by Jules Lapérouse a century later. Now owned by the Moma Group, an offshoot, Café Lapérouse, was launched in 2021 with sites at Paris’ Marine Hotel and on Boulevard Haussmann, as well as in Saint Tropez. This new launch will be its fourth, and a win for London fans of haute-gastronomy.
