Poilâne is renowned for its baked goods, which have had a dedicated following in France
since 1932. And now, Apollonia Poilâne has opened the first Cuisine de Bar outside Paris
as a supplement to the family bakery.
The informal restaurant is located in Cadogan Gardens in Chelsea, just a stone’s throw
from the Saatchi Gallery. Wide planks in Dinesen Douglas are a key ingredient in the
simple and clean room with its vibrant atmosphere. Here, attention has been given to
every tiny detail in both the interior design and the cooking, and delicious tarts and
tartines are served on hand-made tables made in Douglas and HeartOak.
The tasteful mix of French baked goods and Danish design in the heart of London has
secured Cuisine de Bar a nomination for the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards, which are
supported by RIBA.
