1927-2017: Celebrating the 90th Anniversary of the original Boulestin

At Boulestin you’ll find some classic French dishes served impeccably in convivial and relaxed surroundings. But there’s more and not just French food.  We also have dishes from other countries and there are lighter, healthier dishes available.  We are open all day from 7.00 am for breakfast (10.00 am for Brunch on Saturdays) and throughout the day until 10.30 pm. Located in the heart of historic St James’s, we pride ourselves on attention to detail with every aspect of a meal.  We like to think our namesake, food pioneer X Marcel Boulestin, would approve.

‘X. Marcel Boulestin, Doctor of the Philosophy of the table,
Culinary Ambassador to the English, intelligent gentleman of  France, man of the world, essayist of vigor and charm…’

– Donald Moffat, The New Yorker, Oct. 29, 1932
