Raoul’s Notting Hill
Raoul's is a new restaurant in Notting Hill where diners encounter a bold, chic interior and enjoy a tasty European menu. It is 'Boho meets Rococo'. Whilst the Raoul's name is well established in Maida Vale as a slick brunch, lunch and dinner venue, the new premises on Notting Hill's Talbot Road are on a stretch of road traditionally bereft of glamorous eateries.
Project Orange has created an environment that is bohemian and sophisticated. Entering the restaurant, diners encounter a startling Lloyd Loom wall, rich Damask wallpaper, sparkling mirrors and a glittering polished brass screen that connects the entrance area to the lower level. Reminiscent of Parisian café culture, the mature palette of pattern, texture and colour is designed to embrace the hectic transient atmosphere of morning coffees, brunches and work lunches. Large windows to the front provide a connection to the fashionable, urban street scene outside. From the ochre and parchment white banquettes that border the dining space, diners enjoy a visual feast, taking in the decorative terrazzo tiled serving bar, bronze coloured glass, satin brass panels and ebony lined walls that define the interior.
Below is an altogether different experience more moody and intimate for private functions. Glowing lights edge the dark ebony panelling to the walls and the floor is white marble. The brass screen to the staircase picks up the flickering flame of the mirror-framed fireplace that is the focal point of the room.
