Brasserie Zédel, London
La Fête des Rois
Brasserie Zédel is a grand Art Deco restaurant housed in a space that dates back to 1915. The brasserie is all marble, warm wooden panels and brass with a stunning chandelier in the centre of the hall.
In January I was at Brasserie Zédel to celebrate La Fête des Rois (Three Kings Day). In France it is the tradition on Epiphany (6th January) to gather with friends and family.
There was a great jovial atmosphere on the night, with all the diners wearing crowns of all kinds: paper, fabric, metal, even inflatable ones.
The Galette des Rois is tart made of layers of puff pastry filled with almond cream. Bakers or parents making the tart will hide a fève (bean) inside the galette, then whoever finds it (usually a kid) will be king or queen for the day.
In such a quintessential French setting you will find traditional French food and wine to be served.
