Opened in 2007, LPM London is our flagship location, tucked away in a quiet mews behind Claridge’s in the heart of Mayfair. Its unusual triangular shaped main dining room undoubtedly adds to its charm. In 2020 the restaurant was extended to increase the capacity of the kitchen and introduce a seafood/cocktail bar and some extra tables into an intimate back room.
LPM Chairman, Arjun Waney (co-founder of Zuma Restaurants) and Chef Patron, Raphael Duntoye's idea was to both refine and expand this menu, emphasizing the elements that distinguish Niçoise food, olive oil, courgettes, artichokes, tomatoes etc. Brand new Niçoise -like dishes have been created that have evolved this Mediterranean micro cuisine. The idea was to promote a new take on the general perception of French cuisine. Instead of rich heavy flavours that depended on the use of excessive butter and cream, the restaurant would largely use the elements of Niçoise food, olive oil, tomatoes etc to create a cuisine that was light, healthy and deliciously palatable.
