Opened with high expectations, the fourth venture by restaurant royalty Corbin and King has burst onto the scene in London’s Marylebone area serving up a taste of Viennese traditions.
Chris Corbin and Jeremy King are a duo of unique and innovative restaurant and cafés based in London. Corbin and King Ltd are driven by a deeply-held set of fundamental beliefs and values, which are reflected in all that they do. The company celebrates diversity and equality as well as investing in staff and customer satisfaction rather than profitability.
The latest venture started with a unique design concept last October, and Fischers Restaurant opened the first week in June. Corbin and King gave Interior Designers Brady Williams Studios a specific brief pinpointing the historical era of 1930’s Vienna.
Speaking to Premier Hospitality, Shayne Brady, director of Brady Williams Studios said:
“Corbin and King are very involved in the design brief and like the concept to have a story. The guests comfort and restaurant functions are key factors in the design.”
Located on Marylebone High Street, the venue aims to meet the needs of the local area, providing a welcome neighborhood café. A spokesperson for Fischers said:
“Fischer’s is a local place – to linger on your own at any time of day over a paper, cake and coffee; to relax with friends over lunch or dinner; to meet over breakfast or for an early evening aperitif.”
This provocative interior is based around 1930’s Vienna, the design consists of a sumptuous mix of finishes and eclectic artwork. The walls are an elegant combination of custom-made ochre tiles, bespoke wall covering and rich timber veneer panelling. A large period clock, which has been re-clad in timber hangs from the ceiling above beautiful timber veneer tables, which are veiled in fresh white table linens after breakfast service. Columns have been plastered with exquisite 1930’s reliefs and the pattern on the marble floor reminiscent of the works of Klimt. Every detail has been considered in this evocative space.
Shayne Brady said:
“The feedback has been extremely positive. The design is very specific so it has generated a lot of opinions and the general consensus has been very positive. We are delighted, as we believe all design should cause an emotional reaction and create an opinion.”
The restaurant serves breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. The Breakfast Menu boasts pastries, eggs Benedict and a Viennese breakfast amongst other traditions served with tea and coffee while brunch offers pate, strudels and sausages. Lunch and Dinner Menus offer up cheese, fish and schnitzels followed by ice cream coups, chocolates and coffee. An expansive Wine Menu is additionally available.
Concluding the interview, Shayne Brady said:
“We have been thrilled to work with Corbin and King, as a young company, we have been very fortunate to work on such a prestigious project and are thrilled that our client are pleased with the results.”
