Restaurants

Scott's

This time she takes me to Scott’s which has suddenly become the most sought-after and talked-about restaurant in London. Not bad for a place that first opened in 1851 as an oyster bar on the Haymarket. It stayed there for over a century and became one of the great theatrical haunts. My mother explained how, during the 1960s, the renowned impresario Binkie Beaumont used the restaurant as his office, conducting meetings and taking calls at his lunchtime table. And this was where she so often had lunch with her friends and colleagues Robert Morley and Robin Fox. Scott’s moved to Mount Street in 1968, taking up a position in the heart of Mayfair, though losing its place in the hearts of Londoners as the last century dwindled to a close. The IRA bombed it twice—presumably because it was seen as an English institution. But it had become moribund and ignored until 2005, when it was acquired by Richard Caring’s Caprice Holdings, the company that bought out the restaurants revivified by Jeremy King and Chris Corbin—great names like The Ivy, Le Caprice and J. Sheekey’s—as well as such swish rendezvous of my youth as Daphne’s on Draycott Avenue.
