Not many people know this but the first ever restaurant The Queen visited in her reign as Monarch was Quaglino’s.
In fact Queen Elizabeth II was the first ever Monarch to dine in a public restaurant. Ever.
And what a good choice Her Majesty made ey? (Ok, so we’re a little biased, of course.)
Hot Dinners has compiled a short list of London establishments fit for a Queen, our Queen to be precise, and we’re thrilled to have been included in the round up. Hot Dinners writes how “Way back in 1956 Quaglino’s became the first public restaurant to host the Queen for dinner following her coronation. This was a big deal – given she was the first reigning monarch to dine in a public restaurant, at least in living memory.” and goes on to mention how “sixty years on… there are some remaining features – not least the grand sweeping staircase.”
To celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday and the 60 years it’s been since she last sashayed down our sweeping staircase, our Executive Head Chef Mickael and his team have created an extra special menu available 12th -14th May, inspired by dishes the Queen might have enjoyed here at Quaglino’s 60 years ago.
Available for three days only, enjoy a Kir Royale on arrival followed by four delicious courses.
