So, where does The Delaunay rank? Well, it's not bad actually. I have two rules when it comes to brunch: Order Eggs Benedict/Florentine/Royale/Whatever they decide to call eggs on a muffin covered in hollandaise sauce and accompany that with prosecco/Champagne.
I met a group of my girlfriends on a snowy Sunday and I have to say, I love the location of the Delaunay. It's not too close to Covent Garden to be annoying and full of tourists, but it's close enough to still have that busy hub vibe. I also walked by this awesome place on my way, so it got extra points.
Happy Go Lucky Funeral Parlor Seriously.
The bubbles were great, but let's be honest, it's not hard to get decent Champagne in London so i'll move on.
I felt that I needed some iron after a relatively late night out, so I went for the Florentine. If you want eggs Royale, they call it Arlington at The Delaunay. I don't know why and when I asked, they just explained what it was, not why they decided to change the name from the accepted convention. I didn't order it, so that's all I can really comment on.
My only criticism would be that it's a little stuffy in there. The atmosphere isn't super welcoming and it felt like they were putting on airs as if they were The Woseley They aren't, although they are owned by the same group who also do Colbert in Sloane Square. They also make an excellent Florentine. But If I had to rank out of this group, it would be The Woseley, Colbert (amazing Atmosphere) and finally The Delaunay.
The Delaunay is about the same price as the Woseley, so I would go to the latter if you have a choice, but either way, both are going to cost you about £30/head with a drink.
