In collaboration with restaurant group Dining Concepts, Ashley Sutton’s new restaurant, Dear Lilly, is inspired by the dreamy hole-in-the-wall florists found on the most beautiful boulevards in Paris. This floral wonderland is decorated with floor-to-ceiling shelves crammed with vintage perfume bottles, striking heart-shaped marble inlays on the floor engraved with extracts from love letters, as well as other charming knick-knacks. Come here for one of its signature cocktails inspired by France in the 1920’s, garnished with edible flowers and sprigs of lavender, such as the Green Fairy, the Mad Enchantment and the Mademoiselle Lilly. To eat, Dear Lilly’s contemporary European cuisine is offered in the a la carte and set lunch menus, with items such as slow cooked octopus with roasted pepper salsa, poached sea bass with herb crushed new potatoes and salsa verde, and Dear Lilly Heart, a signature dessert involving indulgent raspberries and white chocolate.
Here for a romantic meal? Request to be seated in one of Dear Lilly’s intimate booths, designed to look like oversized vintage jewellery boxes and fitted with sumptuous velvet seats.
