Brasseria, Notting Hill is the latest restaurant Fettle have completed alongside the Fraquelli Brothers, adding to their growing portfolio of family-run restaurants. Drawing inspiration from classic Florentine and Venetian eateries as well as the warm, personable atmosphere synonymous with their existing sites, we have created a scheme rooted in tradition with playful touches and details ensuring its relevance in today’s London restaurant scene.
Entering from Westbourne Grove, guests arrive in the deliberately less formal café space. The traditionally inspired main bar is in a high gloss oak finish with polished Rosa Tea marble counter and aged brass detailing. In front of the bar sit a series of bespoke bar stools with an upholstered teal leather seat pad. Central to the back bar is a large, vintage sourced clock, surrounded by a glowing liquor display and antique mirror detailing.
The café flooring is a bespoke patterned marble tile sitting against medium stained oak wall panelling. Above, running around the perimeter is a hand painted wallpaper frieze adding both colour and a sense of fun to the space. The ceiling is finished in high gloss off white paint reflecting the warm glow of the bespoke aged brass light fittings. In addition to these, we also designed bespoke brass wall lights that with a conical pleated shade, paired this with brass picture lights and a series of bespoke bar lights.
Seating within the café space is in the form of deep blue leather banquettes with an upholstered roll top section, paired with timber bentwood dining chairs with mustard leather seat pad and tables in stained oak and Rosso Orobico marble.
Linking the café to the restaurant space, guests walk through a bespoke designed wine corridor demonstrating the huge wine list on offer. The restaurant space sits on the corner of the site benefitting from plenty of natural light and views of nearby Portobello Road Market. Finishes and details reflect those of the café space but are elevated with an aged timber floor and geometric patterned fabric to the banquettes paired with yellow upholstered dining chairs.
