Launched in 1996 on Brewer Street in Soho, Randall & Aubin is an Anglo/French Brasserie that specialises in seafood and has been delighting foodies, fans and celebrities for the past twenty years - all of whom come looking for an outstanding meal and a fabulous time beneath the glittering disco ball. Relaxed, fun and approachably luxurious, this is a place where lobster and steak are served with a side of good humour and a wink as sparkling as the champagne.
Co-owners Jamie Poulton and accomplished Head Chef Ed Baines share a huge passion for quality ingredients and sustainability, meaning that everything on the Randall & Aubin menu shines with an honest love for creating and cooking exceptional dishes. Since the food is inspired by French and British classics, Moules mariner and French onion soup are always firm favourites, as is the hand-picked Devon crab and the sensational rotisserie chicken that sends its scent of roasting golden meat throughout the restaurant. Add to this the daily specials that are inspired by seasonal produce using local suppliers, and you can be sure of an ever-changing and exciting menu. Every dish is served with more than just a smile, but with real warmth, joviality and enthusiasm that has guests coming back time and time again. Service is accompanied by a lively soundtrack of eclectic music that is an integral part of the restaurant's buzzing, effervescent ambience.
With its marble topped bar height shared tables, loud chatter and peels of laughter are common - from patrons and staff alike. From its roots as a Victorian butchers shop to finding itself at the epicentre of London's gay scene and now to Soho's gentrification, Randall & Aubin have always embraced the old and the new; 18th century chandeliers from Paris share ceiling space with a giant, glittering disco ball, which so perfectly reflects the fun-loving, lighthearted atmosphere that makes Randall & Aubin such a unique dining experience.
