“Hâtons- nous aujourd'hui de jouir de la vie. Qui sait si nous serons demain?”
"Henry Harris....is widely regarded as the finest French chef with the decency to be British”
Tim Hayward, The Guardian September 2010
Chef Patron Henry Harris opened Racine ten years ago and over the last decade this award winning French restaurant has become a firm London favourite. His careful sourcing of good seasonal ingredients mean that he has put together a great menu of French bistro and restaurant classics - filet au poivre, lapin à la moutarde,veal chop & Roquefort butter, tête de veau and soupe de poisson along with salads of fresh picked crab or heritage tomatoes and herbed goat's cheese.
Beef has always been an important part of the menu and as well as the 28 day aged fillet steaks from Scotland. Henry has worked with O'Shea's of Knightsbridge to select and age very special ribs of beef for the Côte de boeuf with Béarnaise sauce which has become another Racine signature dish.
The wine list of French classics and greats that is enhanced with some European and New World gems and along warm and attentive service that gives ownership of the dining room to the diner combines to create a great neighbourhood restaurant.
In the heart of Knightsbridge and close to the Royal Albert Hall, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Royal Court Theatre, Racine is one of the finest French Restaurants in London and is the perfect place for a pre or post theatre supper.
