Rooftop dining at Le Chalet

One of the most sought after tables for alfresco dining during the summer was on the rooftop at Selfridges and their collaboration with Q-Grill. Following this success of Q on the Roof, Le Chalet launched within the space for the Winter and it is a perfect apres-shop delight. Nestled on the rooftop high above the streets of the West End Le Chalet is shoppers ski lodge retreat.
You enter Le Chalet via an express lift that transports you to the rooftop, where you enter via a fairy-light lit corridor into a space that is warm & inviting, bathed in sunlight during the day and candlelight during the night.
Tables complete with woollen throws and rugs for chilly shoulders & knees add to the apres-shop ambiance. Le Chalet's menu offers breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea & dinner as well as some amazing hot chocolate cocktails.
Friends & I grabbed a table in December for a quick bite to eat before we went for an evening with Michael Buble ... I chose the Buttermilk chicken schnitzel, with blue cheese fondue & seasoned chips. All were delicious, especially the buttermilk chicken.
This was followed by Spiced Apple tart and custard, which was just perfect..... well worth the wait to bake!
I loved the whole ambiance,and styling of Le Chalet, the food was good, however the service wasn't great and something that I did pass back to the team after visiting. I will visit again before the pop-up closes and hope to go during the day to enjoy the views across London as there is still more on the menu I would love to try.
Le Chalet can be booked here.
Q Grill also have a pop-up at Canary Wharf at the ice-rink as well as their signature restaurant in Camden.
