Bluebird London was one of the most anticipated openings in New York City in 2018. After the success of its British sister sites in London (White City and Chelsea), the renowned restaurant went stateside and opened up it’s offering of British brasserie style food, but this time with a New Yorker twist in the Time Warner Center in September 2018.
With it being the first D&D London restaurant to launch in New York City, Bluebird London features an all-day café, wine bar, cocktail lounge and international restaurant with breath-taking views overlooking Central Park, it’s no doubt that Bluebird London is top of the list for people to try out when they come to visit, live and work in Manhattan.
The restaurant is an expansion of the beloved Chelsea landmark - an iconic restaurant in the heart of Kings Road and at the forefront of London’s restaurant and social scene. The name ‘Bluebird’ originates from the record-breaking race car driven by famed motorist Sir Malcolm Campbell, which set the land-speed record in 1925, especially fitting given the original London location is located within an Art Deco garage.
Bluebird London’s luxe interiors are often the backdrop for many a socialite, tourist or resident New Yorker's social uploads. Designed by CetraRuddy, the bold and bright upholstery paired with the stripped back wooden tables and killer views make it a winning combination for Instagram and other social accounts alike.
Led by Executive Chef Nicholas Houlbert, the menu features everchanging seasonal dishes that celebrate Bluebird’s British roots, as well as classics that continue to please. Highlights include Beef Wellington and Slow Cooked Short Rib - which have become strong favourites amongst the glamourous crowd that dine at Bluebird London. Those with a sweet tooth find themselves tucking into Sticky toffee pudding and the infamous chocolate Bluebird dessert.
With a clever cocktail selection and an extensive wine list, it’s no wonder people often flock to Bluebird London for a leisurely drink or two. The G & Tea offering is proving particularly popular – a twist on the traditional British afternoon tea with the added bonus of a daily special of a London gin-based cocktail!
If that’s not enough, then the line-up of events and weekly entertainment will definitely entice you in, from Gin-go Bingo to wine tastings and resident DJs setting the soundtrack to your weekend. So if you haven't made your way over to the latest Bluebird yet, what are you waiting for? We'll have a G&T ready for you.
