The Story

Colette – a touch of decadence, a twist of classic cuisine and a pinch of ‘je ne sais quoi’.

Co-founded by Dimitri and Mira, Colette attributes its namesake to Dimitri’s grandmother who brought a real sense of joie de vivre, and an eye for uncompromising quality to the family table.

The team finally sets eyes and immediately falls in love with its first location on the Fulham Road. Formerly a bank, it needs extensive renovations as well as the removal of a vault in what would house the new kitchen.
