In a nutshell: Harrods gets a new in-store restaurant
Summing it all up: As part of Harrods overhaul of its Fine Watch department the store is opening up a Chucs so you can contemplate your most recent timepiece purchase over a plate of pasta or a negroni.
Time doesn't stand still at Harrods (sorry - couldn't resist) as the department store this week revealed plans for an overhaul of its Fine Watch Room which include details of a new restaurant.
The expansion of the Knightsbridge store's watch and jewellery section begins next month and is expected to finished next Spring. It'll run across two floors, one of which will include a new branch of Chucs.
It all sounds seriously swanky with Bill Amberg-designed leather walls and a special entrance on Hans Street.
Chucs currently has two branches in London - one on Dover Street and the other on Westbourne Grove - serving up the kind of refined Italian food you'd expect to find at eye watering prices by the sea in Portofino. So expect to see classic dishes like beef tagliata with rocket, or their truffle pizza which the late AA Gill enjoyed when he reviewed it.
