The Mayfair members’ club, Caviar Kaspia, has opened its doors to the public for the first time since relaunching last year. 

The original space was a members-only club in Bruton Place, which opened in the early Noughties. But, following a near 20-year hiatus, and subsequent relocation to Chesterfield Street, Caviar Kaspia relaunched as an upmarket club for fans of fish eggs.

Now, it has opened its doors to the public, meaning guests no longer need to front up a £2,000 membership fee to dine there. This follows on from the Paris original and the New York restaurants, both of which are also open to the public for reservations.

The space, naturally, is very high-end. The Paris original is nearly 100 years old, and the restaurant in London maintains many of the same luxurious styling nods. The restaurant is adorned with pale blue tablecloths, dark wood walls, mirrored ceilings and priceless artworks. 

Bright Madeleine Castaing wallpaper and plush interiors are the luxury hallmarks of this converted townhouse, with each floor of the building offering guests a distinct dining or drinking space.

Things begin at the comfortable ground floor bar, a relaxed space, which sits below a dining room for around 50 covers on the floor above. Another level up, on the second floor, is a bookable private dining room and lounge which can interconnect for functions and caviar tastings. 

The menu, unsurprisingly, focusses on the finest caviar varieties. Expect choices of Imperial Baeri, Oscietra, or the finest Beluga to top classic dishes like steak tartare, croque monsieur and various versions of eggs.

The famed baked potato with caviar (created by the Paris restaurant in 1927, but, perhaps embarrassingly, immortalised by “Real Housewives” star Kathy Hilton) also features on the menu, served simply alongside creme fraiche.

Priced between £96 and £606 — depending on the quality and the amount of caviar to top the dish — this is probably London’s most expensive potato.
