LONDON (Reuters Life!) - A new restaurant at 85 Fleet Street in London features a design that highlights the role the building once played as headquarters of Reuters news agency, one of the world's major media organizations.
Fleet Street was renowned as a buzzing center of the printing and newspaper publishing industries from 1500 when Wynkyn de Worde established a printing press near St Bride's church until the latter part of the 20th century when media organizations moved away from the "Street of Adventure."
The press in Britain is still collectively referred to as "Fleet Street"
Now, chef David Burke creates food for customers in several dining spaces modernized by contemporary British designer Terence Conran on the two lower floors of the original building, which was designed and built in the 1930s by British architect Edward Lutyens.
"It's very simple and very generous food," said Burke, originally from Dublin and formerly a chef at London's Bibendum restaurant, adding that the menu is based on "regional French food with some modern British and Irish touches."
