Claude Bosi at Bibendum

Bibendum Might Finally Win A Michelin Star

Michelin Starred food.

Eat enough, and you’ll end up with a couple of spare tires.

And now Bibendum – the famed Kensington restaurant set in Michelin House (a former Michelin tyre factory) sporting several huge stained glass window designs featuring the Michelin Man – are finally getting a Michelin Star-worthy chef. Becuase in their 30-year history as a restaurant, in a stroke of thick, rubber-coated irony, they’ve never won one.

That chef is Claude Bosi, who’s former restaurant Hibiscus won two Stars in its time. Now that it’s closed, he’s bringing his skills to Kensington in two parts:


Will be a seafood restaurant with an oyster bar, and dishes like Dressed Cornish crab, and Lobster aioli with tarragon. Meanwhile,


Will be more of a fine dining experience, in line with Bosi’s former restaurant Hibiscus. Dishes will include the likes of Galician beef fillet poached in a thick stock, or Dover Sole Farcie for two. Just don’t try it solo…

…it’ll likely tire you out.

NOTE: Claude Bosi at Bibendum will open on March 29th. You can check out their website and book a table right HERE.
