It’s already time to start thinking about plans for New Year’s Eve and finding somewhere special to celebrate is no mean feat. For a New Year’s Eve in beautiful surroundings, with exceptional French and Italian inspired food as well as a fantastic atmosphere, Notting Hill’s Caractère could just be the perfect fit.
Created by husband and wife team Emily Roux and Diego Ferrari, Caractère’s New Year’s Eve menu is a curation of seven sensational courses celebrating both Italian and French culinary techniques using some fantastic British produce.
Stuffed pappardelle, kabocha pumpkin, parmesan sauce and black truffle; Roast Langoustine, smoked Jerusalem artichoke, pommes soufflés and bisque; Aged Creedy Carver Duck, confit potato, wild mushrooms, fresh horseradish and jus; ending with Homemade hazelnut praline and chocolate chip cookies.
“As a family-run restaurant we love celebrating New Year’s Eve together and want to make sure it’s a special night for everybody. We have chosen premium ingredients to make exquisite dishes worthy of bringing in the new year, ensuring everybody feels thoroughly spoilt!”
The New Year’s Eve menu is £185pp without wine and £285pp including matched wines.

“Inquisitive approach pays off with of the moment dishes” – Fay Maschler, Evening Standard
“Serious cooking, serious service, in a room without pretence. Not so much mini-Gavroche as major Caractère.” – Tom Parker-Bowles, Mail on Sunday
“Roast turbot with smoked cauliflower is an easy contender for the best dish in its postcode” – David Ellis, ES Go London
“The service is excellent: friendly and well oiled. The whole evening is fun and flexible thanks to its pick ’n’ mix attitude. It’s a modern French approach with a touch of Italian that’s reinventing the family wheel, if you will. But this time with a female Roux. Bravo.” – Emma Henderson, Independent
