Since opening Chicago’s RL Restaurant in 1999, 77-year-old design legend Ralph Lauren’s hospitality portfolio has grown to include elegant little equestrian-inspired spots to in Paris, New York, and most recently, London, where Ralph’s Coffee & Bar opened mid-January 2017. The club-like café, adjacent to Polo Ralph Lauren’s Regent Street European flagship, welcomes guests to sip organic, custom-roasted La Colombe coffees in saddle leather banquettes or perch atop cane stools to nibble fried olives with their Old Fashioneds at the brass-topped, 12-seater bar. The menu channels American ex-pat nostalgia, with Cobb salads, all-day breakfasts, and sundaes or cheesecakes for dessert. It’s iconic Americana with international appeal.
