“One to watch in its new Mayfair location.” - AA Inspector
LONDON W1, LONDON POSTAL DISTRICTS
After three successful years in Wandsworth, his neighbourhood restaurant has relocated to Mayfair, but the approach and quality are unchanged. Staff are attentive and professional. In the kitchen, British produce gets the global treatment, inspired by London's thriving multicultural community, so you can expect vibrant, innovative dishes with well defined, balanced flavours. The eight-course tasting menu evolves with the seasons, and an autumn menu might kick off with a simple and well executed little starter of smoked burrata, served with a pistachio pesto and some fresh radicchio. Follow that with red mullet, marinated and cooked with the skin on, deliciously crisp and adding great textural contrast. An accompanying bouillabaisse is refined and packed with flavours and a velvety parsley sauce adds another element to the dish, and works very well with both the mullet and bouillabaisse. A well-seasoned beef tartare, made with rump rather than fillet, comes with figs for sweetness and is garnished with dots of miso and halved pearl onions. Spot-on risotto with green asparagus and watercress leads on to a beautiful piece of confit salmon with fennel and Granny Smith purées – a very elegantly presented dish. Next up, lamb saddle with Mediterranean purée, kale and black olives is a simple but perfect concept. A refreshing and visually appealing dessert of mango and pineapple with lime gel and coconut ice cream and you’re on the home straight – a take on classic tart Tatin, with thin strips of apple rolled up into a ball and beautifully caramelised, sitting on pastry, with marigold ice cream, brings things to a satisfying conclusion.

About the area
The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.
London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
