The Glasshouse

14 Station Parade, KEW, TW9 3PZ

3 rosettes

The Glasshouse has hit on a winning formula that keeps this classy neighbourhood eatery perennially rammed with lucky Kew residents. First and foremost, of course, there's the food: what's not to like about seasonally driven modern European cooking built upon the solid foundations of classical French cuisine bourgeoise that makes its impact without any need to resort to culinary flimflam? Then there's the setting, a light-flooded, unbuttoned and slickly neutral contemporary space with full-drop plate glass windows that stand out in the parade of shops near Kew Gardens tube station. Conscientious and clued-up staff are the icing on the cake, with Berwyn Davies leading the kitchen brigade's efforts in producing simple and sumptuous openers such as Orkney scallop cerviche with toasted hazlenuts, shaved fennel and orange dressing. Main courses bring a similarly accomplished layering of flavours and textures in dishes that might include red-legged partridge with a white sausage, braised puy lentils and roasted baby beetroot or baked polenta with wild mushrooms, baby onions, turnip tops and mustard cream. Desserts also achieve a level of refinement that only comes with top-level technical ability - perhaps try the dark chocolate mousse with caramelised hazelnut, cremino and a pear sorbet.
