7-9 St James's Street, LONDON, SW1A 1EE
With its chic Manhattan-style attitude, Avenue's long bar sets a classy tone, while the glam restaurant spreads out around a 'wine-glass' chandelier and decanting bar, delivering a big-city-cool look with semi-circular banquettes, low-back chairs and funky modern art. The kitchen sends out a lively take on modern American fare with a light, fresh, clean-flavoured touch, while not neglecting those who fancy a slab of prime USDA steak from the grill. Octopus comes with squid ink aïoli and citrus fruits in a zingy, pretty-as-a-picture starter, followed by succulent roasted halibut in a lively partnership with lemon croûtons, capers and brown butter. For pudding, try Valrhona chocolate mousse with hazelnuts and salted caramel.
