Avista

Millennium London Mayfair, Grosvenor Square, LONDON, W1K 2HP

3 rosettes

The Millennium Hotel Mayfair with its Georgian frontage and grand neo-classical Doric columns is an imposing presence on Grosvenor Square, while its Avista restaurant, with its own separate entrance, is one of the most inspiring modern Italian restaurants in the capital. The dining room is suitably attired for the Mayfair postcode, with a contemporary finish including modern artworks and even some exposed brickwork. Executive chef Arturo Granato's bilingual menus deliver classic combinations in a modern manner, but the 21st-century cooking techniques enhance the first-rate produce rather than obscure them. Start, perhaps, with hand-picked Cornish crab cleverly matched with pickled shallots, a light Granny Smith apple foam and coconut snow, or beef tartare with Caesar dressing and some fresh truffle. Pasta options might include red cabbage tagliolini in a venison ragł enriched with Barolo, while a fishy secondi might be lemon sole in a wonderfully light batter partnered with trompette mushrooms, candied onion and Jerusalem artichoke soup. There's plenty of finesse at dessert stage, too, judging by a dark Valrhona chocolate number with the flavours of pistachio and mandarin, or the house's version of a classic tiramisł with the addition of hazelnut crumble to raise it up a level or two.
