39 Whitfield Street, Fitzrovia, LONDON, W1T 2SF

3 rosettes

On a corner in Fitzrovia, not a million miles from Oxford Street, Ollie Dabbous' restaurant reflects current trends in both interior design and culinary thinking. Ollie's world is free of chintz and heavy sauces. The stark interior shows the bones of the building with exposed ducts, bare light bulbs, concrete and metal, while the cool 60s-style chairs look the business. When it comes to the menu, expect unusual foraged ingredients, creative presentation, and exciting flavours. The set dinner and tasting menu offer no choice, so settle down and go with the flow. The set lunch requires a couple of decisions and is fabulous value for money given the level of cooking. An opening salvo might be sea trout tartare with candy beetroot and marigold shoots, the flavours and textures hitting the mark, followed by duck egg mayonnaise on toast with spring truffles and white asparagus. There's clarity of flavour throughout and the apparent simplicity belies the skill and technical proficiency in the kitchen. A meat course might be barbecued pork jowl flavoured with juniper and caraway, and, to finish, a cherry blossom teacake is served with Tahitian vanilla ice cream. Head down into the equally hip Oskar's Bar in the basement for cocktails incorporating home-made syrups and infusions.
