Kensington Place

201-209 Kensington Church St, LONDON, W8 7LX

2 rosettes

The glass-fronted brasserie championed a new brisk informality in high-end dining when it opened in 1987. In an atmosphere of infectious buzz, with a large communal table for the sociably inclined, the fish and seafood catches of the day receive due credit. Kick things off with a textbook fish soup, served with rouille, croutons and gruyère, and happiness is assured. Main dishes take in roast hake with a smoked haddock fishcake and garlic sausage or braised suckling pig with black pudding and a pasty of smoked ham hock for meatheads. All are reunited for populist desserts like sponge-topped dark chocolate mousse with peanut praline and milk ice cream.
