New Wing, Somerset House, Lancaster Place, LONDON, WC2R 1LA

2 rosettes

After winning much acclaim at the rustic glasshouse restaurant of Petersham Nurseries, Skye Gyngell has brought her trademark style to the grander stage of Somerset House. The regularly changing Mediterranean menu delivers good-looking plates of seasonal fair with flavours that shine. A knockout starter of squid with chilli oil and mashed broad beans shows a kitchen that knows what works with what, while generous mains triumph with a pairing of grilled lamb and asparagus, boosted by a clear-flavoured lovage salsa verde. The lightest black treacle cake is cleverly teamed with citrus curd, warming candied ginger and zesty clementine. Though prices are high, a fixed-price lunch option eases the bottom line.
