Mandeville Place, LONDON, W1U 2BE
Understated contemporary decor and a calming ambience are the hallmarks of this stylish boutique hotel, while unclothed tables and bottle-green banquettes set the tone in the restaurant. Starters include chicken liver pâté with red onion marmalade, and crispy squid with lemon and garlic mayonnaise. The Josper grill is to the fore among main courses, from rib-eye steak, pink and succulent, with mushrooms and chips to an unusual cod and shrimp burger with tartare sauce. Elsewhere are a few salads, some sharing platters and classics like fish and chips with mushy peas. Familiar-sounding lemon posset and sticky toffee pudding are among desserts.
