With his long-running reputation as an A-list chef at The Square, Phil Howard hit the ground running in his next venture in this discreetly posh Chelsea neighbourhood gaff. Its bare tables, pale wood floors and curvy, pastel-hued seats have a Nordic simplicity that chimes well with the more relaxed culinary approach. Howard’s right-hand man Toby Burrowes followed from The Square to lead the team on a day-to-day basis; his technical abilities are beyond question and the kitchen delivers brilliance at every turn. There’s a tendency for vegetables to get star billing these days, perhaps in an opener of roasted and shaved cauliflower with cashew cream, pickled mushrooms, toasted almonds, truffle and Mimolette cheese. Next up, top-notch materials inspire a full-on dish of peppered rib-eye and glazed short rib of beef, the richness ramped up further by bacon and stout jam, potato galettes and chanterelles. Fish dishes might take in wild zander fillet with creamed lentils, smoked eel, leek hearts and grain mustard. To finish, maybe Brillat-Savarin cheesecake, its lush creaminess counterpointed by blood orange and cardamom.
