Even a locale as opulent as the one that surrounds Kensington High Street can lay claim to a neighbourhood restaurant, and the double-fronted venue that takes its postcode for a name fills the bill in fine style. Inside, the low-ceilinged room is furbished in determinedly monochrome array, with occasional splurts of colour from the modernist artworks, and tables are smartly got up in their best whites for a culinary production that fires on all cylinders. Mark Kempson's dishes look cleanly and neatly designed in the modern way, with a strong emphasis on the true flavours of their principal ingredients. Opening the show might be a double-act of grilled mackerel and smoked eel, accompanied by the sweetness of golden beetroot and mustard, before the main draw arrives in the form of lamb shoulder with winter pickles, calçots and Pink Firs, or roast cod with chestnut gremolata, pumpkin and hispi. Desserts make a commendable attempt to incorporate as much fruit as possible, rather than going wholesale for chocolate and caramel, the on-trend option being polenta and orange cake with passionfruit sorbet.
