There’s no obvious clue that the well-groomed Georgian townhouse on the corner of a leafy little residential Kensington street is anything more than just another smart-neighbourhood eatery, but gastronomes know that this is a destination worth seeking out. The interior design is certainly in keeping with the postcode, with the series of spaces done out in shades of grey with splashes of colour coming from the modern artworks on the walls. Light, modern cooking, courtesy of the talented young chef, Ben Murphy, delivers clever combinations of texture and bold flavour, all deftly engineered with invention and flair and dressed-to-thrill presentation. Roast celeriac stars in an impressive opener alongside a gutsy vegetable ragout ramped up with truffle, mint oil and emulsion, and Parmesan. Next up, superlative halibut shines in the company of grelot onion, potato terrine and a potent jus. To finish, pear in various forms is matched with maple mousse and crunchy pecan feuilletine.
