The elegant Lutyens-designed building now bears the Conran stamp, with its cool pastel tones, pale wood, and pixellated marble floors. Chef Henrik Ritzen's light-touch cooking is rooted in classic French technique but there are subtle hints of his Nordic roots. This is seen in an elegant starter of smoked eel with beetroot, Gourmande pear and bitter leaves based on superb raw materials, or a main-course involving haunch of venison teamed with pickled walnut purée, roasted celeriac and grey leg chanterelles. Fish is handled with equal skill - perhaps partnering poached monkfish with cockles, swede, lettuce and Jamón Ibérico de Bellota. Dessert brings spiced quince soufflé with stem ginger ice cream.
