Not much in Mayfair feels discreet, but along Hay's Mews, despite the obvious opulence of the quarter, it's possible to feel you're somewhere other than the heart of the West End. The little garden terrace that leads up to the entrance of the Greenhouse gives the name of the place its proper resonance, and there's a refreshingly understated feel to the dining room, where leaf-green seating at crisply dressed tables is offset by minimal wall decorations. There has been much changing of the guard in the kitchens over the years, with different culinary styles coming and going, but the present preference, under the restlesly creative Arnaud Bignon, is for highly refined French avant-gardism, with visually striking presentations, from the initial array of appetisers onwards. A menu that credits favoured suppliers the length and breadth of the British Isles, backed by European specialities such as Bellota ham and Greek olive oil, might open with native lobster, rhubarb and puntarelle, given unearthly aromatic impact by green Chartreuse, or match seared foie gras with cocoa nibs and quince. East Asian notes are productively incorporated into main dishes such as John Dory with asparagus and matcha tea, or the Kumamoto oyster and daikon that come with monkfish in squid ink, while Galloway beef is regally enough treated that it comes in two servings, first in yuzu with swede and horseradish, then with mooli, carrot and cucumber in consommé. The aromatic note that distinguishes Bignon's cooking doesn't desert him at dessert stage either, when lemon baba comes scented with sage, or the lychee soufflé is fragrant with hibiscus.
