Gastronomic delights in a discreet Mayfair location

The Greenhouse has been a top destination restaurant for years. Tucked away in a wide Mayfair mews, its decked pathway leads to a serenely stylish space, where super-slick service helps to create an oasis of calm and refinement. Restful shades of beige and ivory are offset by modern dark wood floors, avocado-coloured leather banquettes and chairs, tables immaculate in their finest white linen, and a feature wall with a filigree display of tree branches. A succession of high-flying chefs have run the show at the Greenhouse, and today's incumbent is Arnaud Bignon, an instinctive chef who uses the best ingredients as his starting point and combines techniques old and new to produce dishes with clean, precise flavours that look beautiful on the plate. Spectacular canapés (fennel and aniseed macaroon, tuna and melon wrapped in nori, perhaps) get the taste buds standing to attention from the start. Menus tantalise with brief descriptions that give no clue as to the craft and technical know-how on display: Orkney scallops and sea urchin might get a lift from fennel and clementine - a delightful opener that's light, fresh, beautifully balanced and full of textural contrasts. Next up, a splendid piece of monkfish, served with onion, banana, kaffir lime and Egyptian dukkah spices, or organic Rhug Estate lamb, roasted to perfection, matched inventively with aubergine, fiery harissa and soya. Desserts thrill with their pin-sharp execution - perhaps a sesame praline soufflé supported by pear, ginger, and Williamine pear liqueur. The cheese trolley comes loaded with pedigree, perfectly ripened items, and a knowledgeable sommelier is at hand to navigate a phenomenal wine list.
