Since opening its doors in 2005, The Ledbury, under Australian chef Brett Graham, has evolved into one of London's very best restaurants. The Notting Hill setting sets it physically apart from the high-flying gaffs in the centre of town, but the kitchen's output is entirely in tune with current trends - powerful flavours from ingredients that are enhanced by the cooking techniques, never overpowered. There's a small terrace out front, behind an army of planters, while the interior is understated, stylish and contemporary. The staff are thoroughly professional, but also rather fun to be around. From the fixed-price four-course carte, set lunch and tasting menus (including a mightily impressive veggie version) come simply stunning looking, creative dishes that eat as well as they look. Start with white beetroot baked in clay, flavoured with caviar salt and served with smoked and dried eel, or a delightful artichoke number with Muscat grapes and walnuts. To follow, grilled cuttlefish keeps company with new season's garlic and cracked wheat, and Cornish turbot is the heart and soul of a course with oyster cream and brown bread. The quality of the ingredients is truly impressive, and they get the respect they deserve from a kitchen team who display outstanding ability, evident in a glorious piece of Ibérico pork partnered with purple carrots cooked in hay. The creativity doesn't stop at dessert stage - how about pear cooked in brown butter with Jerusalem artichoke ice cream and malt cake? Outstanding. The excellent wine list favours France while embracing the entire world, and also includes a range of sake and non-alcoholic cocktails.
