Harvey Nichols, 109-125 Knightsbridge, LONDON, SW1X 7RJ
It's all about great food and wine up on the top floor at Harvey Nics, with a classy food store, a café and the flagship restaurant, the forerunner of all the various First, Second, Fourth (and indeed Forth Floors) in branches of the swish department store around the country. As one might hope, the Fifth Floor restaurant delivers bright contemporary dishes that do indeed follow the seasons avidly, setting out with the likes of pan-fried Rye Bay scallops with marinated carrots, smoked haddock croquette, buttered samphire and carrot and orange gel. At main course stage, the cooking remains accurate, delivering clean-cut flavours in easy-on-the-eye dishes. Sautéed cuttlefish, red pepper purée, provençale beans and marjoram jus provide a perfect supporting cast for a pancetta-wrapped roast loin of Kentish rabbit, or you might prefer halibut poached in Barolo wine with salt-cod brandade, smoked eel, and radish and red wine butter. Kiss the diet goodbye with a white chocolate and ricotta cheesecake with poached rhubarb and champagne sorbet.
