This excellent Chelsea restaurant, in the World's End section of the King's Road, is run by Joe Mercer Nairne & David O'Connor - whose impressive combined experience takes in Chez Bruce, The Square & The Ledbury - and this spills over, giving us really impressive early indications.
Whilst the menu changes with the seasons, an autumn snapshot brought 'Leek & Potato Soup with Chanterelles & Truffles'; 'Scallop Sashimi with Oyster Beignet, Ponzu Dressing, Ginger, Chili & Cucumber'; 'Foie Gras & Smoked Eel Terrine with Beetroot Relish, Sunflower Seeds, Horseradish & Toasted Brioche' and a much enjoyed 'Duck Egg Tart with Red Wine Sauce, Turnip Purée, Lardons & Sautéed Duck Heart' amongst the starters.
Followed by 'Roast Cod with a Ragoût of Mussels, Girolles & Charlotte Potatoes'; 'Char-grilled English Veal Rump with Violet Artichokes, Aubergine Caviar, Crisp Brain, Gremolata & Roasting Juices'; 'Roast Grouse with Game Chips, Bread Sauce, Paté & Damsons' and 'Gnocchi with Cavolo Nero, Reblochon, Wet Walnuts & Cèpes' on the list of mains.
Puds maintain the high standard with perhaps 'Tarte Tatin with Crème Fraîche Ice Cream' and 'Chocolate Tart with Pistachio Ice Cream' there to tempt you.

What did you like about the Restaurant?
A lovely atmosphere, with a good mixture of diners who did not have their meals rushed. There wasn't a dish on the menu I wouldn't have loved to try. The chocolate tart did indeed tempt me; the filling was fluffy rather than solid, and so very rich.
