Pollen Street Social

8-13 Pollen Street, Mayfair, London, London, W15 1NQ
Describing itself as a 'contemporary bistro', this 2011 opening by Jason Atherton has turned more than a few heads for the excellence of its food - it's amongst the countries finest!

Their set lunch, if you can get a table, is a particular bargain - although you can also eat in a civilised fashion at the non-bookable bar.

The seasonally-changing menu offered combines a mix of the adventurous with safe dishes not to frighten away city suits and the like.

A summer snapshot brought 'Escabeche of Quail with Chicken Liver Cream'; 'Pressed Tête de Porc, Rabbit & Foie Gras, Piccalilli & Mustard Gel'; 'Light-Cured Shetland Salmon with Avocado, Smoked Herring Roe Cream' and 'Innes Farm Goats Curd, Beetroot &Pine Nuts' among the starters.

'Roast Cod with Broad Beans, Peas, Cockles & Squid with a Parsley Emulsion'; 'Roasted Dingley Dell Pork Belly & Loin with Apple, Curly Kale, Mulled Brambles & Cob Nut Paste'; 'Rack of Cotswold Lamb with Braised Shoulder, Creamed Spiced Aubergines & Black Olive Reduction' and 'Black Angus Aged Beef with Duck Fat Chips & Green Salad' listed amongst the mains.

Puds range from just that - 'Traditional English Rice Pudding' (but even that has the addition of Hay Ice Cream & Lime Jelly); through the ever-popular 'Tiramisu' to the likes of 'Candied Beetroot with Macerated Yellow Peaches, Sweet Carrot Granita & Tarragon Ice Cream'.

Expect top-class service, all round, including advice from an excellent sommelier.
