The Greenhouse in Mayfair offers unique and contemporary interpretation of the French cuisine
The entrance matches its name, just like you are entering into a garden.. Unique to the place and different from other places I have went
The kitchen is lead by Chef Arnaud Bignon, who was recently appointed the second Michelin Star 2014, a big congratulations and after the meal I wasn’t surprise why they got it
The food is refine, modern, balanced and delcious
We booked for the Set lunch offer on Toptable and it was worth it… Before we start a beetroot meringue filled with wasabi mascarpone was serve… Airy, light and amazing wasabi and beetroot was a perfect combination
Follow by the typical selection of breads.. The baguette had a nice bitey crust and the chestnut brioche was delicious with the chilli butter…
With this served to get ready for the main meal, let see what they have in the current set lunch
The beetroot was amazing.. Fresh, sweet and slightly acidic married well with the horseradish with a hint of luxurious truffle and savour smoked duck.. I dish I just enjoy every single bite..
The crab was fresh and sweet and the foam of rocket and artichoke adds that depth of flavour but the downside was the saltiness of the pasta which was abit too strong for me
For mains its lamb with coconut rice and pineapple and whiting with curry, spinach and pequillos
The lamb was tender, savoury and still retain the lamb profile which amazing went well with the sharp and creamy tropical coconut rice…
The whiting was flaky, sweet and super fresh and the peppers and curry adds that nice heat and aromatic character.. The downside is I think a crispy skin would have elevated the fish and a little bit more curry would be perfect but overall a delicious, light dish
For dessert its cox apple with hazelnut ice cream, caramel crumble follow by their petite four
Usually I’m not a big fan of apple crumble but this was delicious, tart apples cut by the slightly salty crumble and nutty hazelnut was perfect balance of texture and flavours….
The petite four were perfect in complimenting your tea or coffee such as the raspberry crumble, lime marshmallow, passionfruit jelly
The Greenhouse without a doubt deserve that second star, the dish had the right balance of flavours and texture… Refine, simple and contemporary… With a set lunch at only £25 for three course is one place you must try when in London!
