Located almost opposite Kew Gardens, and just a stroll from the renowned Coach & Horses pub/hotel,
Linnea is the brainchild of Swedish chef Jonas Karlsson (formerly at The Fifth Floor, Harvey
Nichols). Appropriately, given the location, he has named his elegant new gaff after Sweden’s national flower – and his grandmother. Patriotic themes play their part on the seasonal menu too,
although there are also noticeable influences from France and Italy: marinated ‘gravad’ beef is served with horseradish and green beans, roasted sea bream comes with fennel, dill and hay-infused
sauce, and braised pork belly might appear alongside glazed onions and sweet-and-sour cabbage. To finish, consider saffron mousse with sweet wine jelly and shortbread. Prices are more neighbourhood
than big city, and the food is backed by a 70-strong wine list, plus beers and ciders.
I am glad this experienced Swedish chef (having spent nine years cheffing at Harvey Nichols and more), decided to open his first restaurant in Richmond Borough. I'd only properly heard about this new venture recently, someone mentioned it to a Swedish acquaintance some time ago and only now have I made the link after stumbling across it online. Linnea is a very quaint modern restaurant positioned on Kew Green, close to Kew Bridge. It has an unassuming exterior but the interior is slick, inviting and accented with lovely crystal wall lights. It's easy enough to get to from Kew Bridge Station or Kew Gardens Station and ideal for a place to dine after a day out at the gardens...
