Square Meal Review of The Capital ?

Tucked behind Harrods, this comfortably restrained, thick-carpeted hotel restaurant has served bouffant-haired ladies, senior bankers, retired admirals & the occasional ‘jean-clad’ interloper for four decades, & has been a step on the career ladder for chefs such as Brian Turner and Eric Chavot. The carte fits the Michelin-star mould, offering clever preparations of highfalutin’ ingredients at top-end prices. Starters such as chicken & leek terrine are exquisitely presented & packed with flavour, while mains bring luxury-laden lobster, crab & truffle omelette or veal medallion with foie gras, potato foam & wild mushroom sauce. The weekend sees an old-fashioned trolley wheeled into action as part of a great-value set menu, when la pièce de résistance might be salmon coulibiac or perfectly cooked sirloin with high-&-mighty Yorkshire puddings. The deferential sobriety of the service is a perfect match for the formal setting.
WINE LIST: Wines from many different countries are on offer here, but the strength lies in France. Of course, Burgundy & Bordeaux feature prominently, but there are also some good selections from regional France. Full of comforting classics. BEST BUY WHITE 2009 M Chapoutier, Petite Ruche, Crozes-Hermitage, Rhône Valley, France, £36. BEST BUY RED 2009 Domaine de la Madone, Fleurie, Beaujolais, France, £39.
