Square Meal Review of Apsleys – a Heinz Beck Restaurant at The Lanesborough ?

THE LANESBOROUGH IS CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR A MAJOR REFURBISHMENT. DUE TO RE-OPEN LATE 2014

No one should expect affordability from a three-Michelin-star chef cooking in an iconic London hotel, but Heinz Beck’s reappraisal of Italian tradition still manages to turn heads. Some find it ‘wonderful in every respect’; others are immediately seduced by the splendour of the dining room (extravagant floral displays, vast skylights, thick carpets, reimagined classical art), but find the food ‘mediocre’. Portions are ‘tiny’, so it’s probably best to go for the tasting menu – a seasonal cavalcade that might yield silky foie gras crusted in crisp quinoa with cherry syrup, olive-crusted lamb with polenta chips and artichoke purée, and the always-worth-ordering carbonara fagottelli. Desserts are intricate tasting plates in their own right, playing on the theme of, say, chocolate or strawberries. Service is quietly assured, and the wine list is an encyclopaedic compendium of Italian winemaking.

    Edesia Is Hungry - Food of the Gods :: Apsleys

    Apsleys is the London outpost of Heinz Beck, whose 3 star La Pergola in Rome is of some renown. Based at The Lanesborough, it's a beautiful space, especially welcoming for our spring lunch due to a huge skylight flooding the room with a warm light. The kitchen is headed up by Heros De Agostinis.Starting with a glass of Franciacorta we chose from both the a la carte and set lunch menu, with a choice of 4 vegetarian dishes across both menu's for my wife. Bread was served with a dish divided between flakes of salt and a good olive oil. I tried a crisp wafer, ciabatta, sourdough and olive over the meal, and all were excellent....

    Samphire and Salsify :: Apsleys

    From the minute we walked through the door of the hotel we fell in love with the place – the greeting from every member of staff was that of warmth and friendliness. The dining room was simply stunning with its glass roof and three huge chandeliers – it’s possibly my favourite dining room in London. It had a feeling of understated luxury which was matched by the charming and efficient service...

  1. Aspley’s is one of those little gems that might not pop into your head if someone asked you where they could find a classic Italian trattoria with fantastic service and great food. Particularly because it’s home is a grand London hotel, the Lanesborough. But those who don’t remember this restaurant or are simply put-off by its location will miss-out on chef Heinz Beck’s classic food. This acclaimed non-Italian born chef has been cooking Aspley’s since it opened in 2009.

    The overall feeling when you arrive at this chic hotel is one of how stunning and sumptuous this Hyde Park corner restaurant really is....
