Square Meal Review of Benares (bar) ?

It’s not obligatory to shell out on a big Benares blowout; the standalone bar/lounge at Atul Kochhar’s starry Berkeley Square Indian is tickety-boo for tiffin & cocktails, too. Focused service delivers picture-pretty, vodka-based Mumbai martinis from a list of affordable drinks that also includes passion fruit & chutney martini & a saffron & cardamom version using Whitley Neill gin. Also worth a punt are pineapple & ginger mojito & an aptly named ‘perfect sling’, while curry 75 (Champagne, Tanqueray 10, lemon juice & gomme) offers an Indian take on a French 75. Sharing platters & individual bar bites are irresistible: spiced minced rabbit skewers with mint chutney, ginger-infused corn cakes, & sensational tandoor-roasted cauliflower with a chilli blast, followed by a trio of cooling kulfis, make this a Mayfair must.
