Square Meal Review of Marianne ?

Marianne Lumb’s CV lists stints at Le Gavroche and The River Café, plus a top-three appearance on MasterChef: The Professionals and a successful career cooking for the rich and famous. Her latest project is this bijou eatery – a lesson in understated elegance, complete with parquet flooring, green eggshell walls and just five smartly dressed tables. Matching the intimate supperclub mood is a pithy fixed-priced menu of seasonal, sophisticated dishes – witness a pitch-perfect starter of scallops on a zingy purée of Breton artichokes with pata negra ham. Elsewhere, char-grilled Wagyu beef fillet lets the meat do the talking and shepherd’s pie is given a contemporary spin, while desserts such as blackberry tarte Tatin finish things off nicely. Given that prices start at £48 for three courses, the food could be more daring, but with expert attention all the way, everyone feels cosseted.

While relaxed and friendly in person, chef has clearly built on her incredibility varied private and professional chef experience to put-in-place a kitchen (and team) that runs like clockwork. While the cooking space is only the size of some restaurants’ coldstores, the dining room is equally small, seating a maximum of 14. The delicately lit, calm space is instantly relaxing, dotted with people enjoying exquisite food in a harmonious environment, with the Maître’D delivering an expert yet warm front-of-house service...
