Occupying a futuristic new building appended to the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, Magazine is bidding to become Hyde Park’s first destination restaurant – and judging by the packed tables, slick service and displays of culinary prowess when we looked in, it has hit the ground running. Chef Oliver Zange (aka Ollysan) is a self-confessed Japanophile, and dishes contain his signature mix of oriental and occidental flavours. Our platter of sushi was excellent, particularly a salmon, avocado, cream cheese and teriyaki ‘volcano roll’, while robata lamb tartare deserves plaudits for both bravery and execution. To follow, Black Angus beef fillet with sweet potato, Swiss chard and edamame might sit alongside seasonal European ideas such as venison with chocolate sauce. Magazine’s gleaming white interiors suggest an ultramodern marquee, complete with an undulating roof and clear glass walls overlooking a landscaped garden.
