Square Meal Review of Fera at Claridge's ?

With the launch of Fera, Londoners have their first chance to sample Simon Rogan’s food since his extended pop-up Roganic closed. The name means ‘wild’ in Latin, and the man himself has said that the restaurant contains the DNA of his two-Michelin-starred L'Enclume in Cartmel, while being respectful of Claridge’s heritage: what was formerly Gordon Ramsay’s domain remains a grand art-deco space of ocean-liner proportions, but the new walnut tables are bare, and the combination of green leather seating and stone and slate crockery references Rogan’s earthy, farming-and-foraging approach to things. Memorable flavour hits are many and thrilling: a dense whip of potato and Winslade cheese studded with springy diced duck heart; garden-fresh pea wafers with fennel and flowers; a dish of stewed rabbit frilled with crisp ribbons of batter; and a grilled salad involving Isle of Mull cheese, truffle custard and sunflower seeds. On the downside, we felt that flavours were not sustained as vividly as they are at L’Enclume, and the attentions of myriad staff (including chefs) was off-putting – first-week jitters, perhaps. Even so, Fera is dazzling confirmation of Rogan’s arrival in gastronomy’s international big league.

  1. We do a lot of things that our ancestors would find regressively, inexplicably primitive. In the past (and right now in the developing world while we’re at it), living in a field without running water, electricity or plumbing would be considered poverty. In the modern West, we call it camping and subject our children to it. Foraging arguably falls into the same category – scouring the wilderness for ingredients may turn up the freshest greens, but it seems terribly inefficient and inconsistent to the layman observer. If chef Simon Rogan is best known for anything, other than having his Cumbrian restaurant L’Enclume appear in The Trip, then it’s for his dedication to foraging. While foraging isn’t explicitly stated to be in use at the kitchen of Fera at Claridge’s, his newest restaurant, the menu is allegedly all about seasonal ingredients. Then again, it’d be hard to find a restaurant in London that claims it isn’t about seasonality – it’s the latest fad...

    Lady Aga :: Fera at Claridge's

    Fera as in wild - like feral. It’s Latin and it’s also the latest dining installation at Claridges hotel from Simon Rogan who hails from, most notably, L’Enclume up in Cumbria; a two Michelin star establishment with a heavy focus on foraging and locality. I’ve never been, but I know people who have and they say it’s better than The Fat Duck. Wild is perhaps not an attribute you would necessarily align with Claridges hotel; one of London’s chicest hospitality destinations - all elegant sophistication and not in the least bit untamed. I might have felt a little vulnerable and prey-like having flung myself through the revolving doors into Claridges vast urban safari of Art Deco luxe and encountered a distinct lack of enthusiasm to show me to the dining room but, once you’ve located the red velvet curtains of Fera, it’s hospitality central. The staff are so charming and pitch-perfect in their reception it’s almost comical. It also helps that they all look, well, just so damned good! I particularly loved the girl’s uniforms of colourblock navy and black long sleeved shift dresses; a look that The Blonde summed up as ‘futuristic air hostess’...

    Samphire and Salsify :: Fera at Claridge’s

    Fera at Claridge’s is the hotel’s brand spanking new restaurant by Simon Rogan – his first London venture since the very successful “pop-up” Roganic in Marylebone. Having eaten particularly well at L’enclume and The French, we were really excited to be trying his new place. Fera (which means ‘wild’ in Latin) has replaced the old Gordon Ramsay restaurant and what a transformation it is. The dining room is ever so handsome. It’s a very battleship grey affair with plush carpets, dark leather seating and beautiful sections of stained glass on the ceiling...

  4. Fera at Claridge’s is Simon Rogan’s 2014 London venture at what used to be Gordon Ramsay’s art deco dining room. Remodelled with a chic olive grey and silver colour scheme, this is without any doubt one of the most stylish dining rooms in London. The food served is equally beautiful too. This is partly achieved through the way Rogan sources and selects his ingredients. With the amount of greenery and flowers on show, he gives Columbia Road market a run for its money, though these impressive dishes are also a result of his meticulous, artistic style. But what about the food and its flavour? Strangely, Fera was a bit of a roller-coaster experience for us. Strange, because months and months of preparation would have gone into creating these menus. Successful influences would have been adopted from his **2 star l’Enclume and elsewhere. While some dishes were wonderful, others were just nice or even a bit flat. A shorter, punchier menu could have achieved a higher level of consistency with less work. That said, the wonderful things were outstanding, so the overall feeling we came away with was very, very good...

  5. It's finally here - the biggest and most anticipated opening of the year. The excitement hasn't been just contained to London, but globally. Renowned chef Simon Rogan was chosen by Claridges to take up residency at the hotel after a long stint with Gordon Ramsay - whose restaurant i visited about 10 years ago. If my memory serves me well, i loved it a lot, so the new restaurant Fera, had some big shoes to fill. Simon runs some of the UK's best restaurants, such as the famous L'Enclume and recently publicised The French in Manchester on TV's Restaurant Wars. Fera, which comes from the Latin word 'wild' was named so to reflects Simon's cooking utilising foraged and wild ingredients - all affected by the seasons and weather. The restaurant itself also deserves mention. Designed by Guy Oliver this art deco room is as opulent and stunning as its food, a perfect match. Cooling calm colours of pastel greens and ocean blue grey and a ceiling adorned with stained glass, it really is spectacular on the eye...
