Square Meal Review of The New Angel ?

Before gaining fame and notoriety as one of the contestants on I’m A Celebrity…, John Burton-Race hit the big time as a high-rolling chef – earning two Michelin stars at L’Ortolan in Berkshire and at his self-named restaurant within London’s Landmark Hotel. He later bought Dartmouth’s iconic Carved Angel (once home to the likes of Joyce Molyneux) and re-branded it as the New Angel. Now he has resurrected the concept in Notting Hill, with his long-time colleague Stephen Humphries running the kitchen. Plush wallpaper and white tablecloths make a smart first impression, although the menu of intricately presented dishes founded on luxurious ingredients delivers mixed results. Meaty, succulent turbot and deep-flavoured, beautifully rare quail breast (served with pancetta, baby leaf salad and walnut dressing) were both cooked with skill, but details such as cloying salmon mousse and flavourless Scottish beef fillet let the side down. While it’s early days, we found that style generally overpowered substance at Burton-Race’s new capital venture.

  1. The New Angel in Notting Hill is an elegant yet relaxed upscale dining spot just around the corner from Westbourne Grove. It’s the reincarnation of Chef Patron John Burton-Race’s previous place in Dartmouth (also called The New Angel) which was apparently closed by his ex-wife while JBR was filming “I’m a Celebrity… get me out of here!” in Australia. A bit sad really because, if the new New Angel is anything to go by, it would have been a great place to visit. The atmosphere is pretty chill and the staff helpful without being obtrusive – especially the charming Stephan who talked us through the desserts. At £44/£54 for a 2/3 course meal, its reasonably priced for the area and on par with similar style restaurants around London although the bill quickly grows when you add a cheese course and wine...
