Square Meal Review of Avenue ?

For years, Avenue’s glamorously clinical, white-walled dining room was a regular haunt of Mayfair’s blue-bloods, antique dealers and shoppers looking for eclectic, Brit-accented food and smart drinks. Now it’s re-emerged as an all-American joint – although it still exudes an arty vibe, with exhibits and sculptural installations from new kids on the block. A unique chandelier fashioned from wine glasses takes centre stage in the dining room, while the menu offers contemporary US dishes ranging from clam chowder served in sourdough with littleneck clams and crumbled bay crackers to sharing plates from the Josper grill – perhaps ‘KC suckling pig butt’ with spiced bacon, pecan cabbage, cinder potato and sour cream. The 200-bin wine list focuses on American and Old World classics, with a Coravin system allowing diners to sample prestige wines by the glass or ‘pail’.

  1. I decided to book the Avenue Restaurant and Bar, which is about a 10 minute walk from Piccadilly Circus. As we entered, the interior felt slightly imposing and I wasn’t sure if I was fancy enough to be eating here. However, the service was so friendly that we felt at ease immediately, as they took our coats and bags and showed us to our table. We opted for their ‘Summer in St James’ menu, which was good value at £19.50 for two courses and a glass of prosecco (my favourite drink, summer or winter!). Our waiter opened with a friendly ‘Hello’, and when we smiled at him, he followed up with ‘Is it me you’re looking for?’ This immediately broke the ice as he started explaining the items on the menu to us. I opted for the pork and pistachio terrine to start, with almond-topped lettuce on the side...
