Square Meal Review of The Greenhouse ?

The fact that Naomi Campbell has been spotted at the discreetly elegant Greenhouse suggests this former stronghold of pinstriped masculinity is now attracting a more cosmopolitan clientele. As for the cooking, the recent award of two Michelin stars tells its own story as the kitchen delivers consummate high-end food with modish European accents. To start, a ‘highly engineered’ combo of Cornish crab brings together emerald-coloured mint jelly, pale cauliflower cream, diced apple and notes of curry, while veal sweetbreads keep company with artichoke, caperberries, coffee and Parmesan. Among the mains, our favourite is perhaps the simplest: the tenderest slices of Yorkshire Galloway beef, accompanied by a deep-fried ball of garlicky mash and a fringe of micro leaves. By contrast, desserts such as praline with popcorn, coffee and cocoa are impressively intricate. The Greenhouse also knows how to impress in other ways, with well-spaced tables, a phalanx of dutiful staff and a world-class 3,000-strong wine list.

Wine List of the Year Sommelier's Award Finalist

Dripping with expensive bottles and rare vintages, The Greenhouse’s list is mind-boggling in size – just keeping track of all the wines must be a full-time job. Yet, for all the nine vintages of DRC (the 1929 is a snip at £17,500), and jaw-dropping selections of first-growth claret (14 vintages of Latour!), the line-up of wines from areas like Alsace, the South of France and Australia really impressed.

    Munch My Way :: The Greenhouse, Mayfair

    The Greenhouse in Mayfair offers unique and contemporary interpretation of the French cuisine. The entrance matches its name, just like you are entering into a garden.. Unique to the place and different from other places I have went. The kitchen is lead by Chef Arnaud Bignon, who was recently appointed the second Michelin Star 2014, a big congratulations and after the meal I wasn’t surprised why they got it...

    vialaporte :: The Greenhouse* // Mayfair // London

    Mayfair’s The Greenhouse restaurant offers guests a unique way to dine in London. As you come to the end of the picturesque Hay’s Mews, you’ll arrive at a lush, tropical garden, with tall, architectural plants that create a serene retreat. Once inside the chic, neutral dining room, large windows frame the verdant view, which creates a relaxing setting for a stylish meal. It’s no wonder that The Greenhouse is popular with both business diners and couples looking for romance. And it’s not just the setting that’s impressive – the food matches-up too...

    Samphire and Salsify :: The Greenhouse

    The Greenhouse is a fine dining Michelin starred restaurant in Mayfair. It’s been on our list for a while so I thought it would be a good place to try for dinner during my gentleman companion’s birthday weekend. It’s down a quiet side street and you could easily walk past the entrance. Walk through the gates however and you’re faced with a beautiful garden. It felt very fancy indeed...
