‘A room for grown-ups, powered by the quiet chatter of satisfied customers' is how one reader fondly remembers Claude Bosi's patrician Hibiscus. Others have simply drooled over the ‘mind-bogglingly
clever food' and the special-occasion feel of it all. But in December 2012, Bosi decided it was time for a change and closed the restaurant for a radical makeover involving a new layout and new
menus. The new design incorporates pale wood, dark slate, metal and leather, with added pizzazz from seasonal displays of up-to-the-minute Brit art; the whole space also includes a multifunctional
development kitchen adjoining the private dining room. As for the food, Bosi has reprised several iconic dishes from his time at the original Hibiscus in Ludlow alongside many new creations, with
guests choosing from a 12-strong daily line-up.

As you walk in (and you could so easily miss it, given its unassuming frontage on Maddox Street) a comfortable sofa and a reception desk that could double as a headboard. I’m starting to think that I need to change that whole velvet-buttoned look. Everything in cool blues and creams, comfortable upholstery. Everyone and everything is quiet when we get there, at pensioner-friendly 6.30. It’s great though, because I could talk to the staff. I am that woman. I have turned into my mother. Kill me now.
It’s quite Michelin formal, service wise. Some fabulous cashews. Tasting like salt and vinegar crisps. That’s because they were made with sea salt and malt vinegar. One to try at home... More from Saying it straight »
We combined a Christmas shopping day on Saturday with a meal at Hibiscus. Set just off Regent Street, this is the London restaurant of Claude Bosi. There was a menu for lunch, or a choice of a la carte, which unlike anywhere else I've been offers a choice of 3, 6 or 8 courses, a selection of seasonal ingredients and that's about it. We went for 6 courses, one for a vegetarian, and one for me with no restrictions. We left the choices to the chef, and each course was a surprise... More from Edesia Is Hungry - Food of the Gods »
Claude Bosi moved to England in 1997 & first gained Michelin recognition at Overton Manor in Ludlow, where he met his future wife Claire. The couple opened Hibiscus in Ludlow in 2000, gaining one star in 2001 & a second two years later. They sold up in March 2007 to take on a new challenge in the capital. Since their arrival in Mayfair, they have regained both Michelin stars & Claude continues to make waves with his powerful French food. The couple still own the Bell Inn in Yarpole near Ludlow, which is managed by Bosi's brother Cedric.
