Time & Space is an interesting arrival on the Mayfair dining scene. It has been here nearly a year but has been low profile so far. It deserves more attention, with intriguing cuisine in an elegant modern setting.
The decor consists of a period room in the heart of the Royal Institution, bravely modernised with purples and blacks. It’s good, but not as refined a makeover as some of the grand hotels nearby have gone through. However at £15 for two courses at lunch one would not expect it to be.
Service was excellent and attentive throughout; possibly helped by the low turnout on the day I dined. The food was thoroughly modern continental with many interesting combinations. I choose from the set menu and had pear and blue cheese salad to start followed by pork in a rich sauce with a perfect square of dauphinise potato. I enjoyed these, thinking they were creative and interesting dishes, but felt the blue cheese and the rich sauce almost overpowering. However, I would welcome going back to try more from this creative chef. Presentation was strong too.
With coffee they bring a great selection of petits fours and other little treats, reminding me of the sort of thing you have at the end of a Michelin starred meal. They were great
In conclusion, it’s a great value, unusual and elegant dining room in the middle of Mayfair. Well worth a try. The free museum upstairs is also worth a wander around.
