While there are plenty of private dining rooms in Mayfair, Ormer certainly has some of the best. This elegant fine dining restaurant, with executive chef Sofian Msetfi at the helm, has three private rooms to choose from, each with its own character. Here, you and your guests can enjoy Msetfi's lavish tasting menus of five, six or eight courses. The cuisine is best described as modern European, although there are touches of more global flavours too. There is an awe-inspiring wine list to accompany the food or two levels of pairings for those who like to let the restaurant choose.
Each course at Ormer is as decadent as the last, while still keeping a delicate balance of flavour and texture. Warm Iberico ham jelly might come with parmesan, Bramley apple and nasturtium, while veal sweetbread might be partnered with an earthier ensemble of pear, walnut and mustard. Seafood is treated in the same way, with smart, simple combinations like butter-poached cod with English peas, yuzu and foie gras. Desserts are just as indulgent as what precedes them, with entries like an Abinao chocolate and tapioca tart with Pedro Ximenez sherry and salted milk sorbet to bring the meal to a close.
There are three private rooms to choose from here, each offering a different capacity and vibe. The Tyburn Suite is the most intimate, seating just six guests and is bathed in plenty of natural light, while the Half Moon Suite (which seats 12), is better suited to meetings thanks to its AV setup. The Clarges Suite is the largest of the three, seating up to 22 in a boardroom-style long table and boasts a 65" flat screen and a top-tier AV setup.
