Squaremeal Review of Apero at The Ampersand Hotel ?

The “corporatization of the Polpo look” continues apace at this Med-influenced venue attached to the Ampersand Hotel. Dangling Edison light bulbs, brick-washed walls and lots of little nooks make the cellar a calm, appealing spot for brunch and sharing plates “with plenty of innovation”. Kick off with oxtail gougères or soft-shell crab fried in semolina with kale and aïoli before tackling braised pig’s cheek with beetroot risotto and Dorset snails or spatchcock quail with apple, miso and salt-baked carrots. Assorted puds such as Sicilian lemon curd with hazelnut crumble and meringue stay with the theme.  Apero also functions as a cocktail lounge, with a list of well-crafted drinks referencing the nearby V&A: try Frescobaldi, Tintoretti or To a Summer’s Day (a Beluga vodka, lemon and peach spritz inspired by Bridget Riley’s painting of the same name).

After Friday night at the V&A, we opted for the Sharing Menu which consisted of 5 courses for £32. The courses were very tasty and well presented. We were able to substitute a delicious tuna carpaccio for the beef for the non-meat eater. The wine list was a bit limited but the offering was adequate. We would go there again.

    The Critics Guide :: Apero London

    Apero is located inside the Ampersand Hotel in South Kensington. Not your typical hotel restaurant, Apero is a sharing-based restaurant, encouraging guests to choose two or three dishes for each course to share with the table. On our visit to the restaurant we began our meal with a selection of cocktails.
    The first of our cocktails was called the Frescbaldi and was a gin based drink with limoncello and fino cherry. Although very strong, the flavours balanced the alcohol to create a warm but fresh tasting drink. The second, named The Seasons, was vodka based and included Kamm & Sons Ginseng spirit, lemon juice,...
