Kurt Zdesar, founder of the Ping Pong dim sum chain as well as Soho’s Chotto Matte, first opened this site as the short-lived Bouillabaisse but has retreated to his comfort zone to produce this dark and glossy proposition touting 2016’s hottest dish: poke, a sort of Hawaiian tartare set to take fashion-conscious, low-carb London by storm. Eight kinds of poke are served, from classic ahi (tuna) to various fish and seafood spins, along with beef and vegetable versions. It’s prettily presented with edible flowers and lotus roots on a bed of rice, with most of the flavour coming from the insistent presence of sesame rather than the fresh chunks of protein; if you love sushi, you’ll like this. The rest of the Pacific Rim menu is similarly on-trend: lobster and crab potsticker dumplings, prawn tempura, smoky lamb rack and a highly Instagrammable whole lobster mac 'n' cheese – all nice enough, but very much priced for the Mayfair postcode, even if the vibe (low lighting, racy neon slogans, a raw bar) is more Soho. Still, there’s no shortage of takers: lunchtime is a hit with the local investment bankers and hedgies, while evenings see a young international clientele nodding along to the moody beats. A £23.50 set lunch offers a gentle way in.

My admiration for Jordan’s cooking and the fact that Hawaiian food is something rarely found in London meant that I was intrigued to try his new restaurant, Black Roe. Located in Mayfair, and very conveniently near where I get my hair done, Mr S and I popped in for lunch just before I was due to get a blow dry one Sunday. Plush banquettes in moody blues, and large monochrome portraits on the wall gave the restaurant a casual yet sophisticated...

Black Roe, Mayfair – From the outside, Black Roe exudes an image of daring, mysterious, exciting and intriguing. The window display was just ace with that glaring lobster as if saying, “do you dare?”Black Roe looks small but I was surprised that at the number of diners they could seat- I’d guess about 40 – 50 diners? Black Roe’s bar is right at the back of the room and so walking towards the bar, I could not help but lust over the dishes served. It all look very elegantly plated and the colours of the food were like sunshine.
