Squaremeal Review of Colette's at The Grove ?

The Grove lies just 20 minutes from Euston &, while the exterior is grand & formal, inside is decidedly funky, with the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant, Colette’s, hung with contemporary paintings & decked out with modish cream leather chairs. Balancing old & new is also evident in the kitchen. A pile of delicate & moist crabmeat, on top of a thin layer of coriander-cured tuna, is crowned with a generous portion of sevruga caviar. Similarly impressive is the mallard & foie gras: the meat is wrapped around a large portion of liver, then rolled in a fine layer of breadcrumbs & roasted until crisp. So, when one cuts through the firmly textured meat, out oozes soft – almost liquid – foie gras from the centre. Desserts, too, are classic-with-a-twist: a mousse-like bitter chocolate tart is partnered with praline ice-cream & a modish shot glass bubbling with a pale yellow citrus foam. Admittedly, all this indulgence does come at a fairly hefty price, but it’s not a greedy one for such labour-intensive dishes, & service is both cheerful & super efficient.

    You know that moment when you walk into a fine dining restaurant and it’s ever so hushed, and perhaps a little nervy? It’s similar to how I felt when walking into Colette’s – the fine dining restaurant at The Grove Hotel in Hertfordshire. After sipping on a pre-dinner aperitif in the lively Glasshouse bar and people-watching on three-inch heeled ladies up for a good time, it felt ever so subdued in this corner of the great mansion.

    But as the night unfolded, what I feared might be a stuffy, uptight three hours, became one of those experiences where you feel you’ve experienced something really quite special....

    Colette&s is a fine dining restaurant located inside The Grove. Head chef Russell Bateman won National Chef of The Year in 2014, so this is a unique and enjoyable experience to be able to enjoy a range of dishes prepared by a chef with such an accolade.
    We sampled their tasting menu, which is simply entitled "Symphony". Each dish arrived looking and tasting absolutely superb, we also opted for the wine pairing.
