Squaremeal Review of Marianne ?

A “small yet beautiful” restaurant serving exquisitely polite dinner-party food may be of minority interest these days, but Marianne Lumb (MasterChef finalist and erstwhile private chef) has carved a definite niche in Notting Hill. Her cool eau de nil and pink dining room is “like being in someone’s house – cosy and welcoming”, while the cooking is ambitious and skilful, with the bonus of a well-priced set lunch. Lumb’s talents shine brightest in her seasonal tasting menus, which are backed by thoughtful wine pairings: try white asparagus with sorrel and ransoms, linguine with spring truffles, slices of scallop poached in Thai-spiced broth, or Wagyu fillet paired with silky pomme purée and morels. Other beautifully presented dishes include Atlantic turbot with rainbow chard and girolles, while desserts range from a splendid chocolate soufflé with raspberries to ice cream made with Brillat-Savarin cheese and butterscotch sauce. “Worth every penny…we’ll be returning”, concluded one couple.
