SquareMeal Review of May Fair Kitchen

Aiming to recreate the Med in Mayfair, the Kitchen has marble surfaces, large windows and dimmed lighting in its seductive dining room. Charming, ever-present waiters and a menu of Spanish and Italian tapas also do their bit. The focus is on ‘sharing, relaxation and conversation’ as diners tuck in to the likes of creamy Gorgonzola gnocchi, or a generous lobster risotto. Dishes are generally small, but while the burrata seems expensive, the plentiful poussin Milanese is well worth its price tag. Chilean sea bass might also appear rather dear, though its melt-in-the-mouth flesh pairs admirably with a glass of earthy Gavi di Gavi – from a commendable list of sunny southern European (and further afield) wines, bookended by Med-style cocktails and a selection of ports and sherries. For dessert, the deconstructed tiramisu is certainly not for sharing: sublime mounds of silky cream on a crunchy, spongy, boozy base. Cheese is also a top choice at this gratifyingly fuss-free venture.

Vi W. bronze reviewer 26 October 2015

Afternoon Tea @ The May Fair Kicthen, Mayfair – I am on a streak for winning competitions at the moment. This time, I have won an Afternoon Tea indulgence, for two at The May Fair Kitchen in association with London Fashion Week. The indulgence meant we also had a glass of champagne each. Situated on Stratton Street, it is in stark contrast to the busy Piccadilly. The May Fair Hotel serves up afternoon tea at it’s hotel’s restaurant, The May Fair Kitchen. The afternoon tea is at £33.00 per person or £44.50 per person includes a glass of Moet & Chandon 2006. I slouched on the rotating armchair with the 3 tier afternoon tea served up in front of me, as my eyes worked from top to bottom admiring the pattisier’s work, the engaging colours and arrangement of the food and begin to wonder how I should approach it. And so, I started with the savoury sandwiches which constitues of: 1. treacle cured salmon, lemon mayo and watercress 2. roast ham, piccalili, mustard cress 3. cucumber cream cheese, dill on tomato bread 4. somerset brie with plum chutney. The bread had dried out forming a slight crust, not visible to the naked eye but was undeniable when we ate. The quality of the bread was only merely average and the filling was so thin that it seemed tightwad. The scones were very buttery (and nice butter too) but were a little dry. The selection of cakes and fancies did better than the savouries. We had strawberry macaroon, millionaire shortbread, fruit tartlet, super moist chocolate cake, pimms jelly and chocolate eclair. The winner was the super moist chocolate cake followed by a highly commended fruit tartlet. The May Fair Kitchen was very comfortable and I could imagine myself quite happy being left alone in my own world, sipping the bottomless tea and coffee. Luckily they gave me a doggy bag to take, because I am not quite used to eating so many sweets at once. I hope that my lucky trail is a never ending path because afternoon tea is something I could have more often. Especially when it is an indulgent one. Cheers!
