After its Asian-fusion concept Zinnia received a mixed reception, the Colchester-based Elysium Group is determined to crack this difficult site on the Fulham Road. The spilt-level premises have now been converted to an outpost of Mimosa – the glam, Brit-themed restaurant/bar that has been a big hit for the group in its native Essex. Interiors mix TOWIE bling with some Made in Chelsea stateliness – think a gold-and-black colour scheme, ceiling-mounted mirrors and an eye-catching bar where cocktails are taken seriously. The all-day food majors on robust flavours ranging from Cromer crab with garlic mayonnaise or scallops with a curried cauliflower and raisin purée to a veal and foie gras burger in a brioche bap. The robata grill kicks out a decent selection of steaks, and there’s a sizeable brunch menu stretching from eggs royale to a stack of pancakes with streaky bacon.
