SquareMeal Review of
Restaurant Michael Nadra Chiswick
With a culinary CV including the likes of Pétrus, Chez Bruce and La Trompette, Michael Nadra has had no trouble transforming his self-named gaff into one of Chiswick’s go-to destinations. The restaurant’s chic neutral decor, animated atmosphere and courtyard garden make this “gorgeous venue” perfect for a romantic dinner, and it’s still lauded as the best value in the neighbourhood. A prix-fixe menu promises top deals at lunch or dinner, while a six-course tasting offer allows the chef’s skill to shine with refined dishes such as ceviche of salmon with yuzu and sweetcorn purée, steamed sea bass with prawn and chive dumplings, pak choy and lemongrass bisque or aged Angus fillet steak and braised cheeks with girolles and rich truffled mash. Desserts are indulgent classics (chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream, treacle tart with clotted cream), while the impressive 200-bin wine list includes some good options by the glass.
