SquareMeal Review of
The Jam Cupboard at Rydges Hotel
Housed within the refurbished Rydges Hotel not far from Gloucester Road tube station, the stylish Jam Cupboard mixes the big-city vibes of a New York-style central bar with a dining room majoring
on perky Anglo-European cuisine with a few eclectic overtones. The drinks offer brings international wines alongside classic martinis, mojitos and brambles, while the seasonal menu might kick off
with asparagus and hazelnut risotto or beetroot-cured gravadlax with mustard dressing and pickled cucumber. To follow, consider slow-braised Irish ox cheeks with glazed Chantenay carrots and
horseradish pomme purée, a char-grilled burger or cod fillet with Provençal vegetables and basil oil, before rounding off with classic lemon tart or roasted peaches with lemon and thyme. Breakfast
is worth knowing about and set menus are deemed ‘excellent value’ – especially if you’re en route to the Royal Albert Hall.
