SquareMeal Review of
The Jones Family Kitchen
You’ll find this cutesy sibling to Shoreditch’s Jones Family Project in the stylish Eccleston Yards development, a location which gives it a rare-for-Belgravia courtyard terrace. The restaurant’s concept is that diners are being welcomed in to the Jones’s family home. It sounds horribly gimmicky, but somehow it feels charming rather than contrived. Expect to find a basket of tennis balls holding the front door open and the likes of cousin Katy who ‘always travels with a bunch of grapes’ appearing on the wine list.
House speciality steaks are sourced from Yorkshire farmer and butcher The Ginger Pig, aged for 28 days and served to medium-rare tender succulence. Hearty sides include an indulgent truffle mac ‘n’ cheese and a crisp pot of fries. Uber-fresh burrata, drizzled with a Cabernet Sauvignon dressing that adds a real depth of flavour, or a deeply smoky cut of octopus cooked in a sweet cider glaze, are there if you want something before your steak, and there’s black pepper panna cotta served with Prosecco-drenched figs to finish.
Attentive staff and a strong selection of international whiskies are further draws at a Belgravia newcomer free from the area’s air and graces.
