SquareMeal Review of Corrigan's Mayfair

Silver Award

Corrigan’s has become such a Mayfair institution that it flies a little under the radar these days. The London restaurant rollercoaster gets more breakneck every year, launching ambitious young restaurants from their seats as it hurtles down the dips and around the bends. Corrigan’s, meanwhile, is unbudging, and perhaps a little underappreciated as a result, compared to the capital’s hot new openings.

It’s hard to imagine the effervescent Corrigan seated in the restaurant that bears his name – at first glance, the blue-toned dining room and polished expanses seem too staid and elegant to contain him. The western reaches of Mayfair are prime business lunch territory, though, and Corrigan’s clearly does a good trade on this front.

The Irish chef’s robust, comforting cookery is well and truly on display here, with a menu of absolute crackers. A lobster ravioli hits both ends of the spectrum - delicate lobster inside tender pasta, then a wallop of sumptuous lobster bisque and a crack of vadouvan spice. A pigeon - perfect blushing rose in the middle - is matched with a date puree, a touch of garam masala and a glorious, glossy game sauce. Corrigan’s pommes anna are a wonderful example of how the restaurant elevates age-old flavours; these stunning, crispy little monoliths to the potato gods are dusted in cider vinegar powder, but ultimately they just taste like the perfect chip.

The Paris-brest has all the potential in the world to be an overly dense end to the meal, but it’s light as a feather and rich with pistachio cream. It’s all exemplary, but this cooking doesn’t come cheap - that lobster ravioli is a whopping £27. The pigeon? £42. Still, there probably aren’t many better places around here to spend your money, and you get some tasty snacks and petit fours thrown into the bargain. The friendly service lives up to the billing too with smart wine pairings that delve into Corrigan’s extensive cellars.

About

Richard Corrigan is synonymous with friendly service and comforting, modern British cooking in the capital. Corrigan's Mayfair is his eponymous restaurant in glitzy Mayfair, alongside Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill in Piccadilly and Daffodil Mulligan in Old Street. 

Whilst Bentley's is famous for the thousands of oysters shucked and served on its premises every day, Corrigan's has a reputation as one of the finest game restaurants in the capital. Broadly speaking, Corrigan's is a celebration of seasonal British and Irish produce, but the restaurant is particularly proud to showcase game from across the British Isles, 'coastal and wild, furred and feathered,' as they say. The Glorious Twelfth (the name given to the start of the grouse hunting season) is an auspicious date in the Corrigan's calendar for that very reason, and the restaurant remains busy throughout the hunting season and beyond. 

Bookended by snacks and petit fours, the menu is packed with dishes that showcase classic French techniques and modern British flavour combinations with interesting twists. A salad of lobster is livened with taramasalata and yuzu, and a foie gras bavarois comes with gingerbread and pear. Mains include the likes of Hampshire fallow deer with cocoa, fig and crapaudine beetroot, and wild Shetland halibut with chervil root, autumn truffle and cavolo nero. If you still have room for dessert, try the apple tarte fine with hazelnut and vanilla ice cream, or a signature Corrigan's Paris-brest.

Corrigan's sommelier team hand-picks wine recommendations every season, but if you want to delve into the wine list you'll find an extensive collection by the glass and bottle from all over the world. Guests can also head to Dickie's Bar by the restaurant entrance for a cocktail whilst they wait for their table.

Fantastic front of house service, excellent sommelier which good recommendations. Nice ambiance, mix of business, couples, families and friends. Very relaxed. Good portion sizes. Would be nice if bread was complementary. Food portions - generous protein elements. Our dishes benefited from additional sides. Would dine here again.

Wonderful dining experience in the library to celebrate leaving work. Great service and menu, with the pleasure of interacting with the chef, plus Richard Corrigan making a colourful entrance. Could not tell the difference between the gluten free food and that for those without allergies.
