Headed to London next week for Queenly festivities and having a good think about what to do while we are there.
Came across Bill Granger’s restaurant while browsing Conde Nast’s Traveller’s list of 2012 Innovation & Design Winners and think we have to try it!
The restaurant looks casual, but with a bit of designer’s edge to it, serving meals all day in the charming (if ever increasingly posh) neighborhood of Notting Hill.
I love restaurants that have atmosphere as skillfully thought through out as the food. Granger & Co.’s transition from a bright and airy breakfast room to a dimmer, more intimate dinner space is delightful.
Start it all off with a cocktail and some spiced cashews while you try to decide on the menu. (I’m going for “the bramble”, a mixture of gin, lemon and blackberry liqueur.)
The menu has an Australian-Asian twist to it and several dishes include lime and avocado (two ingredients of obsession). All of the below sound delicious:
– Crisp salmon salad with coconut caramel dressing
– Crisp duck with plum sauce & clementines
– Pure beef burger with beetroot, tomato relish & our courgette pickles (you can add gruyere or gorgonzola dolce)
Take a look at the menu here.
If you don’t have room for a full dessert, you can order some peanut brittle which is simply the sweetest touch to end on.
