Review on The Five Fields

Chef patron Taylor Bonnyman, formerly of two Michelin-starred Corton in Tribeca, Lower Manhattan has opened his first UK restaurant called The Five Fields in Chelsea, a short walk from Sloane Square. Named after the area of Chelsea and Belgravia known as The Five Fields in the 18th century, the interior has been designed by Robert Angell, taking inspiration from the local area's association with flora. It looks eminently chic, decked out in a palette of pale green, ochre and ivory, with three tiled walls featuring a cocoa plant motif acknowledging Sir Hans Sloane's introduction of drinking chocolate to Britain.

Taylor Bonnyman has gathered a formidable team round him, Head Chef is Marguerite Keogh who honed her culinary skills with Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley, Pastry Chef is Chris Underwood, who formerly graced the kitchen of Tom Aikens and in charge of front of house is Matthew Widdowson who was Bar Manager at the Bluebird. It is certainly paying dividends as the restaurant picked up a Michelin star in the 2017 edition of the Guide.

The food hits the button with its vibrant modern flavours, employing high quality seasonal ingredients and artisanal produce. Many are sourced from their own herb and vegetable garden in East Sussex, where they have a collection of more than a hundred herbs, some very rare, overseen by gardener Heather Young, formerly of Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons.

Kick off with a starter of foie gras, Shemiji mushrooms and Rainbow carrots before a main course of Cornish turbot, roasted with aubergine, green olive and courgette or Berkshire venison, Muntjac deer, Sussex beetroot, blackberry and smoked ricotta. Prettily displayed desserts offer an enticing mix of flavours with garden pea and coconut, pea cassonade, with chocolate soil and coconut sorbet or rhubarb and custard, with saffron custard and salted milk crumble.

There is a first floor private dining room called The Rocque Room, named after the 18th century cartographer whose maps of London refer to this area as The Five Fields, and works displayed by Joan Miro and Leon Morrocco.

The Five Fields is also featured in: Michelin Guide, Hardens, AA Guide
