Review on Outlaw's at The Capital
David Levin created The Capital in Knightsbridge more than 40 years ago as the model of a 'grand hotel in miniature.' It stands discreetly in a side street, just a stone's throw from the celebrity hubbub of Harrods and Harvey Nichols, making it one of the most sought-after, privately run hotels in the metropolis.
At the heart of the hotel is its auspicious restaurant that over the years has seen a number of illustrious chefs such as Gary Rhodes, Eric Chavot and more recently, Jérôme Ponchelle come and go. It is now home to Michelin starred chef Nathan Outlaw and the tiny dining room has undergone a refurbishment decked out in tones of cream and brown, with banquette seating set against polished wood tables, to reflect a more relaxed dining approach.
The menu at Outlaw's Seafood and Grill will copy the ethos of his Cornwall restaurant, the more casual of his two restaurants there, with an emphasis on simply prepared ecologically sound seafood, predominantly caught around the Cornish coast, as well as sustainable catches from other UK locations.
Amongst the starters you could opt for toasted scallops with Porthilly crispy oyster, oyster sauce and cucumber or maybe Cornish crab on toast, curry, fennel and apple. Mains follow in a similar vein with grilled Dover sole 'On the Bone', parsley, lemon and garlic dressing or for the carnivores amongst you there's chargrilled 10oz double venison chop, ham hock, squash and hazelnuts. Desserts are an enticing mix of flavours with dark chocolate sponge, lime curd and peanut ice cream or chargrilled pineapple, cream cheese ice cream and butterscotch sauce.
