Review on The Brasserie at The Cumberland
Gary Rhodes eight year association with the Cumberland Hotel has ended and the restaurant has now been re-named W1 Brasserie, but otherwise everything else remains the same with head chef Darryl Wilde still in charge of the kitchen. The restaurant caters for an international crowd in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
The Brasserie works to a broadly European repertoire, with plenty of input from Britain along the way. Typical starters on the menu are Coquille St. Jacques, hand dived scallop, mushrooms, white wine cream sauce glazed with cheese and deep fried salt and pepper squid with a fresh chilli dipping sauce or a risotto of saffron, chorizo sausage and diced fried red pepper.
Main courses are equally wide ranging, taking in everything from slow cooked belly of lamb, seasonal vegetables, saffron potatoes with a lamb and tarragon broth to home tea smoked salmon served on smoked salmon carbonara tagliatelle. Traditional grills are also on offer and the choice of desserts could embrace chocolate and coffee pot with salted caramel, milk foam, chocolate sorbet and coffee biscotti or raspberry soufflé, raspberry sorbet and sauce. Carefully selected wines provide the finishing touch.
