Review on 45 Jermyn St. - Fortnum & Mason
The grand old man of London's exclusive food emporiums, Fortnum & Mason, as been around for more than three centuries, and continues to pull in a curious mix of the great and the good, enquiring tourists fascinated by all things English, and shoppers with appetites.
Aside from foodie retail therapy, the store has its own eating-in options, with pride of place going to 45 Jermyn St, a new restaurant that launched in October 2015 on the premises formerly occupied for 60 years by the Fountain brasserie. Situated on the corner of Jermyn Street and Duke Street, the venue has been given a glamorous makeover by the acclaimed Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, featuring striking burnt orange leather banquettes, intimate booths and a swanky marble-topped bar with counter seating.
The restaurant showcases the talents of Head Chef Lee Streeton, who has cut his teeth in kitchens such as Brown's Hotel, Daphne's, Le Caprice and The Savoy. 45 Jermyn St is an all day affair kicking off with breakfast, through to lunch, dinner and late night supper. Dinner menus offer starters in the shape of octopus with braised Borlotti beans and chorizo or you could choose something from the dedicated caviar trolley that roams the dining room. Elsewhere there's main courses of Kingairloch Red Deer with sweetbreads and salsify or from the sea choose Dover sole à la meunière. To bring proceedings to a close there's a delicious selection of coupes and floats or indulge in a Grand Marnier soufflé.
