Review on Petrichor Restaurant, The Cavendish

The Petrichor Restaurant is set on the first floor of the luxurious Cavendish Hotel in St James's, one of the most prestigious locations in London. The original Cavendish was once owned and run by Rosa Lewis (the infamous 'Duchess of Duke Street' and darling of Edwardian society), and this bastion of Englishness remains among London's elite hotels - thanks to its polished service, attentive staff and wide-ranging facilities.

The restaurant is in the capable hands of head chef Nitin Padwal who champions the idea of a sustainable restaurant and has made considerable improvements in this area. Menus change bimonthly according to the seasonal ingredients available from his network of high quality food suppliers. It's an overtly glamorous location, with big glass windows looking down onto the boutiques and galleries below. The menu has strong British overtones married with some influences from France and beyond. You might begin with pan-fried Scottish scallops, smoked bacon and cauliflower purée before braised Welsh lamb shank with crushed potatoes and braised leeks or salmon fillet with spinach and saffron sauce. To finish, try the trio of organic chocolate desserts or pear and almond tart with homemade brandy ice cream.

Set lunch and pre-theatre menus are outstanding value, and the wine list is a prestigious slate supplied by Bibendum.
