Review on Thirty Six by Nigel Mendham at Dukes Hotel
Thirty six is Nigel Mendham's new restaurant set in the distinguished Duke's hotel which is located in a quiet courtyard in St James's. The name was chosen for a number of reasons, one because the number of the entrance is 36, as well as being the number that represents good luck in Chinese astrology and lastly because of its association with the 'Solar Square' of ancient Western tradition, in which it represents the sun, and warmth. The elegant dining room designed by Shaun Clarkson is decked out in pale colours, with well-laid tables and contrasting orange chairs giving a warmth to the venue.
Nigel Mendham comes with excellent credentials from his previous restaurant The Samling in Windermere, where he achieved a Michelin star in 2010. He uses the best of British produce in a way that results in refined modern British dishes with a classical twist. Open the slate with quail, terrine forestiere braised leg and quail jus and then follow on with a main course of lemon sole with roasted langoustine, carrot puree and hazelnut crumb. Desserts bring on board delights such as carrot cake, liquid carrot, iced cream cheese and walnuts or maybe raspberry vanilla donuts paired with raspberry semifreddo.
