Review on The Alpine Restaurant

Situated on the borders of the Hertfordshire and Greater London boundary in leafy Bushey Green, The Alpine Restaurant is a family run restaurant that opened its doors in 1969. This popular long standing fixture owned by Giacomo and Marisa Harkin is spread over two floors in a 19th century Tudor building. Interiors have been updated whilst retaining its original warmth and character, tables are crisply laid set on modern wood flooring and interesting artwork is displayed on the walls.

The kitchen is headed up by Giacomo's son and partner, James Harkin, a talented chef who has plied his trade throughout Europe and London, and is a regular guest on Nick Coffers Saturday Kitchen on BBC Radio 3. Paul Paraschi who joined the restaurant from Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows, adeptly manages the amicable and professional service.

Italy rules on the menu and the kitchen creates elegant and classic dishes using the finest quality local and seasonal ingredients. Typically you might begin with salted cod fishcakes with cous cous, saffron and burnt cauliflower purée before a main course of medallions of beef with wild mushroom and Madeira gravy, potato rostii and roast parsnips or home-rolled taglierini with fresh Exmouth mussels, cherry tomatoes, basil and wild garlic. To finish expect anything from iced praline parfait with citrus salad, passion fruit and candied zests to hot chocolate pudding with caramelized bananas and pistachio ice cream. The all-Italian wine list offers diners plenty of choice with regard to both taste and budget.
