Review on Scully
Scully the namesake restaurant of former NOPI Head Chef is the first solo project from Ramael Scully. Located a short walk from London theatres and landmark Trafalgar Square, it's set in the new St. James's Market development. The dining room with a dedicated bar is dominated by the open kitchen, where guests can perch by the marble-topped counter and watch all the action of the chefs at work. Opposite there's a large communal table, as well as smaller tables with banquette seating. An illuminated wall features a colourful display of shelves containing pickles, fermented fruit and vegetables, which are in constant use for preparation of the dishes.
Given his diverse parentage, Scully was born in Malaysia and raised in Australia with a mother of Chinese and Indian descent, and an Irish Balinese father, together with his culinary experience throughout the globe, guests can expect vibrant dishes bursting with flavour using unusual combinations of ingredients. Carefully sourced produce with an emphasis on sustainability results in small plates like arepa, eggplant sambal, bergamot labneh or radicchio, maple shiitake, pear and pine nut. Follow on with octopus, salt baked avocado and black garlic or from the land beef short-rib pastrami, horseradish and pistachio, before bringing the curtain down with caramelised white chocolate, grapefruit and pink peppercorn.
The natural wine list has been curated by Newcomer Wines and there's a nice selection of signature cocktails.
