Review on 104 Restaurant
Taking over the premises formerly occupied by Great British Menu finalist Marianne Lumb, 104 Restaurant is located on the corner of Chepstow Road and St Stephen's Mews in the largely residential area of Notting Hill, a short walk from Royal Oak tube. It's the first restaurant from chef Richard Wilkins, whose pedigree spans some of the world's most celebrated Michelin starred restaurants including Maison Pic in France, The Waterside Inn and Pétrus by Gordon Ramsay.
Tagged as the smallest fine dining restaurant in London, this bijou of a venue offers an intimate experience seating just twelve guests. Tables are laid with crisp white linen set against pale pink chairs on a modern chevron wood floor. Vintage wall lights provided soft lighting, and the curtains covering the lower part of the windows enhance the cosy ambience.
Richard's cooking is built around fresh seasonal ingredients bringing a touch of class and invention to the kitchen. The menu changes regularly but you can expect the likes of slow cooked Clarence Court hens egg and Australian black truffle to kick-start proceedings, before Rhug estate cannon of lamb, Jersey royals, soubise, grelot onion and jus gras or from the sea Cornish turbot, spinach and Champagne sauce. To conclude there are tempting desserts like chocolate moelleux, hazelnut praline and passion fruit sorbet, plus an interesting selection of French cheeses served with rye crackers and wine jelly.
A concise wine list roams the globe offering something for everyone in terms of both taste and budget, and there's also options available by the half bottle and glass.
