Review on Amazonico
Amazonico is a fascinating newcomer occupying a plum position on Berkeley Square in the heart of Mayfair. This is the first London venture from Chef Sandro Silva and his wife Marta Seco, who have already established a sibling restaurant in Madrid that attracts both celebrities and Spanish politicians, as well as operating restaurant group El Paraguas.
Housed in the former Allied Irish Bank, the 13,000 sq ft space has undergone a glitzy makeover by renowned interior design studio Lαzaro Rosa-Violan, featuring a lush Amazon rainforest inspired dιcor. The no-expense design makes the most of natural and organic materials, with masses of jungle-like greenery hanging from the ceiling and model sized peacocks standing on the beautiful curved bar.
Complete with a sushi counter and a glass fronted kitchen, the Executive Chef leading the brigade is Vito Reyes, who previously worked at acclaimed Peruvian restaurant Ceviche. Fusing Asian, Mediterranean and Brazilian cuisine, guests have an array of choice when it comes to choosing from the menu. There's Mexican style stone bass ceviche with avocado cream and jalapeρo or maybe Ancas de Rana, fried frog legs with spiced mango dressing. Meat lovers will enjoy the red black and white whole grain rice, grilled duck and fried egg cooked in the wok or elsewhere there's Picanha Rodizio, Brazilian style grilled rump steak. As for dessert, check out the coconut flan, tonka bean caramel and mandarνn jam or the mango and avocado pavlova, lime Chantilly and spiced juice.
Still not ready to head home, then stop off at the jungle jazz club, where you will be entertained with live performances each night whilst sipping creative cocktails.
