Michelin Guide 2010 awarded 2 stars to The Ledbury, located in Notting hill. Most recently seen on Masterchef, where the semi finalists had a tough job maintaining the high standards of The Ledbury.
Led by extraordinary Australian Chef Brett Graham, The Ledbury is simply THE London restaurant right now. The Ledbury gained its first Michelin star in its first year and has found higher standards of Fine Dining since.
Chef Brett Graham
The 2 star award represents Brett Graham`s flair and skill and the ability to create dishes which would appear to have no equal – The man has a dedicated and inspiring attention to detail, The chef is a genius.
We had the set lunch menu, 2 course for only £27.50, which is very agreeable for a restaurant held in such high regard.
To start, I had the Duck egg wrapped in Kataifi with Jerusalem artichokes, cepes and truffle. My Fiancee went for the Celeriac baked in ash with wood sorrel, hazlenuts and a kromeski of wild boar (a kromeski is like a small croquette filled with minced meat). We tried each other`s dishes. I had to retry the boar again, just to be sure.
I am sure, positive even, the two starters were the very best I have had this year. The Boar Kromeski being a savoury delight, a perfect way to start this best Fine dining experience.
For mains, we again sampled each other`s choices. The Poulet noir was complimented lovely by the chestnut puree. The fillet of Brill was wonderfully spicy and cooked to absolute perfection.
The Ledbury has a comfortable ambience that oozes style and quality. The service is welcoming and of a professionality that matches the food.
Is this the most perfect London restaurant?
Based on my lunch time experience, I cannot wait to return. I have to come back for the evening taster menu. In my opinion, If you wish to dine at 2 star Michelin restaurants london has no better option.
The food is of a level most deserving of The Ledbury`s 2 Michelin stars. The restaurant is friendly and the whole experience befittingly delightful.
