Corrigan's Mayfair Restaurant Review: Richard Corrigan expanded from his charming Lindsay House to revitalize Bentley’s just off Piccadilly. Then in the way of empire builders, he took over what was Chez Nico in days long gone. Corrigan has a deep understanding of the robust nature of British game, of the freshest fish and seasonal vegetables. On the set menu you’ll get the likes of warm pig's head terrine with pickled watermelon, and braised lamb Boulangère with sweetbreads and Jerusalem artichokes. Go à la carte and choose from Cornish cod with caramelized cauliflower and truffled leeks, roast saddle of rabbit with sweet onion and roasted salsify, wild duck or Dartmoor venison. Vegetables are properly cooked; try chips in goose fat or buttered curly kale for an object lesson. Save room for chocolate and caramel tart, or black treacle and ginger cake. The wine list is a delight, beautifully put together with many selections by the glass or carafe with a non-greedy mark-up and an emphasis on small producers of biodynamic wines, and the menu is a good read. Opulent and mouth-filling? Mainly fresh, youthful, juicy reds? It makes you want to try them all. Weekday lunch menu at £35 for 2 courses, £39 for 3; 6-course Tasting menu £75.
