THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nicole's Restaurant Review: Nicole Farhi's eponymous restaurant is located in the basement of her flagship Bond Street clothing store. It’s great for early breakfasts and at lunchtime, the smart ladies-who-lunch descend the stairs to sample the skillful mix of modern British-meets-Mediterranean cooking. Light starters like warm wild mushroom and herb salad with pecorino and hazelnut or tuna ceviche with citrus fruits, then lobster Caesar salad or pan-fried sea bass fit the bill; even the simple green salads are first-rate. Desserts like bakewell tart or rhubarb and ginger crumble are tempting, and they tempt the fashionable crowd who’ve held back on the main dishes. But like the clothes and home accessories upstairs, nothing on the menu is cheap.
