The Greenhouse Restaurant Review

: You reach the restaurant through a delightful plant-filled courtyard and step into a pretty room with green and brown décor that echoes the outside. Staff, too, live up to the reputation. And the food? It’s topnotch with seasonal ingredients used with skill by the chef, Arnaud Bignon. Start with crab with mint jelly, cauliflower and tart Granny Smith apples or tandoori-cooked Scottish scallop with native asparagus, ginger and lemon. Bignon introduced many more Asian flavors, as in lamb with red pepper Romero, miso, spring onion and hummus or sea bass that comes with yuzu, polenta and herbs. The £6 supplement for the cheese board on the lunch menu is worth every penny (and the lunch menu is one of London’s bargains). But don’t bypass the desserts, which might include pineapple with pine nuts, lavender and lemon. The wine list is overseen by Marc Piquet, and is long and powerful with many rare wines at very fair prices and a good selection at the lower end, around £35 to £40. Set 2-course lunch £35, 3 courses £40. Set meal 2 courses £85, 3 courses £95, 6-course Tasting menu £110.
