The Cocochine serves the rarest of things, an a la carte menu in an upmarket restaurant. It features the cooking of Larry Jayasekara, drawing on his classical culinary training and featuring much higher quality ingredients than are generally seen in London kitchens. Set in a Mayfair townhouse, the cooking is high class the wine list is unusually kindly in its markups. This looks set to be one of the best openings of the year.

Ormer Mayfair is a one-star Michelin restaurant in the basement of the Flemings Hotel. It delivered another very enjoyable meal at this most recent visit, the star dish being a cured mackerel dish with spiced nage. It is a very relaxed environment with very good service and has an appealing menu.
