MAY­FAIR’S ONE-MICHE­LIN STAR ‘THE SQUARE’ – A SYM­PHONY OF FLAVOURS

World Travel Magazine - - Just In -

A tale of Chef Clé­ment Leroy and beau­ti­fully plated works of art

Nes­tled within art gal­leries in Lon­don’s May­fair neigh­bour­hood, The Square el­e­vates haute cui­sine to the level of art in a tan­ta­lis­ing ad­ven­tur­ous as­sault on the senses and ex­plo­ration of the pal­ette. Mar­lon Abela took the helm of Lon­don’s culi­nary land­mark in 2016 re­cruit­ing chef Clé­ment Leroy and paint­ing a new can­vas with reimag­ined in­te­ri­ors by Vir­gile + Part­ners with an en­er­getic, ur­ban and con­tem­po­rary at­ti­tude. The min­i­mal­ist ar­chi­tec­ture en­hances the epi­curean ex­pe­ri­ence, ex­hibit­ing work from Kevin Beasley and sets the stage for food to take cen­tre stage.

Beau­ti­fully plated works of art will find you en­joy­ing a sur­pris­ing sym­phony of flavours from pump­kin puree amuse with chest­nut; to colourful sea urchins from the South West of France; to cured Cor­nish mack­erel served with pink radish, and chive; to comte ag­nolotti, Ja­pa­nese ar­ti­choke, baby turnip, and pars­ley root to a deca­dent square choco­late desert. Temp­ta­tions abound. They take pride in the de­tail right down to the way they gin­gerly press English rose­mary into their del­i­cately whipped goat’s milk but­ter. Tal­ented head pas­try chef Aya Leroy tops off your din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with del­i­ca­cies like chest­nut and red cur­rant cas­sis, lemon pra­line and choco­late. squar­erestau­rant.com
