Fine din­ing Fal­con takes off

Hertfordshire Life - - GOURMET LIFE -

Bunt­ing­ford gains a new 28-cover fine­din­ing res­tau­rant this month (Oc­to­ber) with the open­ing of the Fal­con. Set in a Grade II listed build­ing for­merly hous­ing the Bunt­ing­ford Kitchen, it is the dream­child of chef Kieren Stein­born-Busse, from Berk­shire, and his wife Natasha, who grew up in Harpen­den.

Kieren (right), who trained un­der Marco Pierre White and Alain Du­casse, says the res­tau­rant will re­flect his love of Bri­tish com­fort food and rus­tic recipes based around sea­sonal, lo­cal pro­duce.

‘We want to pro­vide a great lo­cal din­ing des­ti­na­tion where peo­ple can in­ter­act, dine, drink and re­lax’, said Kieren. ‘We strongly be­lieve the great­est plea­sure in life is great food.’

The Fal­con will be open for lunch and din­ner from Thurs­day to Satur­day and on Sun­day for an ex­tended lunch ser­vice. The re­stored build­ing also fea­tures two pri­vate din­ing rooms seat­ing eight to 10.

Se­lec­tions from the menu in­clude roast and con­fit Gress­ing­ham duck with dill glazed car­rots; and cured Var salmon, salmon ril­lettes, pick­led cu­cum­ber and chervil and melba toast.
