Harden's says

Chantelle Nicholson, former chef-owner Tredwells (RIP), opened her new hyper-seasonal, sustainable restaurant in April 2022 in Mayfair. There's be a tasting menu focused solely on vegetables as well as a more conventional meat and fish-focused offering.

Chantelle Nicholson’s Mayfair yearling has “a menu balance that’s the opposite way around to most restaurants, with an emphasis on vegetarian/vegan cooking, but also with a few meat/fish options”. Although some more critical reviewers “were expecting more after reading the glowing reviews”, even they said it was “perfectly good”. And most feedback this year was uniformly positive, hailing it as an unqualified “winner”: “there was no need to order any meat or fish: the vegetarian and vegan dishes we had were spectacular!”.

Former Tredwells chef, Chantelle Nicholson, has opened this Mayfair newcomer in April 2022, with a hyper-seasonal, low-waste ethos and prettily distressed, minimal décor. Initial reports in our diners’ survey are mixed. All feedback suggests the (vegetable-heavy) menu “sounds so interesting”, but what are “exceptional plant-based dishes” to some tastes arrive with “not a lot of flair or flavour” to others. (And press reviewers are also split: what is to The Guardian’s Grace Dent “too good and truly delicious” to The Evening Standard’s Jimi Famurewa “occasionally feels like it loses sight of fun and basic diner enjoyment”).

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"I've eaten here twice and found the vegetarian food divine. I greatly enjoyed the food and am surprised by the low ratings. Uniquea and inventive takes on veg-forward food."
