This weekend (10 February) D&D’s French restaurant in the heart of Marylebone will mark its 21st anniversary by re-opening with a new look and a new menu from chef-patron Igor Tymchyshyn. Orrery has always made “stylish”use of a slightly “odd” space, and its roof terrace is a favourite among our reporters when the warm weather arrives.
The furniture, artwork and textiles take inspiration from the south of France with details of lavender panelling and handmade terracotta clay pots. The dining room will have muted tones of grey, blue and lilac throughout. The space is brightened by floor to ceiling arched windows, framing the St Marylebone Church courtyard.
The menu features new dishes of fillet steak tartare with a sourdough and truffle dressing and a signature Kentish lamb wellington with salsify and garlic, for two to share. Original favourites remain, including: Tournedos Rossini with celeriac and sauce périgordine and Igor’s Jerusalem artichoke risotto. Orrery’s celebrated cheese trolley is on offer after dinner, and will showcase over thirty artisan cheeses all curated by the restaurant’s very own ‘frommelier’, and for those keen to learn more, the restaurant will host regular cheese and wine evenings throughout the year.
