Somewhere you should eat… Kitchen Joël Antunès at Embassy Mayfair



The Embassy Club hasn’t exactly developed the most flattering reputation over the years; think C-listers, “models”, iffy door staff and any other big pimping-types “spendin’ cheese” and that pretty much sums it up on a good night. But following a 7-month makeover, the Mayfair locale’s done a 360 and now offers a French restaurant which exudes nothing less than sophistication and class.

With elegant and bright interiors that clearly boasts of a Gallic influence and an award-winning, Michelin-starred chef Joel Atunes at the helm,  Kitchen’s Provençal menu ticks off all the French standards with a twist here or there, so starters like the deliciously decadent chicken parfait comes with a generous serving of baby cornichons, and an equally perfect Pommes Anne is matched with the fluffiest, melting cod and a side of red wine sauce. It was also hard to resist the ‘Le Kit Kat‘ for dessert – another quirky addition on offer – which is a extremely decadent caramel, served with tonka bean ice-cream. All this culinary goodness comes at a steepish price, of course (£7-£14 for starters,  £17-£29 for mains,  £7-£10 for desserts, and let’s not get started on the wine list…), but if you’re in the mood to splurge on a remarkable French experience, this looks like the spot.
