‘Relaxed excellence’ is Tredwells’ calling card, and it’s certainly the most casual of his trio of acclaimed chef and restaurateur (and MasterChef judge) Marcus Wareing’s London dining rooms. Named after an Agatha Christie character, the three-floor West End restaurant’s menu is anchored by British ingredients and French technique, but travels across continents.
What to order The slow-cooked salmon with kimchee pancake, daikon and black sesame or the pea tortellini with soya ricotta and Kalamata olives.
Pipsqueak tip The kitchen goes out of its way to excite young palates, and the junior menu is a wholesome carte: ‘magnificent meatballs’ with tomato sauce, ‘green garden’ burger or ‘cheery chicken lollipops’ with sweet potato, peas and broccoli at the time of writing. Instead of a carton of super-sweet juice, children can wash down their food with a pineapple mojito or ‘The Funky Beet!’ made with beetroot, apple and rhubarb.
