Simon Radley at The Chester GrosvenorModern British
This sumptuous restaurant has held a Michelin star since 1990 thanks to the sparkling imagination of head chef, Simon Radley. A la carte, tasting and vegetarian menus are available with matched wines from an internationally acclaimed cellar of more than 1000 bins, which has secured an AA Notable Wine List Award. Radley doesn’t fear flavour and the menu is littered with the likes of sweet and sour mackerel, black garlic scallops, barbecue sweetbread and punchy desserts featuring liquorice or Calvados toffee. Experiential collages pay homage to various parts of the world, often returning to the region as in menu standards like ‘Edge’s Rare Breed’ (charred beef sirloin, cured cheek and smoked onion pickles) or Two Hens, comprised of buttery Black Leg chicken and native lobster, finished off with Perigord truffle. Dessert could include a ‘Piña Colada’ themed coconut blancmange with elements of golden pineapple or a Catalan-inspired combination of preserved tomato, fruit candy and goat’s curd. Heaven for the armchair tourist and ideal for that milestone birthday.
