The champagne flowed this month as William Drabble’s Seven Park Place celebrated ten years with a re-launch that affirms their very well earned Michelin Star and four AA Rosettes. The key concept is exceptionally high quality British seasonal produce from the very best suppliers.
Sampling a number of canapes touching upon elements of the menu, some standouts were:
While the dining concept leads with exceptional savouries, the confections and desserts were also a revelation. We were confronted with that very particular dilemma of whether to keep them all to ourselves or share to confirm they were really as good as we thought. I’ll admit my eyes rolled back in my head. I may have glimpsed the divine at some point (but then, I haven’t let myself have pudding in a while). In particular the passionfruit jelly. captured the essence of the scent, the memory, and the juice of the fruit itself. Perfectly marbled chocolate orbs filled with cream and cinnamon apples fashioned from caramel will also be the object of my cravings for some time.
The visual highlight of the relaunch is the Bar, which has been reworked in Art Deco spendor, with a wall of harmoniously vibrant oil paintings of dapper, perky individuals and furniture in an array of tasteful mineral tones.
