To celebrate game season this year, Jérôme Ponchelle, head chef at The Capital Restaurant in Knightsbridge, has created a special, six course tasting menu featuring game based dishes. The menu will be available for lunch and dinner Monday – Sunday and is priced at £70 per person.
Dishes on the game menu include Game, pistachio and foie gras terrine, Cumberland sauce, toasted sourdough bread and Medallion of Fallow deer venison, red wine poached pear, honey glazed baby carrot and parsnips.
Alongside the tasting menu, the à la carte will feature individual game dishes throughout the season, such as salmi of pheasant, Madeira sauce, morel and Champagne cream and Breast of Teal, wild mushroom, artichoke and quail egg. The à la carte maintains favourites and signature dishes including Ravioli of duck foie gras (£21) and Lobster, crab and truffle omelette (£24). There is also a set lunch menu (from £24.50).
The restaurant seats 34 and has high ceilings and large windows in a classic setting, with a focus on attention to detail. The bar has become known for its extensive whisky collection and bar manger Cesar da Silva stocks over 60 different kinds.
