Ormer Mayfair by Sofian is is the first solo project by young chef, Sofian Msetfi.
Sofian has created three tasting menus – five-courses (£50 lunch only) plus seven (£70) and nine-courses (£90), including vegetarian options.
The Menus reflect Sofian’s Michelin-starred training (Adare Manor, The Hand and Flowers, Midsummer House), devotion to his craft, uncompromising standards and passion for British ingredients.
Signature dishes include warm Ibérico ham with Parmesan, Bramley apple and nasturtium; English asparagus, morels and Vin Jaune; poached native lobster, Isle of Wight tomatoes, pine nuts and basil; roast rack of Dorset lamb, confit of lamb breast, cucumber and dill; and Abinao and tapioca tart with Pedro Ximénez sherry and salted milk sorbet.
Vegetarian tasting plates include pearl barley risotto with garlic, Parmesan and puffed barley; and a shallot tarte fine with confit garlic, chicory and sherry butter sauce.
A wine pairing menu is also available with bins chosen to complement Sofian’s food by Sommelier Zareh Mesrobyan. Diners can finish their tasting experience by selecting a plate of British cheeses from the new dedicated Trolley.
The quintessentially British, 1930’s-inspired restaurant, designed by Tony Filmer now boasts its own private entrance on Clarges Street.
The dining room is lined with aged oak wood panelling, Carrara and Nero Marquina geometrical, monochrome marble floors and forest green velvet banquettes threaded with gold and British racing green.
From hidden alcoves behind bronze and cast glass screens to long banquettes, tables are discreetly distanced for comfort whilst those in search of complete privacy can book one of the three private dining rooms, seating from six to 22, or take the affectionately known ‘naughty table’ concealed behind a heavy red velvet curtain.
Cocktails come from the adjoining Manetta’s bar. The restaurant is open for dinner only on Wednesday and lunch and dinner Thursday to Saturday.
