Frescobaldi London: Mayfair’s Favourite Hidden Gem

Frescobaldi London: Mayfair’s Favourite Hidden Gem

No lunch conversation with my friends about London’s best restaurants goes without mentioning Frescobaldi. Somehow, Chiltern regular that I am, I’d never dined there (much to the disappointment of my friends, who always exclaimed at this: “but you haaave to!”.

So as soon as I arrived in London from Dubai, Frescobaldi was on my mind. Luckily, I only had to wait a day before I got the time to visit, with my fellow truffle-loving friend Elizabeth, who is a fan of their great food 😉

We’d booked the restaurant for lunch, so I had the morning to explore the city.

My exact outfit pieces aren’t available online as I got them from a range of countries but I’ve found some items for you guys that are as similar as they get to the ones I’m wearing in these pictures 😉

Luckily, it didn’t take long for lunchtime to come, and soon enough we were standing at the receptionists’ desk waiting to be seated.

First, we ordered tea, and it came in pretty cups which complimented the whole ‘classic’ look of Frescobaldi.

The bread basket arrived, and it took a whole lot of restraint not to finish it even before our starters had arrived.

For starters, I’d gone with the Red prawn tartar with green apple, which was really interesting because it was my first time trying tartar made with prawns. Normally I go for the veal one (with truffles- you know me..). Overall it’s a refreshing take on a classic.

Elizabeth on the other hand had chosen the Crab cake with avocado, lemon dressing and pink pepper, which was beautifully presented on its pretty plate. Another refreshing starter.

If you’re a lover of carbs and truffles, you are going to go mad here. Even the fries have carbs.

And the meat- I’d gone with the Beef fillet with roasted Jerusalem artichoke, spinach and Nipozzano sauce- is divine too, tender and light, just as it should be. This is one of those restaurants where you leave feeling good… and eager for more 😉
