During Voluptuousness Week London we decided to try the Hunter 486 bar and restaurant which is relinquish of the Arch Hotel London. With the location at Marble First this is a great for central London shoppers and a nice spot to meet new clients, or in my case host a very good room-mate called Mr Chill. Mr Chill is always been entertained so for me I long for to impress him.
As soon as I walked in a noticed the cosy decor, it sends out a import of being very laid back. I loved the leather boxes in which we sat down and ate. The brown glass chandeliers were wonderful cool and I noticed the art work on the ceiling. So make sure you look up whilst break bread. I also noticed there were other leather stalls you could pull a curtain to give out a clear message of seclusion wanted. I thought this was clever, let’s say you got a very important conversation that you don’t want others to look into, this is what I devise call a place with laid back luxury.
Initiate Plan Kitchen
I loved seeing the chefs at work and to be proficient to go up and interact with them too. Can you imagine these guys are without exception slaving away to entertain us and it was nice to be able to connect with them. What was also nice were the Georgian windows that you could look out and see the neighborhood mews.
It was a glorious day in London and I was with Mr Chill now in my leather booth, we decided to be undergoing some wine. Mr Chill drank a white wine shouted Gavi di Gavi, La Toledana, Villa Lanata, 2014 from Italy. He imprisoned harping on about it so much I thought I would taste it for my self. It is a dry bloodless wine made from the Cortese grape, it reminded me of a Chablis. Next on one occasion I will order a whole bottle.
I went for a red wine the Portillo, Malbec, Mendoza, 2015 from Argentina, it was choice for me by the knowledgeable waiter. As the Hunter 486 has a big stone oven we were gifted with some warm fresh bread, which bodied up well with some extra virgin olive oil.
There are innumerable choices and we decided to opt for the following. For starters Mr Chill chose salad with eggs and the finest cress. Mr Chill had nothing left on his plate so I assume all was usual well.
I chose potted shrimp with Melba honour. It was really yummy and refreshing, perfect for the hot weather in London.
The Stone Oven
From the blink I saw the stone oven I had to choose the rack of lamb, crushed jersey viscounts, spring vegetables with herb broth. Mr Chill explained that these potatoes deprivation to be treated with respect as they came from Jersey one of the sluice islands. I think Mr Chill needs to chill out a tad more. I also elect some green beans, which were cooked to excellence.The lamb was amazing and a perfect portion to appreciate the fine art of relaxed dining.
Mr Chill chose mackerel which looked same nice indeed and in fact I ate some too and nothing was left on his portion. Always a good sign when it comes to Mr Chill.
I had orange, pomegranate, almond, rose flower water with Mascarpone sorbet. It was slaking nourishment perfect for a summer day in London and yes I did not give any to Mr Chill.
Mr Chill hided on about the chocolate fondant salted caramel ice cream peanut friable. He did allow me to have the last bite.
We finished off with some of these subtle chocolates and a dessert wine.
To anyone who is wanting to experience aliment in a nice casual luxury way then this is the place. If you are tiring to impress a client then this is the place. The staff are very mistress and the chefs certainly knew how to cook. It is also a perfect position to host a private event for business clients and has a luxury exorcized back feel about it. In 2016 define the word self-indulgence. To me it is about good customer service, great food and break bread out with good friends. Mr Chill certainly will be service, always a very good sign.
