There are two things that make the two-year-old Ormer Mayfair very special – the exceptionally beautiful Art Deco inspired interior; and Michelin starred executive chef Shaun Rankin. Put them together and this is fine dining at its, er… finest. Ormer is the Jersey-based chef’s London outpost on the ground floor of the high end Flemings Hotel and with the food, he’s managed to successfully reflect what he does so well on the island. Think seasonal Jersey produce like fresh lobster, crab, oysters, hand-dived scallops, Jersey royals and handpicked shoreline foraged herbs. Think French game – Jersey is after all closer to France than Britain – and not just any but the best venison loin around served up with parsnips, chocolate tortellini, ginger, quinoa and parsnips. Think Victoria plum soufflé with cinnamon ice cream and a glass of 2014 Jurançon Moelleux Costat Darrer dessert wine. With the interior, designer company Tully Filmer have created an intimate space that is all 1920s glamour with leather banquettes, dark wooden panelling, glass tiles and bronze lighting that kind of makes you want to sit for hours and enjoy aperitifs and digestifs till the last customer leaves. On reflection, call it three things that make this place special; the wine list leaves nothing to chance either. A delight. Open Tuesday-Saturday for lunch and dinner.
