It’s been a busy few months over at 8 Mount Street as the previous Le Chabanais has since closed and re-opened with a new name, new management, new menu and fresh start.
From the moment we step onto the pavement, StyleNest know we are going to be in for a good evening. We are greeted by a friendly doorman (something which is so underrated in London these days) and enter the bustling restaurant.
Located in the heart of Mount Street, sandwiched between our homegrown designers Christopher Kane and Roksanda, 8 Mount Street is a stone’s throw from the high-fashion boutiques of Bond Street, whilst the decadent designer stores of Connaught Village are right on it’s doorstep.
Inside, 8 Mount Street sees a gleaming panel of brass which floods the floor and walls juxtaposed against crisp white table cloths and a traditional wood panelled ceiling for a contemporary glamour finish.
The striking brass and marble dominated ground floor dining room seats 90 guests alongside an intimate private dining room, seating up to eight.
With head chef Adrian Mellor leading the menu, 8 Mount Street sees a menu filled with Mediterranean dishes which effortlessly blend together for a work lunch, light dinner as well as a three-course indulgence which won’t leave you with that “over done it” feeling as you lie in bed wishing you’d ordered less.
So what’s on the menu? Beetroot and goat’s cheese salad with pistachios and orange; Burrata with tomatoes, basil and East London honey; and Carpaccio of tuna, sumac and lime. For the mains, delicate Sea Bream is accompanied by artichokes, tomato and black olives, while Italian flavours are explored in Gnocchi with cherry tomatoes, garlic, and scamorza. And to finish, Iced honey parfait, with roast figs presents the perfect balance between sweet and smoky flavours, and Pistachio and Baileys crème brûlée offers an exquisitely indulgent dessert.
