Recently rebranded from its previous mantle of L'Amore, One Warwick Park's SEVENTEEN restaurant in Chapel Place boasts a mouth-watering menu of British dishes, which are turned on their heads through ?avours and in?uences from around the world, using modern cooking techniques, seasonality and presentation.
It's the slow-cooked beef blade that catches my eye, which comes complete with creamed potato, spinach and a red wine jus (£18.25). But first, my starter of seared king scallops with pea puree, bacon jam and apple (£10.50) is expertly served and tastes even better, the tender meat positively melting in the mouth from the very first bite. Across the table, my guest's spiced lamb samosa with minted yoghurt (£7.25) looks equally appetising, the spiciness of the meat perfectly offset by the yoghurt's cool, refreshing hit.
My main is deliciously juicy and wonderfully tender, the meat every bit as succulent as the scallops before. As for my guest, she's busy tucking into her Scottish salmon darne with saffron potatoes, French-style peas and Hollandaise sauce (£17.25).
For our ?nal course, we satisfy our sweet teeth in suitably decadent style. My selection of white and dark chocolate fudge (£5.50) goes exceptionally well with a decaf Americano - just in case I hadn't imbibed enough caffeine with my earlier cocktail choice already. Saying that, I feel a twinge of food envy at the sight of my guest's creme brulee (£6.50), which goes down a treat to ?nish things off.
SEVENTEEN's dishes are impeccably presented and full of ?avour, and there's a comfortable ambience to the place; a cosy, home-from-home appeal that makes you feel as if you could easily take up an inde?nite residence, wandering from your suite only to join your fellow diners, before retreating back into a cocoon of comfort once more.
