May Fair Kitchen Review

Top 10 things you need to know about May Fair Kitchen:

1) Picture this: it’s a Friday night, a weekend of bliss has begun, but there’s still one final important task on your to-do list: impressing your date. Calm those nervous in the knowledge that there’s a stylish little place called May Fair Kitchen on hand to help, and it can rival any of the best restaurants in Mayfair.

2) The restaurant is situated near Green Park tube station in the elegant surrounds of the 5-star Mayfair Hotel. This is a hotel restaurant that is not only for traveling folks. You know you’re in for some fine dining when you stroll past parked Lamborghinis, and glide through impressive golden doors opened by dapper doormen who nod to greet you.

3) Once inside, you'll appreciate the suave interiors of May Fair Kitchen, with its mix of gleaming marble tables, parquet wooden floors, handsome mahogany columns, and exposed light fittings. It’s a pretty modest space, perfect for that tete-a-tete with your special guest.

4) Typically, your date is late. It sucks to be kept waiting, so do the right thing and get yourself something strong from the sexy, low-lit bar and soothe those jangling nerves. A classic like an Old Fashioned can never go out of style, but if you’re the adventurous type (which you are), the silky rum and aromatic chocolate bitters of the El Diplomat might be the tipple for you.

5) While you sip, make instant friends with the staff who warmly welcomed you. Soon you’ll be sharing stories and recommendations with Mario and Kristopher as if you’re best mates. At May Fair Kitchen you’re in good company. If you’re nice enough, you might even be given a guided tour around the restaurant with a peek into the private party function room, and the hidden cocktail bar and roof terrace decked out with fairy lights and a fireplace!

6) Your date has arrived and after a little chit chat, it's time the food. The restaurant showcases the finest in Spanish and Mexican cuisine in small plate form and embraces contemporary Mexican and Peruvian dishes too. Never quite got your head around the small plate concept? Order like you come here every day and impress impress your date with your vast knowledge. About 4-5 plates between the two of you should do the trick.

7) Many can't resist the lobster risotto from Italy. However, go rogue and order the porcini mushrooms and chilli bruschetta with toasted sourdough and garlic cream; crunchy and flavoursome with a kick. It’s a special night so go all out and get something extra special: tender 28-day aged rib-eye steak with soft gorgonzola butter. Even your waiter is nodding their approval.

8) If the Spaniard in you is crying out for something more Iberian, patatas bravas is a must. But this isn’t your average patatas bravas. It’s the crunchiest potato you’ll ever have the pleasure of munching, all accompanied with creamy garlic and coriander mayo. Every menu has a star and nothing will prepare you for the foodgasmic explosion of flavours thrilling your taste buds than the sea bass ceviche with avocado, corn, onion and lemon dressing from May Fair Kitchen Peruvian concept.

9) Round off a spectacular evening with clementine and cinnamon panna cotta, fresh thyme and a glass of dessert wine. Remove the stress out and ask your waiter what’s good!

10) Give yourself a well-earned pat on the back as you part. You've nailed it and if this doesn't earn you a second date, then nothing will. But it’s not only for dates. Got an important business client to impress? Seal the deal here over fine wine and food. How about treating Mum on her birthday? May Fair Kitchen is a place to impress. The only problem now: how do you top this?
