The Ledbury: A Bit of Sophisticated British Dining
Located in the iconic area of Notting Hill, The Ledbury has received nothing but tremendous praise for its classic twist on French cuisine in London. With both a casual but exciting restaurant vibe, the Ledbury is normally crowded with hungry guests ready to dig into the culinary masterpieces of chef Brett Graham. He began his cooking career in Australia at age 15, and has since moved up in the culinary work to win many awards, including the Josephine Pignolet Award, and the Young Chef of the Year in 2002. Since he began his run as head chef at Ledbury upon its opening in 2005, he has turned the Ledbury into a staple in London’s restaurant scene by receiving the coveted second Michelin star.
With great French dishes on their dinner menu, it’s no wonder this place is normally packed. Some of those include the appetizers of roasted quail breast with walnut milk, cepes and pears, and the flame grilled mackerel with pickled cucumber, celtic mustard and shiso. But their entrées are really the main attraction, like the roasted breast and confit leg of pigeon with red vegetables, foie gras and rhubarb, or the jowl of pork with peas, morels, with crackling and summer savoury. And if you’re not full from those delicious main meals, their dessert selection of brown sugar tart with poached grapes and ginger ice cream, or their passion fruit soufflé with ice cream will definitely fill you up.
Regardless of what you’re looking for during your next dining out adventure, the Ledbury’s comfortable atmosphere and delicious plates will definitely provide one of the most memorable dining experience you’ll have in London.
