To celebrate springtime and the delicious flavours this season brings to the table, Hunter 486, the stylish restaurant located within five-star hotel The Arch London, has created a glorious spring menu.
Developed by Head Chef Gary Durrant, the new menu is inspired by ‘Best of British’ recipes using only the freshest seasonal ingredients such as Lamb, Dorset crab, Jersey Royals, Asparagus, Peas and Watercress.
Hunter 486’s delicious new spring dishes include starters such as Asparagus and watercress soup with poached quail eggs and parmesan crisp; Dressed Dorset crab with avocado and pink grapefruit; and Crispy lamb sweetbreads with minted broad beans, radish, and caper dressing. Main courses include Asparagus and violet artichoke tart with poached Burford Brown egg and truffle hollandaise; and Roast rack of English lamb with crushed Jersey Royals, baby vegetables, and herb broth.
New dessert additions include Pineapple carpaccio, lime sorbet, passion fruit jelly; and White chocolate and blood orange crème brûlée.
The crowning glory of Hunter 486 is the use of the stone oven. As it operates at a very high heat, meat and fish are produced with astonishingly succulent results. Stone oven dishes include the Roast Norfolk Black chicken with potato gnocchi, spring vegetables, girolles, and tarragon velouté.
Every Sunday Hunter 486 serves a Sunday Roast from Noon until 10pm priced at £22.95 for two courses.
The new dishes are complemented by the restaurant’s extensive wine and Champagne list, which has 27 available by the glass, priced from £7.50.
Named after the 1950s dialling code for Marylebone, Hunter 486 has been designed with an air of nostalgic London glamour fused with contemporary touches. The restaurant features gleaming leather booths, blown glass chandeliers and statement artwork, plus an adjoining chic Salon de Champagne bar. The kitchen is delightfully open plan and airy, allowing guests to watch the skilled chefs at work amongst the gleaming selection of copper pots and pans suspended from the ceiling. Light streams through the large windows, treating guests to a charming view of the neighbourhood mews, and come the evening, the softly lit restaurant is an intimate and romantic setting for dinner and drinks.
