Apricity – Mayfair

One of the best restaurants I’ve been to this year 🙌🏼

From Tredwells to All’s Well, I’ve been a big fan of @chef_chantelle for a while so I was excited to finally make it down to her latest venture: @apricityrestaurant, which was everything I’d hoped it would be ☺️

Nestled away on an expensive looking road, paces away from hectic Bond Street, the shabby-chic restaurant is a haven of laid-back serenity.

Here’s what we ate:

🌱Tempura courgette flower, radish, pea ajo blanco

🥗 Red butterhead lettuce salad, miso, aioli, cashews & crispy kale

🌱Miso roasted cabbage, smoked bean emulsion & pickled kale

🍆Aubergine, roast almond butter, zhoug, dukkah cracker

🌽 Charred corn, roasted courgette, pink flamingo peas, hazelnuts, tofu purée

🍄 Oyster & black pearl mushrooms, herb relish, flinders wheat, XO sauce

🥔 Pink Fir potatoes, brown butter, smoked emulsion

🍨Fig leaf oat crème, w/ elderflower & gin granita
🍨 Strawberry, cashew cream, “goldencomb” w/ raspberry granita

🏆 Faves: The courgette flower, mushroom dish & strawberry dessert
💰Starters: £11-£14, Mains: £26-£31, Desserts: £12. It’s worth noting that the pricing seems higher as it includes service charge so the team get a more secure salary
💭 I just LOVED this place. Staff were friendly & attentive, the food was beautiful – could eat those crispy mushrooms forever. The sustainability aspect is mega impressive, the decor is perfection – the whole experience just felt special
