Eating Out: Taste of things to come
Hot, happening and opening soon
Sunday 30 August 1998
l After a spell working for his pal Marco Pierre White at Les Saveurs and MPW Canary Wharf, chef Garry Hollihead is out to make his own culinary mark again. Hollihead (who won acclaim and his Michelin star in the mid- Nineties at L'Escargot) is to lead the kitchens at Morton's, The Restaurant (0171 493 7171), which opens in London's Berkeley Square on 14 September. As it is situated in the building which houses Morton's club, this will be the first time in 200 years that non-members have been allowed through the door.
l Hungry holidaymakers and surf dudes in Cornwall should check out Oceans Beach Bar and Grill (01326 250 251) which sits right next to Maenporth beach, near Falmouth. It is a new taverna-style establishment in the same building as the county's only Michelin-starred restaurant, Pennypots, and it shares the same chef, Kevin Viner. His delightful fresh fish dishes are on offer for just pounds 7.50 - something to bring a smile to everyone's face, even when the tide is low.
