Second helpings: More old places with new faces
The Savoy Grill Strand, London WC2 - Pharmacy 150 Notting Hill Gate, London W11 - The Greyhound at Stockbridge 31 High Street, Stockbridge, Hampshire
Sunday 16 March 2003
The Savoy Grill Strand, London WC2, tel: 020 7420 2066 The newly restored Savoy Grill is due to open next month under the guidance of chef/patron, Marcus Wareing of Petrus, accompanied by tut-tutting of horrified traditionalists. Wareing, who once trained under the Savoy's Anton Edelman promises to retain Grill classics but introduce more contemporary flavours, while Barbara Barry's revamp promises to do exactly the same. So you can stop with the tut-tutting.
Pharmacy 150 Notting Hill Gate, London W11, tel: 020 7221 2442 Former Michelin-starred chef Hywel Jones seems to be just what the doctor ordered for Damien Hirst's pharmaceutically inspired restaurant. His refined raviolo of Scottish lobster, roast loin of Oisin venison and foie gras three ways are prescribed dining for Notting Hill toffs and celebs upstairs, while the crowds gather in the boothy bar to take their oral medication before, during and after food.
The Greyhound at Stockbridge 31 High Street, Stockbridge, Hampshire, tel: 01264 810 833 Two years ago, wine professional Barry Skarin bought this converted 18th-century pub in the heart of serious fly-fishing territory. His latest catch is chef Darron Bunn who has cooked at the Criterion, the Oak Room, Incognico and Richard Neat. What with the rich daube of venison, the millefeuille of rabbit and Bayonne ham and the embarrassment-of-riches wine list, it's hooking more than just the local anglers.
