On a recent business trip to London I was delighted to have dinner at 45 Jermyn St a sophisticated dining venue in the heart of Mayfair on legendary Jermyn Street.
45 Jermyn St is a glamourous old-style but modern restaurant with red leather banquettes, brass railings and a marble bar with the most comfortable red leather chairs. It is elegant but easy at the same time.
The service is impeccable, and the menu is tantalizing! There is table side service that is traditional but with a fun flair. I started with a mixed salad that was so delicious like it had just been plucked from the garden.
Then for my main course I had the lobster pasta that was prepared at my table with a sherry reduction that was heavenly. Lobster can be heavy, but this pasta dish was light, fresh and aromatic. The ingredients are seasonal and super fresh, so you enjoy every bite.
45 Jermyn St has an extensive wine and champagne list and two bartenders that mix the best cocktails. Mostafa created an after-dinner drink that was out of this world using eggnog as a base. The rose champagne was chilled to perfection.
In this age of globalization it is truly refreshing to dine at a restaurant that has kept their standards so high but with a glam and eclectic modern twist!
