Following Delhi and New York, ‘India’s Best Restaurant’* landed in Mayfair at the end of last year, quickly winning acclaim for its inventive dishes. Indian Accent, London’s new summer menu, out today, showcases Chef Manish Mehrotra’s ability to redefine high-end Indian cuisine whilst keeping faithful to traditionally grounded recipes.
The vibrant new menu features an array of precisely executed and imaginative dishes, characterised by seasonal flavours and global ingredients in exciting combinations. Classic dishes are catapulted into the 21st century with must tries including a chicken malai tikka with green chilli cream, sugar snap peas and summer truffle; sea bream with asparagus and kerala coconut moilee; and burrata with fenugreek papdi and tomatoes. New heavenly desserts include the tropical ‘aamras’ - mango, cardamom and summer berries.
Whilst the spicing spot-on and the surroundings are haute, the lunch menus, belying the restaurant’s Mayfair location, are priced at an accessible £25 and £30 for two and three courses respectively.
Alternatively, reclaim your lunch hour in style with Indian Accent’s new Business Express Lunch. With a guaranteed 45-minute turnaround the restaurant takes express dining to an elevated level, allowing time-poor professionals to reclaim their lunch hour and ditch dreary al desko dining. Enjoy a choice of ghee roast lamb or paneer, piled Peking duck-style, into paper thin roomali roti pancakes with a chilled glass of wine or beer for just £19.
Come dinner, it’s a much more leisurely affair in the stylish surroundings of Indian Accent. Feel the stresses and strains of the day melt away with a suitable summery cocktail – the Pineapple Swizzle, made with blended Scotch, fresh pineapple and velvet falernum, is made for balmy evenings.
Whether opting for three or four courses or the nine-course tasting menu, paired with exceptional wines or whisky flights from a selection of over 100 rare varieties, expect a cutting edge culinary experience that seamlessly blends the avant garde with the familiar.
