Restaurant description

From acclaimed restaurateur Phil Howard and holder of a prestigious Michelin star, Elystan Street in Chelsea serves seasonal, ingredient-led dishes in a relaxed yet refined setting. Rich British and European creations are joined by an impressive wine selection, as well as innovative cocktails and local beers.

The Elystan Street menu begins with the likes of roast calf’s sweetbread with truffled autumn slaw, tartare of aged beef with artichoke heart and truffle, and ravioli of langoustines with barbecue dressing. Amongst the flavour-packed mains, try breast of mallard with pumpkin and chestnuts, salt-baked white beetroot and celeriac with truffled hazelnut pesto, or the aged fillet and short rib of beef with creamed potato, bone marrow,wild mushroom and red wine.

Desserts at Elystan Street restaurant are just as inventive, and include roasted figs with goat’s milk ice cream, lemon and thyme fritters and olive oil, and smashed brownie with chocolate foam, hazelnut ice cream and vanilla Chantilly. The Elystan Street wine list covers an array of international wines, with rare bottles joined by champagnes, ports and sherries.

Elystan Street London is an 8-minute walk from South Kensington Tube Station.

    We know Phil Howard and have eaten before at the Square. First time at Elystan, and no surprise that it was an excellent evening - my wife's birthday. The décor and layout of the restaurant is warm and inviting, yet not over pretentious. And all the necessary precautions were taken due to Covid. The menu is simple but at the same time complete. A good option selection. Simple means the quality and presentation is the best it can be. We started with the Ravioli of ham hook and the dressed crab. The ravioli is one large piece, thin pasta cooked to perfection with melt in the mouth ham. The crab, although the most expensive starter was worth every bit the price. Only white meat, rich flavor and dressed to perfection. Mains was the fillet of Cornish cod and the fillet of John Dory. The olive creamed potato was so smooth, it was like a thick cream. Both pieces of fish were so fresh, cooked just perfectly and with crispy skin. Desert was the port roasted figs and New York style cheese cake. All washed down with a lovely bottle of Pouilly Fumé 2018.
