45 Jermyn St., a new destination restaurant in the heart of St. James’s, opened its doors in late October for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night supper. The menu reflects modern London cuisine, offering both familiar favourites and dishes influenced by the cosmopolitan tastes of the capital’s restaurant goers. Rickies, apéritif sodas, ice cream sodas and cocktails with a 45 Jermyn St. twist will be served from the striking marble bar. The bar also offers an impressive selection of wines from a 230 bin wine list.

Designed by the renowned Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, the 113-cover restaurant has both table and counter dining options. The interiors fuse classical detailing with a rich colour palette, featuring burnt orange leather banquettes in the centre and intimate booths set against the front and back walls.

The restaurant menu will feature dishes such as: crushed avocado on toast with bloody mary sauce, pan fried fillet of sea bass with gnocchi and Isle of Barra cockles, tagliatelle with white alba truffles, and snails with gorgonzola and garlic butter.

The restaurant will also have a specially created caviar trolley serving Iranian Beluga 000, Golden Oscietra and Siberian Sturgeon caviars from £2 per gram. These will be weighed and served at the table, accompanied with toast, baked new potatoes, blinis and scrambled eggs prepared at the table. Tables will be able to order as little as a 10g serving of caviar and enjoy all traditional accompaniments.

There will be two soda fountains stationed on the back bar serving bespoke sodas and ice cream sodas for grown ups, as well as cocktails.
