>> London Carriageworks
Hope Street Hotel,
40 Hope Street,
The London Carriageworks is the showroom for master chef Paul Askew. The son of a merchant navy sea captain, Askew has collected his childhood flavours of South East Asia and the Middle East, thrown in strong New York influences and created a modern international menu with a strong emphasis on the use of local, organic and fresh seasonal produce. His signature dishes betray his penchant for Gloucestershire Old Spot pork; red roast belly and globe artichoke and tenderloin stuffed with shoulder of pork served with apple mash are utterly exquisite and validate the claims that Mr Askew could be destined for Michelin stardom. Other noteworthy offerings include Welsh saltmarsh lamb loin, rack and kidney with fondant potatoes, buttered vegetable shavings and creamed leek and confit of shoulder wonton or the ethereal Northop wood pigeon breast, stuffed with mushroom and foie gras, rolled in Parma ham, then pan-roasted in three medallions with puy lentils and pigeon jus,served with a black cherry dre. This is so much more than haute cuisine by the numbers. Situated in the cultural quarter of the city, between the two cathedrals, The London Carriage Works acquired its name when during construction works the original sign above the restaurant doors became apparent in the stonework. The building, built in the 1860s in the style of a grand Venetian Palazzo, was once the home of a coach and carriage builders.
