>> St Alban
4-12 Lower Regent St,
King & Corbins 2007 Opening at Rex house has been a long time coming. Popular consensus however is that its been well worth the wait as the golden Duo behind the Wolseley (not to mention putting the Ivy and Caprice back on the London dining map) have served up another storm at this meditereanean influenced eatery in Mayfair. The lavishness for which the pair are known is evident in a large, light, very swish room with a low ceiling designed to produce an excellent acoustic. The swirly-patterned murals of the restaurant's motif - a curious collation of cutlery, crockery, light bulb, bunch of keys and a solitary sandal - lend it a faint late-60s retro look; and the room is cunningly designed around concentric circles, to ensure that no punters are denied the chance to stare at the sort of clientele K&C tend to attract. At St Alban, the menu, although faintly eclectic, is less determinedly chopped-liver-followed-by-ghoulash eclectic, the cuisine being mainly Italo-Hispanic, with the upper hand held by the chef's homeland of Italy. A Latinate Wolsely for Lower Regent street and a surefire hit form Messrs Corbin & King and their innumerable foodie disciples.
