Lunch At Mortimer House Kitchen Fitzrovia London W1

While exploring the area, I had a lovely lunch at Mortimer House Kitchen, Fitzrovia, London W1. It’s an upscale yet cosy restaurant and bar with a terrace serving Breakfast, Brunch, and an All Day Menu for Lunch and Dinner. The food leans towards Italian cuisine but not entirely, so expect other flavours to appear. If you’re looking for lunch places on Mortimer Street, the best restaurants in Fitzrovia or somewhere to book a client dinner in W1, you’ll love Mortimer House Kitchen.

“With Italian flavours and more, the cosy and charming appeal of Mortimer House Kitchen will entice you back, time and time again,” Homegirl London.

Mortimer House Kitchen All Day Menu

The All Day Menu is concise but offers enough selection to suit all tastes. As I was dining alone, I chose vegan and veggie options. I didn’t partake in the Snacks, although the Rosemary Foccacia with Olive Oil and Aged Balsamic and the Parmigiana Croquettes did sound rather tempting, and I am partial to Smoked Almonds!

Instead, I went straight for the Small Plates, where I dithered for a while. Would it be the Burrata with Grilled Red Endive, Black Olive and Green Oil? Or perhaps the Crispy Artichokes with Salsa Verdie and Aioli? It was a rainy day, so I settled on the Primavera Soup to warm me up. It did the job thanks to the soothing ingredients of Peas, Board Beans, Cannellini, Basil and Pecorino Sardo. Other Starters you may be interested in are Dressed Crab, Cured Sea Trout and Grilled Asparagus with Lardo.

When I reached the Plates section of the Menu, I wished I had a dining companion so we could share a couple of dishes. Ultimately, I opted for the Jersey Salad, which looked stunning when it arrived. The ingredients worked well together, from the nutty-tasting Jersey Royals to the tart Smoked Ricotta, grassy Wild Garlic, sweet Tropea Onions and the broken pieces of tangy Parmesan Crisps. I would also like to try the Garden Grains, Cacio E Pepe (Pasta dish from Rome with Cheese and Pepper), Gnocchi Alla Sorrentina (Gnocchi in a rich Tomato Sauce) and the Sicilian Aubergine. Sea Bream, Monkfish Saltimbocca and 28-Day Aged Hereford Sirloin are also available.

When I reached the Dessert Menu, I had another conundrum. Would it be the Tiramisu, Chocolate Pot or Red Wine Poached Pear? I asked for advice, and the Chocolate Pot with Lime Gel, Pinenuts, and Ufra Chilli was apparently the one. As I love Chocolate Mousse, I didn’t debate the recommendation and am pleased to report that I loved every mouthful. With a drizzle of Olive Oil and those Pinenuts, it tasted beautiful! If you’d rather finish with something savoury, you can ask about the selection of Cheeses on offer.

To give you an idea about prices, Snacks are £5-14, Small Plates £10-16, Big Plates 16-38, Sides (Olive Oil Mash, Sauteed Spring Greens, Hand Cut Chips and Mixed Leaves) £6, Desserts £8-8.50, and the Cheeseboard is £16. I didn’t drink as I was donating blood later, but I had a browse. There was a Laurent Perrier Rose Champagne for special occasions, along with White Wine, Red Wine and a few Beers. The House Cocktails are worth checking out, and I like the sound of their Caramel Espresso Martini.
