Wow, the Wild by Tart restaurant at Eccleston Yards in Belgravia is amazing. I’m besotted by the beautifully presented, delicious food. The restaurant owners are Jemima Jones and Lucy Carr-Ellison, the duo behind the Tart London catering company and Tom Warren of Lock Studios (photography studio). The menu features seasonal ingredients that are mostly sustainably sourced and often from Jemima or Lucy’s farms. Much of the cooking is done in the wood-burning oven or over a charcoal grill. If you are looking for the best restaurants in Belgravia or great places to eat near Victoria Station SW1, you’ll enjoy hanging out at Wild by Tart.

Wild by Tart A La Cart Menu
We went to Wild by Tart for lunch during the week. The menu was delightful and full of delectable dishes, so it took us a while to whittle it down to the ones we wanted to try. We started with the super cute Broad Bean and Mozzarella Arancini with Mint Aioli. These were crunchy balls with a light filling of the broad beans with mozzarella. Other snacks are Smoked Catalan Almonds, Marinated Olives and Charcuterie.

Next up was the creamy Burrata with Crushed Peas, Parmesan and Mint. The fresh green colours looked spectacular against the white burrata. The combination of crushed peas with the hint of mint and the nutty taste of Parmesan was a treat. We enjoyed dipping our Focaccia Bread with herb oil into the milky burrata.

The other dish we tried from the sharing/starter section was the Heritage Tomatoes with Black Olive Tapenade and Fennel. I always appreciate heritage tomatoes because they taste so amazing and have the perfect sweet to sour ratio. Other small plates were Wood Roasted Peppers with White Bean Hummus, Roast Courgettes with Westcombe Ricotta and Whipped Feta with Baby Beetroot.

Homeboy opted for the Bream with Coconut, Ginger and Turmeric for his main dish. The succulent fish is in a Sri Lankan style curry-like sauce that’s full of flavour thanks to the hits of ginger and turmeric. The other fish option was a Hake Fillet with Nduja Better and Fennel. Otherwise, it is Poussin with Grelot Onion and Chimichurri or Iberico Pork Chop.

Meanwhile, I was happy with my Courgettes, Confit Garlic Mascarpone, Spenwood (Neal’s Yard Dairy Cheese) and Lemon Flatbread. It was like a pizza but thin, so it was easier to digest. Other flatbreads were Figs with Cashel Blue Cheese and Walnut Pesto or Fennel with Pork Sausage.

We were quite full but couldn’t resist ordering a couple of desserts. The Baked Vanilla Cheesecake was light and delicate, with fresh strawberries on top, a strawberry sorbet on the side, and a few cheesecake base crumbs hiding under the sorbet. I suppose you could call it a deconstructed cheesecake.

The Peanut Butter and Chocolate Choux Bun was heavenly, and I’m still dreaming about it now. Other desserts were Roast Peach Sorbet, Pistachio Ice Cream, Petit Fours, or a Chocolate Cookie Skillet with Salted Milk Ice Cream.

Eccleston Yards is a former power station and coal store. It’s a fun place to hang out because the building is around a courtyard where you can watch outdoor screenings and dine alfresco. There are other restaurants within the complex, a yoga studio and a co-working space.
