Cinnamon Club, the Indian restaurant in a historic library, has gone flower-powered for one week only.
The fine-dining haunt in Westminster (apparently a favoured spot of MPs) has joined in the fun of Chelsea Flower Show with a Secret Spice Garden menu and a spot of seasonal decor.
Chef Rakesh Nair has devised a fresh-but-filling five-course tasting experience adorned and flavoured with floral ingredients – and it’s as tasty as it is pretty, TBH.
On the menu, you’ll find…
Kadhai spiced English asparagus with smoked aubergine chutney, jeera aloo, pea shoot
Spiced Devon crab and rocket salad with burnt chilli and tamarind dressing, anise blossom
Lime and mint sorbet with dushi button crumble
Smoked loin of Romney Marsh lamb with rich onion sauce, keema karela
Alphonso mango fondant with chilli mango soup, pink peppercorn crisp, Jasmine petal
For refreshment, you can sip on your complimentary botanical bellini or get yourself a flower-festooned cocktail of pisco, honey, camomile, lemon, apple and turmeric. It’s pretty seriously refreshing.
Cinnamon Club’s Secret Spice Garden Menu is £48 and available until Sunday, May 28. Book at cinnamonclub.com.
Find them at The Old Westminster Library, Great Smith St, Westminster, London SW1P 3BU. Nearest tube: Westminster.
