Chef William Drabble opened Seven Park Place at the five star St. James’s Hotel in 2009, and was awarded a Michelin star within a year, which it has retained so far. Prior to this he worked at Pied a Terre with Tom Aikens, and he took over from Gordon Ramsay at Aubergine.
Drabble’s cooking is contemporary French, but ingredients are faithfully British. His signature dishes include ravioli of langoustine with cabbage and truffle butter sauce, and assiette of rabbit with pickled carrots. Clashing patterns on the carpet, wallpaper and furniture may be too fussy for some, but this shouldn’t detract from the food.
