About: In February 2014, D&D’s Avenue restaurant in St James’s re-launched with a new look and an American-inspired menu. Avenue is open for lunch and dinner, with a menu boasting contemporary American dishes such as Clam chowder served in sourdough with littleneck clams and paper bag ‘crumbled’ bay crackers and 45-day-aged USDA flat iron steak with pastrami butter, celeriac fries and dill mayo. Sharing dishes from the Josper Grill will include Brooklyn Rooster – proper chicken prime cuts, wings and oysters with a buffalo sauce and a pitcher of Brooklyn tap and KC suckling pig butt with spiced bacon and pecan cabbage, cinder potato and sour cream, topped off with desserts such as Donut holes warm on parchment with cinnamon sugar, Hershey melt and JD custard.

Avenue is also open for brunch on Saturday's from 11am - 3pm, boasting some of the best American breakfasts in London. From Sunday 12th April 2015 we will also be extending our brunch to Sunday's so you can enjoy us all weekend long.

Twists on mac 'n' cheese
American-inspired Avenue may be a high end restaurant in St. James's, however they're a dab hand at comforting carb-heavy treats. They take humble mac 'n' cheese one step further over the junk food scales by cutting it up into finger-sized portions, coating them in bread and deep frying till golden, resulting in London's only macaroni cheese crisps.

Avenue is part of the D&D stable, the restaurant group once chaired by Sir Terence Conran. They currently run over 30 restaurants in London, from legendary Quaglino’s to the Dockland’s Butler’s Wharf Chop House. This is their swish all-day eatery in St. James’s; the menu has vogueish American cuisine, from grits and sausages at breakfast time through to clam chowder for dinner. Despite the hearty food it’s the kind of elegant restaurant where the staff wear such smart uniforms it’s hard to tell them apart from the customers; it’s also been designed by the ever-popular Russell Sage, but the décor is so neutral it reminds us of the interior of a hotel restaurant.

American food is not known for its diet-friendly properties, but as a slightly odd complement to their menu for the next couple of months Avenue are offering a range of fresh vegetable and fruit juices courtesy of a company called Radiance Cleanse. The juicing trend is becoming as popular over here as it is in New York, with many celebs subscribing to days at a time of consuming nothing but juice; we of course go for a full breakfast. Frittata bianca, an egg white omelette with salty Parma ham is delicious, and we also like the cheesy grits with rich sausage and gravy, paired with a doughy biscuit.

And the juices? There are four available. The deep green Chloro Coco is made with coconut water and liquid chlorophyll, a substance better known for giving plants their colour but good for stimulating the bowels in humans. Vital Green is an earthy-tasting drink made from cucumbers, apples, limes, spinach and parsley; equally earthy is Deep Roots, with courgettes, apples, fennel, broccoli and beetroot. Those who prefer traditional flavours might like Rise and Shine, a sweet concoction of ginger, pineapple and orange.

Avenue is quite old-school in its approach, but that's not a bad thing. It's located in London's prestigious St James's and has decor and service to match; decadent, luxurious and professional. The food was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed my evening with friends.
