Pollen Street Social
Pollen Street Social is a contemporary bistro offering deformalised fine dining in Mayfair. The flagship restaurant of renowned chef Jason Atherton, it houses a restaurant, social bar, dessert bar and private dining room, and holds one Michelin star.
For birthdays or business, romance or carousing, “flawless” Pollen Street Social is “the perfect restaurant” – whether you’re wearing jeans or a suit. It really is ‘social’ too, so start with a cocktail in the “ever-so-cool” bar, a taster of the invention and attention to detail to come.
Main man Jason Atherton is opening restaurants at breakneck speed, but this is his special project and the focus of his “imaginative yet approachable” cuisine: scallop carpaccio with kohlrabi, pomelo, yuzu jam, black olive and samphire is an austerely simple assembly of bracing flavours, while playful complexity shows in the signature ‘full English breakfast’ – an eggshell filled with slow-cooked egg, tomato purée, bacon and mushrooms.
