Brasserie in Chelsea
Newly opened No Fifty Cheyne is a brasseire in Chelsea serving British dishes with the addition of an open grill for diners to enjoy. The setting is sophisticated and elegant making it feel quite special.
The cocktail list is creative and has twists to classics available. We tried the Make tequila great again (£11) with cacao infused ocho tequila, honey water, amaro montenegro, teapot bitters and ginger ale. Our second choice was the Pavillion sour £11 with absolut elyx, Pierre Ferand ry curacao, lillet rose, cranberry, lemon, scented with roja dove enigma pour homme. Both were incredibly light and crisp in taste and simply yet elegantly presented.
We started with the Seared scallop with bacon jam, cep mushroom and asparagus sauce £19.50. Staff were incredibly easygoing about accommodating a change to this dish to remove the meat and it was a delicious light starter. Equally impressive was the green bean and artichoke salad with truffle vinaigrette, almonds and popped quinoa (£10.50). We loved the pops of flavour and texture and would certainly order this again.
We opted for the fish choices and tried the Fillet of hake with peas and broad beans, white wine and peppercorn sauce (£24.50). We also sampled the halibut, soft leeks and courgette with lobster bisque (£32). Both were incredibly well cooked; flaky and tender with rich flavourful sauces. The lobster bisque in particular was a real highlight.
We devoured the Creme Brulee (£9). It was lovely and creamy with a satisfyingly crackly top to break through. The Hot chocolate fondant with salted caramel sauce (£11.50) was also well received. Each component was steeped in rich flavour, the passion fruit ice cream was gorgeously fruity and the fondant lovely and rich. The two flavours were not the most natural pairing but we still enjoyed the dish.
No Fifty Cheyne is an exquisite brasserie in Chelsea. From the service to the beautiful floral decor, intimate space, sumptuous furniture and wonderfully crafted dishes, it was wonderful.
The ingredients are of the finest quality and the emphasis on dining here being a real experience is evident from the level of service and the open grill coming to life in the midst of the dining room. We appreciated the level of attention to detail here and it is absolutely a great treat for a special occasion given the price tag. There is a beautiful cocktail bar upstairs perfect for a drink also should you wish to check out the space.
