Hunter 486, the restaurant located within boutique hotel The Arch London in Marylebone, is proud to announce the launch of a brand new restaurant menu concept.
Launching on 9 February 2015, the new menu has been carefully developed by Head Chef Gary Durrant at Hunter 486, with Henrietta Green; food and hospitality consultant, award-winning food writer and broadcaster. Henrietta is also a well know advocate of the local food movement, and author of the much loved book ‘A Food Lover’s Guide to Britain’.
The new menu is inspired by ‘best of British’ recipes, ingredients and produce, with hearty dishes featuring quality ingredients prepared honestly and simply. Dishes will include delights such as: Salad of crispy oxtail with cream of horseradish; Potted duck with fruit chutney and sourdough; Peppered loin of venison with beetroot puree, turnip and potato gratin; Homemade hamburger with onion marmalade in a brioche bun with Hunter ketchup and hand cut chips; and Sticky toffee pudding with caramelised banana ice cream.
The crowning glory of the new menu is the use of the stone oven. As it operates at a very high heat, meat and fish are produced with astonishingly succulent results. So try a whole Roast Norfolk Black Free Range chicken, cooked to tender perfection and served with roast garlic, roast potatoes, aioli, parsley & caper sauce and gravy, for two or four to share, just one of the many stone oven specialities.
The new menu also introduces Plates, Pots, Boards and Bowls for one or two share, either at the bar over a cocktail, or in the restaurant as a starter or main course, and include homemade crisps with sage, lemon & sea salt made freshly every day. The Fish board comes loaded with potted shrimps, cured salmon, mackerel pate, smoked eel and prawns; and the Cheeseboard with British farmhouse cheeses, quince jelly and homemade oatcakes.
Named after the 1950s dialling code for Marylebone, Hunter 486 has been designed with an air of nostalgic London glamour fused with contemporary touches. The restaurant features gleaming leather booths, blown glass chandeliers and statement artwork, plus an adjoining chic Salon de Champagne bar. The kitchen is delightfully open plan and airy, allowing guests to watch the skilled chefs at work amongst the gleaming selection of copper pots and pans suspended from the ceiling. Light streams through the large windows, treating guests to a charming view of the neighbourhood mews, and come the evening, the softly lit restaurant is an intimate and romantic setting for dinner and drinks.
The SLOAN! Review
We ended the meal with the Sticky Toffee Pudding which interestingly was served with caramelised banana ice cream. The pudding itself had a rich sauce and was soft and sumptuous. We also tried the restaurant’s homemade coconut ice cream. It was made from fresh coconut milk and had a mild yet distinctive flavour.
Our experience at Hunter 486 was second to none. The chef’s inspired menu was beautifully put together and the service was very friendly and knowledgeable. We at SLOAN! would recommend Hunter 486, the perfect place to have a business meal or have a romantic date.
