What makes this new menu stand out from the previous menu in the Embankment Kitchen?

With this new menu, we’ve focused on mixing ingredients from around the world and enhancing the flavour, rather than fancy plating and unnecessary purees. That process of getting people’s taste buds popping is something I think about whenever I create my menus. 

Before we did something between Italian and modern British dishes. Now that we’re going towards a bar and grill menu, it’s all down to the prep and the recipes rather than the actual service.


I think it’s got to be the half-roast chargrilled chicken, it’s just colourful. It’s really colourful, looks good, and it’s really tasty - the base of its garlic, rosemary, thyme, lemon juice, lime juice and white wine. 

We’ve also got a mixture of spices to make a dry rub for the chicken as well. 

Would you say that there’s an overall favourite so far?


Is there anything else you can tell us about any upcoming dishes that the chefs want to make?

We plan to bring in some of the finer elements through our weekly specials. I want the chefs to get creative, so we’ll be focusing more on the technical ability in the kitchen by bringing in exciting and fun ingredients.


Yes. For the chicken, I’d probably recommend a white wine. The acidity of the marinade and spices go quite well with white wine. And for our steaks, you can’t beat a red wine pairing. 

Do you have any recommendations on paired drinks for guests that want to try the new menu?
