Kensington PlaceFormerly the home of chef Rowley Leigh (now at Le Cafe Anglais) who cooked for the celebrity clientele at Kensington Place for 20 years, everyone thought his departure in 2006 would mean the end of the good times here. But D&D (who bought up Conran's restaurant empire) have injected Kensington Place with a new lease of life and the landmark restaurant continues to keep the crowds coming. The interiors have been redesigned by Polly Dickens, formerly creative director of The Conran Shop, and include a communal table and banquette seating as well as a beautiful black and white tiled floor. The menu is British brasserie with an emphasis on fish - sourced from Billingsgate Market and the British coast where possible. Customers can visit the Fish Shop next door next door and select their catch, if they wish, or simply choose from the menu. Alongside fish pie, fish and chips and seared Cornish scallops are more meaty options like steak frites, roast rump and confit shoulder of lamb served with Jerusalem artichokes and girolles, as well as braised suckling pig belly. Families are welcome and every dish on the menu is available in a child sized portion.
