John Burton-Race celebrated the opening of his new restaurant, The New Angel, Notting Hill JOHN BURTON-RACE - Photo by Alan Chapmanlast night with guests including Donna Air, Rusty Lee, Jilly Goolden, Jules Knight and Ravinder Bhogal and the cream of Notting Hill residents. Guests were treated to a stunning selection of canapés including Japanese tempura tiger prawns with chilli & tomato dip, seven spice salt; Buckwheat blinis, horseradish cream, smoked salmon & ossetre caviar and Lamb & lentil samosa with mint and yoghurt dressing – and Laurent Perrier champagne. Set in a converted Victoria pub in Chepstow Place, The New Angel, Notting Hill is an elegant 54-cover restaurant offering John’s unique style of contemporary European food with a French influence. The menu is ingredient-led and seasonal with signature dishes, complemented by an exquisite, predominantly French wine list. Photo by Alan ChapmanJohn commented: “The restaurant scene in London just gets better and better, and I am thrilled to be returning to the capital at such an exciting time. With The New Angel, Notting Hill, we are hoping to create a venue which is both a destination, and a neighbourhood restaurant, serving simple yet creative dishes made with beautiful British ingredients.” Look out for our interview with the man himself later on in the month.
