During my last trip to the Intercontinental Park Lane I learnt Theo Randall At The Intercontinental had been given a make over. I pondered for a moment. Theo Randall is one of my favourite chefs and his establishment at the Intercontinental a favourite restaurant of mine. Should I be concerned?
Theo and his team have re-created the restaurant with a more relaxed feel. A central partition has been demolished to open up the restaurant. Walls are now bathed in whites and creams, with small lemon trees scattered throughout. Furnishings are contemporary and bright. Large marble and wooden tables are paired with leather chairs and benches in cream and pastel green. Polished floors complete the look and deliver a distinctly Italian ambiance.
The menu is still full of the delicious dishes that make me a regular customer. Theo consistently delivers some of the best Italian food you are ever likely to eat. The Linguine con aragosta and the Piccione al forno as delicious as ever and the superb deserts are just yummy. I recommend you always leave room for some Amalfi lemon tart.
There was no need for concern. The decor has changed for the better and the food remains just as fabulous. Theo Randall At The Intercontinental is still the only Italian restaurant in London for me.
