Latest critic review: November 22, 2014
Critics' score: 6.5 out of 10



Spring is Skye Gyngell's first solo venture, who had such a big success at Petersham Nurseries. She has set up shop in the "new" wing of Somerset House which hasn't been open to the public for 150 years and serving fair like Grilled langoustine with seaweed butter and Roasted turbot with porcini and bone marrow.

"I unreservedly love three huge, silky-chewy porcini and potato-stuffed ravioli, bathed in butter and draped in huge, wilted sage leaves. We’re about to whinge about the lack of parmesan on top, but one mouthful and we shut up: the interplay between earthiness, salt and fat needs nothing further. This is sublime, uncomplicated perfection." READ REVIEW

"If it were my last meal on earth, I’d prefer one for which I had to engage my teeth; since it wasn’t, I wallowed in the softness of the textures delivering these surprising taste explosions." READ REVIEW

"Female-friendly but not fussy, gracious but not formal, Spring is a restaurant for all seasons. Don't you just love a story with a happy ending?" READ REVIEW

Reviewed on November 02, 2014
"Her new restaurant, Spring, boasts a sniffy “ingredients-led” menu, which is like saying a perfumerie offers “smells-oriented journeys” or a department store “has things”. What menu isn’t ingredients-led, please?" READ REVIEW

"Yet there’s much to commend Spring. It’s good to see fine Italian ingredients and the cuisine’s sometimes sour and bitter flavours being used, not excised." READ REVIEW

"There is nothing contrived, tricksy or evasive about these dishes, just an innate understanding of what goes with what — and the balls not to push further." READ REVIEW
