Villandry, a well-known London deli and restaurant might just have honed the ultimate kid’s menu. The Sunday Times of London gave us a sneak peak this week of a new children’s menu sculpted by Annabel Karmel.
It features, "macaroni cheese with bacon, and chicken-breast strips with courgette
chips. Portions are small and made with reduced salt and impeccable
ingredients; a two-course lunch costs about £6."
Villandry, 170 Great Portland Street, W1; 020 7631 3131.
The Sunday Times also tells us about Roussillon, a Michelin-starred restaurant in ritzy Chelsea, where kids sample a six-course menu (£15, or free for up to two under-11s
with every adult diner on the first and third Wednesday of every
month). Dishes include "scallops with black truffle, wild sea bass
with mango salad, and rhubarb and pomegranate jelly"
Frankly, I think my kids might have some issues with black truffle but, at $30, it’s not an experiment I’m likely to try any time soon.
Still, if you are in London and fancy a splurge here’s the address:
Roussillon, 16 St Barnabas Street, SW1; 020 7730 5550
