Truffle fortnight at Gary Rhodes Michelin starred Rhodes W1 restaurant

Following the success of the British Asparagus fortnight back in May, Gary Rhodes’ Michelin starred fine dining restaurant, Rhodes W1, is hosting an exclusive Truffle fortnight to celebrate the start of the new season.

The celebratory fortnight will be launched on the 12th October 2010, when Head Chef and Gary Rhodes’ protégé, Paul Welburn, will be treating guests to a fabulous four course menu from just £55.00 per person or seven courses for £75.00 per person.

The delicious menu will include ‘Truffled Jerusalem artichoke soup partridge and chestnut’, “Truffle and pine nut crusted halibut celeriac and confit chicken wing’, ‘Beef Rossini’ and ‘White chocolate custard truffle sorbet’ for dessert.

Commenting on the celebration, Head Chef Paul Welburn said “I worked closely with Gary to design this delightful menu in order to surprise people with something that they wouldn’t necessarily expect. This is going to be our first annual Truffle fortnight and we hope you will enjoy it as much as you enjoyed our British Asparagus menu.”

Michelin starred Rhodes W1 offers fine dining in a sumptuous environment, designed by Kelly Hoppen, the restaurant has beautiful antique mirrors draped in plush velvet, stunning Spina crystal chandeliers and original French chairs, quirkily printed with some of Gary’s own handwritten recipes.  The regular menu features classic British cuisine with a modern European twist, so guests can enjoy award winning food in a luxurious setting.
