Alex Webb has launched a new restaurant residency at InterContinental London Park Lane. Alex Webb on Park Lane comes following the huge success of the chef’s pop-up on the hotel’s terrace earlier in the year.
The charming Essex-born chef started out washing pots at his local restaurant aged just 14, before going on to train at restaurants including Hélène Darroze at The Connaught, Dinner by Heston, Roux at Parliament Square, and The Frog in Hoxton. Alex’s first moment in the spotlight came in 2020 when he has crowned winner of MasterChef: The Professionals.
Alex Webb on Park Lane marks a new chapter in the journey of this talented young chef. For the new restaurant residency, Alex will be championing British produce whilst also incorporating international influences inspired by his travels and nostalgic flavours from his childhood. You will be able to choose from a four-course menu with a choice of dishes at each course (£75 per person) or a seven-course tasting menu (£110 per person). Vegetarian-tasting menu options are also available.
The menu is really varied and enticing. The opening dishes hark back to some of Alex’s earliest food memories, with the Cheesy Chester’s Puff a take on the first dish Alex cooked in primary school, and the Bread and Yeasted Butter incorporating barley and rye, inspired by a poem often recited by his grandad. From the starters, Cod, white bean cassoulet and sea herbs is a take on one of Alex’s winning MasterChef dishes. Our favourite is a moreish chicken parfait, puff pastry, slow-cooked chicken thigh, leek, chicken jus and truffle.
All main courses come served with Alex’s signature slow-cooked potato and parmesan, and include autumnal flavours such as Creedy Carver duck breast, blackberry, port and hispi cabbage and Chalk Stream trout, parsnip, parsley, mussel and caviar cream sauce.
The chef’s imagination and playful approach come into their own with desserts such as Alex’s mystery box: Can you get inside? which challenges diners to reveal a code and unlock their spectacular choux bun pudding. Those favouring a savoury end to their meal will be offered a selection of cheeses, presented on a map to highlight the wonderful variety available in the UK.
Situated at one of the capital’s most prestigious addresses, InterContinental London Park Lane presents modern luxury in the heart of Mayfair. This stunning new dining space at InterContinental London Park Lane also incorporates a bar, serving creative cocktails, French, English and natural wines from Hattingley Valley, and brilliant punchy cider from Sandford Orchards. A must-try is Alex’s own blend created especially for the restaurant, a hybrid cider with a burgundy influence. A choice of cider and wine pairing will also be available alongside both the four-course and seven-course menus. There are also signature cocktails like Chef Webb with Earl Grey-infused Beefeater gin, lemon balm-ginger-honey syrup, lemon, egg white and strawberry.
Alex Webb on Park Lane will be open Wednesday-Saturday.
