In the heart of Belgravia, nestled within the beautiful Belgraves Hotel, is Pont St, a neighbourhood restaurant that offers Londoners the ultimate all-day dining experience. From an American style breakfast menu with freshly made juices, to decadent afternoon teas, burgers to rival the best in town and the all-important Sunday roast – at Pont St you will find a fresh twist on a wealth of classic dishes.
The restaurant is just minutes from both Knightsbridge and Sloane Square, so perfect for fuelling up before an afternoon of shopping, or as a final destination. The interior decor is very much like an upmarket brasserie, luxuriously relaxing and laid back, perfect for catching up with friends and long leisurely meals.
At the helm of Pont St is Sophie Michell who is currently Britain’s youngest female executive chef. Sophie’s cooking is produce driven and her ethos is to create clean and vibrant dishes, with the provenance of the ingredients shining through.
I stopped by recently with fellow foodie, Inna, for Saturday brunch. On arrival, we each ordered the Popeye green juice, a freshly pressed blend of cucumber, spinach, kale, apple, ginger and lemon. For our brunch we ordered the Truffle Burgers, Hand-cut Fries with Truffle & Parmesan, Cauliflower Cheese and a Belgravia Superfood Salad with Quinoa & Chicken.
First and foremost, the Truffle Burger was fantastic! It was encased in a sweet fluffy bun, with a rich & juicy burger, had cheese dripping off the sides and then smothered in a generous layer of truffle mayonnaise – every bite was meaty and trufflely. The Cauliflower Cheese was extra cheesy & creamy, the Hand-cut Fries were thick & filling, and last but not least the Quinoa Salad with Chicken was a fresh, healthy addition to balance out what was otherwise a heavy meal. Every mouthful was truly satisfying!
Once again, as is becoming the norm, we were far too full by the end of the meal for dessert! However, I did see the Snickers Bar dessert made from chocolate and peanut butter mousse, which I definitely want to come back for.
The service was attentive, blending British hospitality with an American bohemian attitude. Both our waiter and the restaurant manager went out of their way to introduce themselves and check that we were enjoying our meal. I shall certainly return for another Truffle Burger and hopefully have space for dessert!
