Blandford Comptoir

1 Blandford St

London, Greater London W1U 3DA

Blandford Comptoir, the brainchild of Xavier Rousset, impresses both with its Mediterranean small and large plates and its impressive 250-wine beverage program. Selections on the menu range from raw options, like sweet and sticky Sicilian red prawns, vegetables, like the courgette flower with goats curd, and meats, like a delicate quail with truffle boudin and pine nuts. Blandford’s real heroes are its servers, who feverishly yet gracefully climb the restaurant’s impossibly steep staircase like acrobats to shepherd diners’ plates; the 40-seat space is so diminutive that there’s no room for a dumbwaiter. But gymnastics aside, Blandford Comptoir is relaxed and informal, a perfect date spot in the heart of Marylebone.
