Avenue is a D&D London restaurant & bar in St James serving up Asian-inspired cuisine with a fiery South American twist, for lunch & dinner Monday to Friday, brunch on Saturday and Sunday lunch. Avenue’s brand new menu takes inspiration from the culinary regions that circumference the ‘Ring of fire‘, the volcanic belt containing more than 75% of the world’s active and dormant volcanoes, stretching up clockwise from the basin of the Pacific to Alaska and then all the way down to South America, following the great Andes mountain chain.
All the while, giving a nod to its St James’s roots with stunning art-focused interiors and a unique wine list. With Head Chef Andras Katona at the helm utilising the highest quality, natural produce and resources, diners can expect fresh, healthy dishes including; carpaccio, tartare, ceviche, poke & salads and the best quality fresh meat and fish on the grill.
The 112-cover restaurant revolves around a spectacular central Decanting Bar, above which a huge illuminated chandelier sparkles with wine glasses – the perfect place for guests to sit and soak up the buzz of the room with a glass of wine from the unique-to-the-UK wine access system Coravin.
D&D London stands for CEO Des Gunewardena and MD David Loewi who led the buyout of Conran Restaurants in September 2006. The company has been backed by leading UK equity house LDC since April 2013 and owns and operates over 30 leading restaurants in London, Leeds, Paris, New York and Tokyo.
