Pollen Street Social
8/10 Pollen Street, Mayfair, London W1S 1NQ
Michelin-starred Pollen Street Social is casual and customer-oriented in its attitudes – a contemporary bistro offering relaxed and informal fine dining. If you want a cocktail and a bit of tapas, you can stop in the bar. If you want a traditional three-course meal, of course, you can have that. If you want simply a steak, you can have just that. If you want to create your own tasting menu, by all means go ahead. In short – if you’re bored of the fixed traditions of ‘fine dining’ you’re going to love this place.
