1771 - A new neighbourhood favourite opens in the heart of Chelsea

Mark Jarvis, the chef behind popular Farringdon restaurant Anglo, has launched 1771, a new contemporary British restaurant on Holbein Place, Chelsea. Inspired by the restaurant’s locale, 1771 takes its name from the year the area was first established, highlighting their commitment to both serving its residents and using local independent suppliers throughout the restaurant.

Situated just off Sloane Square, 1771 offers the perfect escape from hectic city life. Diners will be transported to a modern, residential space where they can admire artwork from renowned twentieth century artists, such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. 1771’s contemporary and polished cuisine is reflected in the restaurant’s aesthetic. A deep sacramento green facade embellished with hand-cut fresh flowers welcome guests to the space. Once inside, shades of warm tan and green flow throughout the restaurant; using fabrics from acclaimed Chelsea-based luxury interior designer Rose Uniacke, praised for her serene modernity. Banquette seating is upholstered in her distinguished linen, alongside plush cushions covered in a selection of green and tan hues.

The 50-seater dining room, spread across two spaces, is laid with a natural seagrass flooring to give the space a warm yet casual feel; marble topped tables are adorned with crisp white linen to provide a stark, clean contrast to the natural tones throughout the rooms. The restaurant is flooded with light from a series of windows looking out onto the street, making it the perfect place to while away an afternoon.

Available from lunch through to late evening, Mark’s menus focus on refined, creative cooking using carefully grown locally sourced produce. Mark has curated a tasting menu, which begins with plates such as spider crab with sunflower seed and apple kombucha and beef tartare with mushroom custard and sesame. To follow dishes include market fish with Normandy carrot and sea vegetables and Koji aged beef with confit beetroot and pecan. For a sweet end to the tasting menu there is a rosemary madeleine with yogurt sorbet and hazelnut on offer as well as Kladdkaka with roasted apple and parsnip ice cream.

An enviable yet accessible wine list is selected to perfectly accompany Mark’s dishes with an impressive selection of white and red wines from Burgundy. Following dinner, guests can descend to the vibrant bar, designed as a homage to the Pop Art movement, where an original print of Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans can be admired.
