Mark Jarvis, Chef Patron of award-winning restaurants Anglo in Farringdon and Neo near Oxford Street, has announced plans to launch a new venture – Stem – in late March 2018. Commenting on the plans, Jarvis explained: “Stem will be a bit of Anglo heading west to Regent Street – informal, but precise in terms of its modern British food.” Located in Princes Street, Mayfair, just off Regent Street, the property is owned by The Crown Estate and is part of a significant regeneration project to increase both restaurant and retail presence in the area.
The menus, created by Jarvis with Head Chef Sam Ashton-Booth (formerly Head Chef at Anglo) will offer modern seasonal British dishes. There will be both à la carte and short tasting menus – typical dishes will include Smoked eel, celeriac and white chocolate; Pigeon, coconut, salted peanut; and Pineapple, olive oil, lime and salt. An international wine list of approximately 120 bins will be overseen by the company’s Operations Manager Jon Cannon.
