Ours

 

Ours is a chic and trendy new restaurant opened in the heart of Knightsbridge by Tom Sellers, behind the iconic Restaurant Story. Before it was even opened it was voted ‘London’s hottest restaurant’, and this is an ode to its culmination of stylish and refreshing interior and imaginative cuisine.

With its unassuming exterior, it comes across as a mysterious destination and this is also seen in its white tunnel walkway, retained from its former venue The Collection, with illuminated flooring that leads into the restaurant. Upon entering Ours, guests are met with upbeat music from 80s pop to 90s RnB, and a huge open area with floor-to-ceiling walls of flowers and greenery, and 10ft tall olive trees draped in fairy lights interspersed throughout the restaurant. In contrast to the aloof exterior and tunnel walkway into Ours, the interior is bright and magical with an outside-inside and secret garden theme, giving guests the perfect Instagramable moments.

Head chef, Douglas Santi has previously worked closely with French chef, Alain Ducasse, and has curated an internationally inspired sharing menu drawing from Mediterranean, Latin and Asian influences. Courtesy of the head chef, the extravagant and creative interior at Ours is complemented by an out-of-the-ordinary menu that delineates items not based on the traditional starters, mains and desserts but in terms of dishes such as, ‘snacks’, ‘raw’, ‘beef’ and ‘sides’. If you are peckish, you may find yourself tempted to try items on the ‘snack’ menu, with highlights including the delicious shrimp and yuzu toasties and the anchovy and avocado tarts. The ‘snack’ items are a modern pre-starter that can easily be followed by a classic steak tartare served from the ‘raw’ section of the menu. Beef dishes are as sumptuous as the other menu items, and favourites include the Galician beef sirloin with béarnaise sauce, soft lamb with charred butter lettuce, morels and peas, and veal cooked on the bone with girolles and truffles. The ‘side’ dishes cannot be missed either, and we recommend that every main meal should be accompanied with either a side of truffle parmesan chips, or half-roasted cauliflower flavoured with African spices.

Fresh ingredients, such as, kale, pomegranate and melon are added to most dishes, and not only harmoniously add multiple layers of flavour and texture, but also create colourful and photogenic dishes perfect for uploading to an Instagram story. Ours also elevates its cocktails not only in terms of flavour, but also with its presentation. Each cocktail is especially crafted with a story in mind, with one of our favourites being the ‘Gin in a bottle’, which is an earl grey infused gin served in a small genie-like lamp, inspired by the fictional story of Aladdin.

Ours has successfully created an oasis in the idyllic Knightsbridge area, where guests can escape city life and unwind in a calming and natural scene with the added bonus of great cuisine. Guests can expect to spend about £100 a head, and with this in mind we consider Ours to be an ideal restaurant for special occasions.
