In celebration of the arrival of summer, The Arch London has created a summer menu filled to the brim with seasonal ingredients, mouth-watering meat cuts and an extensive list of wines.

Head Chef, Gary Durrant has developed a series of dishes to excite your taste buds, including: Chilled cucumber and avocado soup with brown shrimp; Chicken, pistachio, apricot, baby gem and avocado salad; Tomato risotto, basil oil and parmesan crisp; and Steamed lemon sole fillets, samphire, brown shrimp butter.  And for those of you with a sweet tooth, options include Lemon posset with a sesame and poppy seed biscuit; Vanilla and passion fruit cheesecake; and Chocolate fondant, salted caramel ice cream and peanut brittle.

It gets better, Hunter 486 has also launched a new selection of 23 wines and champagnes, including red, white and rose varieties. All beverages are available by the glass, so you do not have to commit yourself to an entire bottle.

Now, for the sciencey bit. The Coravin model is used, a process that uses a thin, hollow needle and passes it through the cork to access the wine. The bottle is then pressurized with argon, pushing the wine through the needle so that it flows into the glass without letting any oxygen into the bottle. Once the needle is removed, the cork naturally reseals itself, and the remaining wine continues to mature.

Hunter 486 is the perfect spot for those wanting a nostalgic London vibe to accompany them while dining. The restaurant boasts leather booths, blown glass chandeliers and statement artwork, plus an adjoining chic Salon de Champagne bar. Definitely the perfect spot for a memorable day time or evening dining experience.
