What's not to like about Medlar? Sensational Modern European cuisine, effortless service, elegant oak floors, and mirrored walls make for a complete neighborhood package at the quieter strip of King's Road in Chelsea. Weekday set lunches offer good value at £26, where you'll find winners such as crab ravioli with fondant leeks and samphire, roast mallard with pear and star anise, or juicy steak with snails and triple-cooked chips. Deep flavors, balanced ingredients, and
technical precision are the watchwords here, where you're sure to find wonderous desserts—like cherry clafoutis with vanilla ice cream or blackberry beignet with lemon curd—that are gorgeous to the eye and inevitably delicious.
