Mark Jarvis to Open New Restaurant: Stem

SEEN hears that Mark Jarvis, Chief Patron of award-winning restaurants Anglo in Farringdon and Neo in Oxford Street has announced a new venture: Stem, which is set to open in March this year.

Jarvis commented: “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.

Jarvis has created the menus with Head Chef Sam Ashton-Booth (formerly Head Chef at Anglo), offering modern seasonal British dishes, à la carte, and short tasting menus. Dishes will include: Smoked eel, celeriac and white chocolate; Pigeon, coconut and salted peanut; and Pineapple, olive oil, lime and salt – an intriguing combination of ingredients as readers will no doubt agree.

An international wine list of over 120 bins is promised, overseen by the company’s Operational Manager Jon Cannon.

The interior will be bright and spacious, designed by Commercial Kitchen and Bar Ltd. It will seat up to 35 and feature a verdant living wall. The lower ground level will have a six-seat private chef’s table with darker tiling and granite table tops throughout.

Stem will be open Tuesday to Saturday for lunch, Monday to Saturday for dinner and Sunday from 11am to 4pm.
