Jason Atherton spent nine years cooking under Gordon Ramsay, most recently at the helm of the small-plates spot Maze. His long-awaited solo restaurant, in a sprawling Mayfair space accented with contemporary art, opened in 2011 to instant acclaim for its confidant cooking—a squid dish, for instance, comes with cauliflower that has been diced finely enough to resemble risotto and comes in a clear, squid-flavored jus. At the stand-alone six-stool “dessert bar,” diners can watch pastry chefs prepare inventive concoctions like a plum soup with figs and honey-milk ice cream.
