The Four Seasons Trinity Square opened earlier this year with its headline star of the show restaurant, La Dame De Pic, from the multi Michelin-starred chef Anne Sophie Pic. Well now they’ve launched their second restaurant, Mei Ume, which combines the best of Chinese and Japanese cuisine into one all-singing all-dancing menu. Being in such a beautiful old building (previously the headquarters of The London Port Authority), the restaurant itself is a pretty stunning space, with high ceilings, huge columns, traditional Chinese and Japanese artworks on the walls and some nice art deco light fixtures.
On the menu you can choose a mix of Chinese or Japanese or just stick to one; there’s plenty to choose from. We went for a mix and couldn’t resist the whole signature roast Peking duck – not cheap at £85 but if there’s a few of you sharing it’s worth it to get a taste of the soft meat and light crispy skin. We weren’t so keen on the second serving, which was the remainder of the duck in a salad, but the first serving with pancakes and plum sauce was worth it alone.
