The Silver Birch restaurant on Chiswick High Rd has brought out a new menu for the spring and it has supplies of the famous Ruinart Blanc des Blanc Champagne back in stock.

“We are now the only restaurant in West London that currently has stock of it as it is on a very privileged allocation due to stock shortages” General Manager Dan Jelensek tells The Chiswick Calendar.

Ruinart is the oldest established Champagne house, exclusively producing champagne since 1729. Founded by Nicolas Ruinart in the Champagne region in the city of Reims, the house is today owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA.

“Their production of Champagne was very much affected with the situation we have been in and also by bad weather conditions which affected their output and stock levels which has made the Blanc des Blancs very scarce and on a very honoured allocation” says Dan. He had to pull some strings to get hold of a supply.

Owned by first-time restaurateur, Tim Price, The Silver Birch offers weekend brunch, lunch and dinner. The restaurant is overseen by head chef Kimberley Hernandez (formerly head chef at Andrew Wong’s Kym’s, Bao Group’s XU Teahouse). The menu showcases Kimberley’s culinary expertise and creativity served with uncomplicated finesse, soul-restoring food that leaves guests feeling revived.

New dishes coming in this week at Silver Birch

Torbay monkfish, yuzu kosho, black garlic jus, spinach

Chef’s recommendation: “Driven by flavour and seasonality this new addition on the menu highlights the peak season for yuzu. Highlighting the sweetness and texture of British monkfish balanced with the deep and rich flavour of fermented black garlic sauce. A dish to be experienced.”

Grilled baby gem lettuce, green sauce, Parmesan

Chef’s recommendation: “A naughty and fresh start to the meal . The versatility of baby gems brought out by the grill layered with a smoked emulsion, a piquant green sauce in a chimichurri style and rounded out by shaved Parmesan.”

The Silver Birch offers Club Card holders 20% off weekday lunch or a welcome cocktail / mocktail on arrival for evenings and weekend brunches. The restaurant is open for lunch Wednesday to Friday during the week.
