Many different types of restaurants with varying atmospheres may be found in Covent Garden. Pivot, by Mark Greenaway, is a new restaurant where you can enjoy British cuisine and a delicious Sunday roast in a relaxing setting. The floors and tables are dark wood, while the walls are a burnt orange that is livened up by unique artwork.
Mark Greenaway, a native Scotsman, revealed that he had never been to a restaurant before beginning his training to become a chef for the very first time. The award-winning Restaurant Mark Greenaway opened in 2013, and his second restaurant, Grazing by Mark Greenaway, followed in 2017. There is an Edinburgh counterpart to both. You might recognize him from his appearances on The Great British Menu or Saturday Kitchen Live on BBC1.
In 2021, he launched his newest dordle business, called Pivot. Located on the third level of a lovely five-story townhouse called 3Henrietta St, this intimate restaurant seats only about 20 guests and offers stunning views of the lively heart of Covent Garden below. The monthly-rotating menu features dishes that put a contemporary spin on traditional British cuisine.
We went there, though, since Mark Greenaways serves a mean Sunday roast.
This week’s Sunday Roast
There are only three main courses to choose from on the Sunday roast menu. Beef or lamb roast, cod fillet, or baked eggplant. Yorkshire puddings, gravy, and roast potatoes round off the meal. Two of our group members ordered the roast lamb and ate it with great enthusiasm. The beef was tender and flavorful, the Yorkshire puddings were perfectly fluffy, and the roast potatoes were perfectly crispy on the exterior and meltingly tender on the inside. The cooked fish fillet with parsley butter sauce was what I ended up ordering. (Entire meals are $21.00)
