Ludlow's loss is London's gain as the two-Michelin starred Hibiscus moves to Mayfair. Relocating from Shropshire, husband and wife team Claude and Claire Bosi have decided to keep much of their previous restaurant - it's a winning formula so why change it? Everything from the menu right down to the artwork on the walls has been recreated, even the teapots and trays come from Ludlow. Tellingly, most of the staff have moved too. Sample dishes are another indication of their roots with Bosi intent on using Welsh ingredients; Elwy Valley lambs brain, Shropshire rose veal and choux farci of Welsh lamb come fresh from the Marshes and hill farms in the heart of North Wales. Prices too have remained at provinces levels which, when you transport them to London and compare them to their equivalents, suddenly seem very reasonable indeed. Ludlow maybe mourning their loss but we're thankful that the Bosis have chosen to close their original restaurant. Unlike so many chefs of this calibre whose name becomes a brand and who spread themselves thinly over their culinary mini empires, Claude can concentrate on getting this one right.
