Awarded a Michelin Star in 2010 for its excellent healthy cuisine and exquisite wines, Texture Restaurant and Champagne Bar is housed in a beautifully restored Georgian building on Portman Square, at the heart of Mayfair and just minutes from Oxford Street.
Believed to be the first restaurant co-founded by an award-winning sommelier and top chef, Texture is the brainchild of Xavier Rousset and Agnar Sverrisson who met whilst working under Raymond Blanc at La Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons. The muted interior of the restaurant and champagne bar blends contemporary elegance with original features and striking artwork by renowned Icelandic artist, Tolli.
Texture serves modern European cuisine that focuses on combining and emphasising different consistencies.
Elegantly designed, the champagne bar is perfect for pre-dinner aperitifs or those who want to take advantage of Rousset's extraordinary champagne list, containing close to 100 different champagnes, making Texture one of London's most extensive Champagne destinations.

This 1 Michelin restaurant is a visual and tasteful treat. The icelandic influence is clear with a clean menu and a understated elegance.
The mood lighting transforms the dining experience so much, that you become desensitised to your location. The restaurant could easily been in trendy NY, Melbourne or Paris.
