New Menu and Interior at French Restaurant Orrery

Orrery, the French restaurant in the heart of Marylebone, has marked its 21st anniversary by re-opening with a new menu from chef patron Igor Tymchyshyn and brand new interior.

Tymchyshyn’s classic and modern French cooking takes its inspiration from ingredients sourced largely from British suppliers and France.

The menu features new dishes of fillet steak tartare with a sourdough and truffle dressing and a signature Kentish lamb wellington with salsify and garlic, for two to share.

Original favourites remain, including the Tournedos Rossini with celeriac and sauce périgordine and Jerusalem artichoke risotto.

Orrery’s celebrated cheese trolley is on offer after dinner, and showcases over thirty artisan cheeses all curated by the restaurant’s very own ‘frommelier’, and for those keen to learn more, the restaurant will host regular cheese and wine evenings throughout the year.

Tymchyshyn said: “We’re looking forward to embarking on this next chapter for Orrery. In the midst of celebrating such a huge milestone for the restaurant, it was the right time to take on a more sophisticated look, while retaining the spirit of us being very much a neighbourhood restaurant. Orrery holds special memories for a lot of our guests and we are looking forward to creating new memories and continuing with our journey.”

Working closely with David D’Almada of Sagrada, the new interior includes furniture, artwork and textiles inspired from the south of France with details of lavender panelling and handmade terracotta clay pots.

The dining room has muted tones of grey, blue and lilac throughout. The space is brightened by the floor to ceiling arched windows, framing the St Marylebone Church courtyard, and flooding the restaurant with natural daylight.
