Jason Atherton is a rare chef and his ability to stay under the radar so he can focus on running outstanding restaurants is a credit to him and his team. Make no mistake, Jason Atherton is exquisitely talented and one of a number of chefs to come through the Gordon Ramsay school of excellence. Pollen Street Social is a classic London restaurant that highlights Atherton’s skill: an ability to pare down dishes until they are perfect in every way. The restaurant received a star after six months in 2011. It’t not hard to see why.
