A bijou treasure that dispenses some of the most refined French cuisine in the capital. From legendary amuse-bouches & terrific breads to a wondrous ‘bookcase’ of petit fours, this is the kind of gastronomic experience you don’t forget in a hurry. Eating here is a thrilling ‘sensory journey’ full of complexity & fascination: just consider a starter of skate wing poached in beurre noisette with belly of suckling pig, sweetcorn, Roscoff onions & pickled shimeji mushrooms. After that, the kitchen broadens its palette, delivering the likes of roast Anjou pigeon breast with stuffed confit leg, braised turnip & pain d’épice crumb, before crowning it all with – say – lime mousse with rum & vanilla jelly, caramel ice cream, peppermint & chocolate crumbs. The restaurant is tailor-made for fine dining – richly textured & overseen by staff who run effortlessly on French polish. Don’t miss the astonishing set lunch, which is reckoned to be ‘the cheapest two-Michelin-star eating in town’.
