Find this excellent restaurant in the compact town house, once occupied by Richard Corrigan (Lindsay House) - the restaurant is set over two floors.
Chef/proprietor Alexis Gauthier built his reputation in the West End at Roussilllon (q.v.), and those used to his cooking there, won't be disappointed.
Although, in the style of all good restaurants, menu's change seasonally, a Spring snapshot brought 'Very Green Ravioli' - wild rocket, lovage, dandelion, green asparagus, Earl Grey/Yuzu infusion; 'Scottish Langoustines with Foie Gras, Girolle & Crunchy Lettuces' and 'Artichoke & Bass' - marinated bass, purple artichokes, fennel, lime & mustard dressing' amongst the starters.
'Monkfish Loin cooked with Chicken Skin, Young Turnips & White Asparagus, Chicken Jus & Vinegar'; 'Squab Pigeon with Meyer Lemon & Caramelised Walnuts, Fondant Potatoes, Broad Beans & Thyme' and 'Berkshire Black Pork with Young Carrots, Light Chili, Coriander, Coconut & Pig Jus' listed on the mains.
Vegetarians have their own menu.
Desserts maintain the high standard with perhaps 'Passion Fruit Soufflé with White Chocolate Ice Cream & Exotic Crisp' and 'Louis XV' - roasted spiced pear with brioche perdu & yoghurt sorbet there to tempt you - although their selection of well-kept cheeses is also recommended.
Professional, friendly service.
