L'Autre Pied

I was taken here recently by clients, I wasn't paying so don't know what the bill was like. But I did have high expectations as I had dined very recently at Pied-a-Terre their second restaurant on Charlotte Street, and I believe it has two stars in Michelin.

Similarly to Pied-a-Terre it is a menu based on the finest produce - it is worked and elaborate, but tempered with a fine balance of texture and taste. The dishes are all beautifully turned out, but my crab dish felt a touch on the small side, being a bloke I would probably have thought that if there was twice as much on the plate. Other dishes included foie gras, lobster and a gazpachio.

Main course was lamb best end with slow cooked lamb shoulder (I think) with polenta on the side, courgette puree and black olive, very tasty. Other mains included, pollock, guinea fowl and plaice- the pollock came in for the portion complaint but everyone enjoyed the flavours.

I finished with a wonderful crumble and the rest of the party had a warm banana emulsion which was billed as a signature dish and was excellent. I think this restaurant is most certainly worth a detour!!

Sunday lunch was a lonely event, only about 15 covers in restaurant, it's a shame because the food is good but you struggle to enjoy it without the atmosphere that comes with a body of people.

I thought the food very good but the wine list is limiting as they only have Bordeaux wines.
