Squaremeal Review of Bibendum ?


There have been changes in the kitchen of late, but Bibendum still epitomises the values that made it a bastion of the London restaurant scene. A light refurbishment of the "airy" first-floor dining room has retained the iconic swagger of the Michelin man (whose image appears on the stained-glass windows, butter dishes and curved waiter stations), while the kitchen delivers impressive, seasonal Franglais food in pretty hefty portions. Our dressed crab was a perfect rendition pointed up with capers and shallots, while a dense slab of entrecôte was topped with a garlic and parsley crust and buttery slivers of bone marrow. Be warned that lighter options are thin on the ground, so conclude simply with lemon sorbet and a chilled vodka shot. A Coravin storage system means that many big-hitting wines are available by the glass – all deftly dispensed by suited waiters from the traditional school of Gallic hospitality.
