Squaremeal Review of Chez Bruce ?

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016The Squaremeal postbag is full of praise for Bruce Poole’s “phenomenal” restaurant, which is as reliable and professional as ever, with its “fantastic” service and wine list, and “first class” ambience. The vibe is surprisingly laid-back: many customers wear jeans, and bentwood chairs serve as seating. But there’s nothing casual about the cooking. Classic French techniques, top-quality ingredients and a British/European sensibility inform the daily changing menu. Expect seasonal ingredients, prepared and cooked to their best advantage. We’ve always found the combinations of flavours and textures to exceed the sum of their parts. A starter of homemade tagliatelle, served with an earthy duck ragout, packs proper punch; main-course cod is roasted to textbook crustiness while still pearlescent inside, and arrives with olive oil mash – colour and acidity being added by roasted tomato and courgette. Puds (quince and almond tart with lemon curd; apple and blackberry jelly with cinnamon beignets) are classy and indulgent, but we’d be sad to miss one of London’s best cheeseboards. Have both.

    Food Expectations :: Food Expectations Chez Bruce Review

    Chez Bruce is another restaurant that had been on my list for a long time, but Wandsworth always seemed so far away. Since recently moving to Parsons Green, it has suddenly become a lot closer, so I reserved it for a trip with my mom, when she was visiting form Brazil.
    The restaurant looks like a French bistro from the outside and is somewhat plain, but very nice and cosy inside. They serve either two or three course set menus at &41.50 and &49.50, a good deal considering the quality.

    Connie Consumes :: Chez Bruce

    Exhaustion has overtaken my body and brain. Three weeks into a new job after having been a lady of leisure since Christmas, the 9 – 5.30-ish grind sandwiched between one hour commutes is a shock to the system. I’d be lying if I said there hasn’t been at least five minutes in every day where I’ve yearned to have my funemployment lifestyle back… No morning alarms, cups of tea in bed while I indulged in my morning dose of social media, then the rest of the day to do as I pleased; living the dream!
    January was reserved for holiday mode while the start of February was all about blog makeover mode, but by the time mid...

Bruce Poole

One of the least starry of London’s big-name chefs, Bruce Poole has run Chez Bruce on the site previously occupied by Marco Pierre White’s Harvey’s since 1995. The Surrey-born history graduate keeps media appearances to a minimum, focusing instead on his perennially popular Wandsworth Common flagship and its sibling restaurants The Glasshouse in Kew and La Trompette in Chiswick, which he opened with Nigel Platts-Martin in 1999 and 2001 respectively.
