Square Meal Review of Koffmann's at The Berkeley ?

French master Pierre Koffmann is still at the top of his game, and lovers of “grande cuisine” are thrilled by this cheery, split-level dining room with its pastel shades, smart trappings and a riot of sunny flowers straight out of a Van Gogh canvas. “It may lack razzmatazz”, but compensates with an “incredibly friendly” vibe and quiet professionalism – not to mention a serious all-French wine list and a roll call of “punchy” flavours from M. Koffmann’s back catalogue. Specials change daily, but look to the main menu for near-faultless signature dishes: chicory adds some earthy, bitter accents to hot crusted foie gras, daube of ox cheek is braised to melting softness, and the legendary pied de cochon appears in all its sticky glory – slow-cooked, boned and stuffed with sweetbreads and morels. After that, puds such as tarte au citron and dark chocolate mousse have their heart in the 80s, but no one minds a jot.

  1. After having visited Koffman’s before last year (see post) and feeling very satisfied with the meal, I was keen to try it again this winter.

    The food at Koffman’s is best described as ‘deluxe food porn’ or ‘posh comfort food’ . The flavours are so soulful, the cooking so skillful and the setting so posh, that it just leaves the visitor with that moorish feeling...

    Nordic Nibbler :: Koffmann

    It's not often you get the chance to eat at the restaurant of a genuine culinary legend, but chef Pierre Koffmann is just that. His first restaurant, La Tante Claire, opened in Chelsea in 1977 and went on to gain three Michelin stars, which it held for 15 years until it moved location to the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge. There the restaurant continued until 2003 when Koffmann retired from cooking (or so he thought). The chefs that have trained under Koffmann read like a who's who of Britain's Michelin hall of fame: Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing, Eric Chavot, and Tom Kitchin. So it was with a...

  1. Koffmann’s has been my guilty pleasure for a few years now. I didn’t live in London at the height of Pierre Koffmann’s culinary reign, but if Koffmann’s at the Berkeley is anything to go by, I can easily understand what all the fuzz was about. In a year when London has been bombarded with openings of French bistros, brasseries and wine bars, Koffmann’s at the Berkeley is the yardstick by which others are measured against...

    vialaporte :: Koffmann’s // Knightsbridge // London

    Sitting alongside Marcus Wareing’s **2 star restaurant in the Berkeley Hotel is Pierre Koffmann’s self-titled French brasserie. Though don’t be fooled into thinking that this modest restaurant will be a disappointment beside its illustrious neighbour. Koffmann is a chef who knows a thing or two about elevating bistro food up to the highest level...

    Quiet eating :: Koffman's | Quiet eating

    With a new year, time to try something I had been hearing about for a long time. No, it’s not what you are thinking. It’s a new restaurant!

    Koffman’s, a restaurant so well known (at least within my circle of friends) to be termed an institution, suddenly seemed to pop up in my inbox offering a special pre-threatre dinner for only GBP28 for 3 courses. A steal I thought if reminiscence of other diners was anything to go by. A little new year’s present to me.

    First up, an amuse bouche. A thin pizza bread...

Pierre Koffmann

Pierre Koffmann came to Britain from Gascony in 1970, subsequently working at Le Gavroche and The Waterside Inn before opening La Tante Claire, which launched in Chelsea in 1977. Later, he relocated the restaurant (complete with its three Michelin stars) to The Berkeley, where it remained until 2003. In 2009, he was tempted out of retirement for a ‘pop-up’ at Selfridges, after which he returned to The Berkeley to open Koffmann’s.
