Square Meal Review of L'Autre Pied ?

A distinct, complex and richly detailed approach gives Michelin-starred L’Autre Pied’s loyal following much to enjoy, although unprepared first-timers may see it as something of a time capsule in increasingly hip Marylebone. Still, the slightly tired interior is offset by warm, knowledgeable service and a host of tiptop extras, which enhance the good value provided by fixed-price deals. Sound combinations and picture-pretty arrangements abound – witness a pleasing dish of glazed endive and roast foie gras, layered with garnishes (in this case, salt-baked turnips, Brazil nuts, pineapple and nutmeg in various iterations). It might sound like sensory overload, but it’s never boring. There’s no skimping on top produce either, including fabulous fruit in desserts such as Tulameen raspberries with banana and passion fruit sorbet, elderflower granita and coconut.  In short, this is “gorgeous, unusual food from a very talented chef”. Wine is taken equally seriously, and help is at hand to match those unexpected flavours.

  1. I have yet to form a distinct opinion on Michelin stars. Sometimes they just seem to be a reason to hike up prices and serve small portions, and after a disappointing experience at Lima last year, I was a little skeptical about L’Autre Pied. But it was my cousin’s graduation dinner (the one who gave us the blood orange risotto), so along I went. After all, he did take me to the fantastic Arbutus last year, another Michelin star holder, so I was confident in his judgment.

    When we arrived at L’Autre Pied, there was nobody else in the restaurant, as it was only 6.15pm. As the evening continued though, all the...

    Mitziesbubble :: Understated excellence at L’Autre Pied

    Upon entering L’Autre Pied, on a rather cold and blustery day, I noticed that it wasn’t too dissimilar to its big sister. For instance, swathes of black across a darkly lit and intimate room but there were subtle differences such as invisible table linen, which told you this was a more chilled affair. Thankfully this laid back approach did not extend to the food and by course no.2 of our tasting menu we quickly saw why it was awarded and has retained its star...

    The Cutlery Chronicles :: L'Autre Pied

    My ideal location for a birthday treat (of which this meal was), would be an informal and relaxed restaurant with no pretenses serving Michelin quality food. And L’autre Pied in Marylebone achieves that in spades.

    The kitchen is commandeered by head chef Andy McFadden and his seven course tasting menu was the agenda for the evening. On arrival we were seated by a very charming maitr’d who recommended a rather spectacular glass of Italian red, the name of which I failed to note. An amuse bouche began proceedings consisting of silk thin poppy seed pastry topped with cool, smooth and meaty chicken liver parfait...

    Wrap Your Lips Around This :: L’Autre Pied

    There is something sweet about the Michelin starred L’Autre Pied. That the 7 course tasting menu is 50% off prompts a dark curiosity which is almost perverse in nature. This is the kind of peering interest you might have when something unfortunate happens, and you relish every detail. The thrill of playing spectator to L’Autre Pieds inability to fill tables is too delicious to miss.

    To my chagrin, the night starts off on entirely the wrong foot with a variety of freshly baked bread. The generosity with the walnut loaf, sweet onion brioche, and parmesan bread is vexing. To further undermine my voyeuristic...

  1. Nestled on a quiet side street just round the corner from chi-chi Marylebone Lane and boasting a Michelin star, L’Autre Pied offers well executed and beautifully presented food in a surprisingly relaxed setting. Its fantastic value set lunch menu also means that, although still a treat, it isn’t as dauntingly expensive as its more famous sister restaurant, Pied à Terre. I was recently taken to L’Autre Pied by a friend as a belated birthday present, and just couldn’t resist using the experience as fuel for another restaurant review.

    The décor at L’Autre Pied has a casual elegance, with sleek...

  1. Open since 2007, L’Autre Pied is a well established restaurant in the London dining scene. A three day trip to the capital gave us the perfect opportunity to sample some of London’s best restaurants. The decision to visit L’Autre Pied was made after reading a number of rave reviews from some of London's top food bloggers.

    When opened, big things were expected due to links with the much acclaimed sister restaurant, Pied á Terre. Both restaurants are owned by David Moore. In the early years it was talented chef Marcus Eaves in control of the kitchen and his hard work was rewarded with a Michelin star in 2009....

    Nomface :: Nomface: L'Autre Pied, London

    It's not often you find a Michelin starred deal for a 7 course tasting menu for £31. Hence I snapped up the deal for L'Autre Pied, sister restaurant of Pied à Terre, who both hold 1 Michelin star with L'Autre Pied based in Marylebone which makes the deal more remarkable.

    The interior is relaxed but rather weary looking. I like the fact that there is no tablecloth in sight, ideal for a casual lunch...

    There is a kind of excitement that brings expectations whenever I go to a Michelin starred restaurant – and expectations, whether in food or anything else in life, are never helpful. This much I knew. The only question was whether L’Autre Pied would be good on the dance floor...
