Squaremeal Review of L'Etranger ?

Its name translates as 'the stranger', and L'Etranger certainly stands out from the crowd in London. That said, its intriguing cross-cultural menu, "elegant" minimalist interiors and stellar Champagne list make it a go-to destination for the fashion-conscious Kensington crowd, with chain-mail curtains, mirrored walls and low lights adding to the sultry vibe. In the kitchen, chef-patron Jérôme Tauvron artfully combines French knowhow with Japanese flavours and a heavy dose of luxury to produce the likes of miso-marinated quail with mustard ice cream and pumpkin fondant or Wagyu sirloin with wild mushrooms and truffle salad. Desserts also dabble with the east-west theme, as in a chocolate fondant with green-tea ice cream. A 90g (and nearly £300) 'caviar trilogy' tempts the big spenders, while a 1,600-strong wine list promises fine drinking for all budgets. Hopefully, the odd comment suggesting L'Etranger has "lost its charm" is a one-off.

Former Champagne List of the Year

A classical Champagne list, made up mostly of grandes marques. L’Etranger arranges its Champagnes by label, with a staggering selection of styles and formats from a range of great names – including Ruinart, Dom Pérignon (14 vintages), Krug, and Salon. A (wealthy) fizz-lover’s paradise.

    The two restaurants Pascal and I have been to recently have played ear splitting music non stop and it made it impossible to hold a conversation or even hear yourself think - maybe I am just getting old, but I am really not keen on having supper in a nightclub. So when we walked into L'Etranger on Saturday night and it was peaceful and elegant with gorgeous chairs and soft lighting, Pascal and I thought we were in Heaven!

    L'Etranger opened in 2002 and the food is a combination of Japanese and French cuisine and the restaurant has won awards for their exceptional wine and champagne lists. Originally Pascal...
