Squaremeal Review of Launceston Place ?

Over the years, Launceston Place has had a keen eye for up-and-coming chefs. Now, it’s the turn of Belgian Raphael Francois (former head chef at Hélène Darroze at the Connaught), who brings his gutsy take on French cuisine. From our experience, he’s still finding his feet. A starter of meaty crab mixed with tarragon and topped with mashed potato and seafood jus was a rich, silky joy: undoubtedly the standout. However, while smoked ibérico pork loin was a stunning piece of meat (arriving in a smoke-filled bell jar), the accompanying vivid carrot sauce and turned carrots lacked punch. For dessert, poached baby apple with pecan parfait was light and simple, though short on wow factor. As ever, Launceston Place’s sheer elegance, first-class service and stunning wine list is a major draw, and we found enough promise here to feel confident Francois will soon hit the heights set by his predecessors.

    The Boozy Bunch :: The Boozy Bunch Launceston Place Kensington

    Launceston Place is a well-established Michelin-starred restaurant, beloved of many food bloggers. My foodie friend Tirthankar and I decided to try out chef Tim Allen’s food recently.
    We arrived on a damp, drizzly and overcast London evening and it was a welcome relief to step into the restaurant. The decor is classy and formal with many diners dressed for a special occasion.
    As is our habit, Tirthankar and I went with the tasting menu. It’s a chance to eat more dishes and let the chef serve his best dishes.
