Square Meal Review of Pied à Terre ?

The unsung hero of London’s top-end gastronomic scene, this purring Fitzrovia aristocrat reaps unbridled praise from readers who love its “impeccable service”, fastidiously chosen wines and “exquisite food”. The intimate townhouse location sets a refined and consummately civilised tone that’s matched by staff with the confidence to lead from the front. Marcus Eaves’ dynamic cooking is rooted in the classical French repertoire but his food is bang up-to-date, and everything from ace breads to a dazzling dessert of olive oil and lime parfait shows an effortlessly self-assured poise. There’s technical virtuosity too – just consider melting roast quail breasts and crispy leg glammed up with a mini Kiev, Douglas Fir purée and hazelnut vinaigrette or pan-fried turbot embellished with fennel compote, lightly poached prawns, fennel and herb nage. “You only live once, therefore I recommend the tasting menu”, says one fan – although the set lunch is still one of the best Michelin-starred deals in town.

    Edesia Is Hungry - Food of the Gods :: Pied a Terre

    We recently enjoyed a lunch at Pied a Terre in Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia.  As my wifes birthday fell on a Monday this year, it required a little more research to find somewhere open on Mondays. Luckily Pied a Terre, somewhere we have passed numerous times and have been meaning to visit, was not only open on Monday lunch time, but also had a 6 course tasting menu available for £49 a head.We started with a selection of canapes, with stand outs being a battered mussel, a salty crunchy delight of a bite, and a wonderful flavour rich celeriac panna cotta for my wife. We tried a few breads including an excellent brioche...

    The Celeriac :: Pied a Terre, Charlotte Street

    I recently ventured out for a spot of Michelin star dining, as one does. The restaurant of choice was Pied a Terre, which I think is French for “the Frenchest restaurant you will ever go to, in your life, ever”. Yes, Pied a Terre is probably Frencher than actual France is. The staff are carved entirely of garlic, the tables rest atop giant baguettes and if you look closely you will see that the walls have been painstakingly constructed of thousands of compressed snails. This isn’t true, but it gives you some idea as to exactly how French this restaurant is. Very French. The head chef, Marcus Eaves, is not French,...

    Samphire and Salsify :: Pied à Terre

    Pied à Terre is a Michelin starred restaurant in Fitzrovia – all the good places are in Fitzrovia these days! It’s owned by David Moore (you might remember him from the TV series The Restaurant with Raymond Blanc) who also owns Michelin starred L’Autre Pied and the new pop-up Pieds Nus in the old Roganic site, both in Marylebone.

    I first visited the restaurant a few years ago when it had two stars under head chef Shane Osborne and I remember it being one of the most enjoyable meals I’ve eaten. I was looking forward to seeing if it was just as good with the new head chef Marcus Eaves at the helm...

  1. Boasting a lunch time deal that is reputedly ‘the best value Michelin star menu in London’ conjured up by Head Chef Marcus Eaves and his team, the term ‘pied a terre’ is given by the French to a small second home in the city – if the welcome, service and our leisurely and extended stay was anything to go by, it certainly lived true to its name. My companions and I...

  1. So I am charged with finding a Michelin-starred restaurant at short notice, to fill the Robuchon-sized gap and don’t you start on the whole Michelin thing – I know. I do the OpenTable scroll of desperation and decide I don’t want to go to The Square, or Hibiscus again and then something deep in my subconscious makes Pied à Terre float to the surface. Sometimes something has been there for so long that you don’t even think about it; the bright lights of all those new openings make you blind to the bleedingly obvious.
    And I have always meant to try Pied à Terre. I’d been to L’Autre Pied a few times early on,...

  1. I have a long list of restaurants that I want to go to. It gets longer by the week with so many new openings. Pied à Terre is a one michelin starred restaurant, surprisingly it is not on my top of the list to go. Pied à Terre is the "bigger" sister restaurant to L'autre Pied which I visited earlier in the year and I had a great experience there. With Marcus Eaves as the head chef, I had high expectations, especially after L'autre Pied.
