Square Meal Review of Sketch: Lecture Room & Library ?

Abandon your reserve as you step into Sketch – a surrealist wonderland full of dazzling delights. Stairs ‘melt’ into the hallway floor; a trip to the ladies loo finds you inside a giant, crystal-bedecked music box, while stucco ceilings and jewel-coloured armchairs point up the light-filled Lecture Room. Owner Mourad ‘Momo’ Mazouz and chef Pierre Gagnaire have created a space with a marvellous sense of theatre that manages to cosset and comfort while sending your taste buds into overdrive. Expect refined, multi-layered food and a ”total mastery of flavours”, with each dish comprising several delicate plates based on “superlative” ingredients. How about langoustines ‘addressed five ways’, Dover sole with cider reduction, banana mousseline, green curry and wild herb salad or a combo of roast venison involving cassis marmalade, stuffed turnip, tamarillo ice cream and much more? Thoughtfully matched wines are “beyond compare”, and staff look impeccable in their Savile Row tailoring.

    Samphire and Salsify :: Sketch : Lecture Room and Library

    Sketch in Mayfair is a bit like Pat Sharp’s Fun House – it’s a vast building which houses a whole host of different bars and dining rooms. There’s The Gallery – a lively gastro brasserie, The Parlour – a dazzling tea room, The East Bar – a secret and intimate cocktail room, The Glade – a chilled and relaxed bar and a collection of pod toilets which is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before (see below). However, my visit on this particular occasion was for lunch at the two Michelin starred Lecture Room and Library and we were both really excited...

  1. I’m not much of a gourmet and definitely not a Michelin star hunter but sometimes the occasion calls for it. And so I recently indulged in a dinner at Pierre Gagnaire’s sketch Lecture Room and Library, a short walk off Oxford Circus station. Honestly, the website didn’t tell me much apart from giving me the feeling it might be an overly pretentious place… I was in for a very positive surprise.

    Walking in, the girl at the entrance entertained us talking us through the art in the reception area, especially her favorite piece: a light art that spelt out LOVE if you moved your head quickly.,,

  1. Sketch, a stunning Georgian townhouse in Mayfair, must surely be London’s most eclectic artistic venue, which caters for relaxed drinks through to **2 star dining. In the grungy Parlour, guests lounge about to DJ sets with cocktails and top-end patisseries. The elegant Glade is a smarter way to take your afternoon tea in Asian forest setting. While the recently Martin Creed redecorated Gallery is a lively bistro for dining sophisticates, with the East Bar (and those famous toilets) off to the side. But where Sketch really makes a spectacle is in the Lecture Room.

    Pierre Gagnaire is master and controller of...

    Quiet eating :: Sketch | Quiet eating

    So one fine day, I decided to visit Sketch.

    What is Sketch you ask? Is that something that artists do? Just drawing and doodling given a fancy name so that they can charge you more? Sketch, at least least the restaurant, it actually 5 minute restaurants all housed in the same building. All entertaining very different styles and decor. From breakfast cafe to fine dining.

    It was the latter where my obviously exquisite tastes would lead me. Actually, that is a lie. I was going to Sketch based on the strong recommendations of a friend who’s taste in food has so far been impeccable. My taste...

Pierre Gagnaire

Although he says that his love of cooking took a while to develop, Pierre Gagnaire has matured into one of France's pre-eminent chefs, gaining three Michelin stars with both incarnations of his eponymous French restaurant. Born in 1950, he worked his way through various kitchens in France & the US before returning to cook at his father's restaurant, Le Clos Fleury near St Etienne, maintaining its Michelin star. At 30, he launched his own restaurant in St Etienne, gaining a second star in 1986 & a third in 1993. In 1996 he set up at the Hotel Balzac in Paris, regaining his three-star status within two years. He & restaurateur Mourad Mazouz launched the headline-grabbing Sketch in 2002.
