Alexis Gauthier's ultra-civilised, fine-dining approach is in stark contrast to Soho's frenetic culinary merry-go-round. Set in a discreet townhouse, it sweeps diners into three serene floors of calming creams, cosseting linens and sleek lines, while the ‘stunning' modern French cuisine wows from the word go. Gauthier's ‘mind-blowing' eight-course tasting menus (including a highly praised vegetarian version) sit alongside a carte divided into various ‘plats'. Choose from a repertoire that highlights the chef's light touch and ‘immaculate attention to detail' – perhaps ravioli filled with subtle hedgerow herbs in a citrus infusion, steamed halibut with tomato fondue and a dusky smoked egg yolk, or soft duck breast and fondant leg with glazed turnips, caramel and peppery lemon jus. The formal atmosphere plays to an older, business audience, but there is nowhere else like it in Soho – and the set lunch/pre-theatre menu is a steal.
