Square Meal Review of Brasserie Chavot ?

It’s been a long while since the charismatic Eric Chavot quit the Michelin-starred world of Knightsbridge’s Capital Hotel, but he’s back in the high life again with this ‘tremendous’ self-named brasserie tacked onto the side of The Westbury hotel. Set in a ‘stunning’ room with mosaic floors, soaring Corinthian columns and glittering chandeliers, it feels more St Petersburg than St-Germain – although deep-red leather furnishings and big mirrors are reminders of the culinary theme. The long menu touts emphatically rustic, regional dishes without flimflam – deep-fried soft-shell crab with creamy aïoli, ‘delightfully flavoursome’ daube of beef, grilled côte de porc with honey and mustard (‘wonderfully smoky charred flavours’) or sea bream with tapenade dressing and fennel. For afters, the crème brûlée and profiteroles are hard to trump. Spot-on service, relatively painless prices and a wine list above the ‘brasserie’ norm complete a very reliable Mayfair package.

  1. Chef Eric Chavot is best known for his ten-year stint at the two-Michelin starred restaurant at The Capital Hotel where he offered some of the finest French haute cuisine to be had in London. The French born chef trained with some of the most famous names in the culinary world including the likes of Pierre Koffmann at La Tante Claire and Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. He also worked with Marco Pierre White before venturing out on his own with The Capital. The Capital Restaurant closed in 2009 after which Chef Chavot left for a two year sojourn in The US. But he came back, opening his self-named Brasserie Chavot in The Westbury Hotel in 2013. It’s a world away from the formality of The Capital...

  3. That's not a French cuff shirt, you knowJerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld episode “The Strike”)Traditional French brasserie, opulent, lovely chandeliers, and impeccable decor. That's what you will find in Brasserie Chavot. Classic French cuisine with a modern twist by chef Eric Chavot. One Michelin star and 3 AA Rosettes but surprisingly not too busy on Saturday lunchtime.The DinningFor starters we got the deep fried soft shell crab with whipped aioli. It was amazing, perfectly cooked, the aioli was spot on, delicate flavours and a perfect execution. The other starter was the crab mayo and avocado, really refreshing, lovely execution, a great start.Soft Shelf TimesFor main we tried the steak tartare, it was really nice, delicate, probably a bit too much going on, too many components but overall a nice dish. And also the Rib eye with béarnaise, this was the highlight of the meal, it was superb, bone marrow as surprise addition, and the garlic and parsley sauce in top of the marrow was perfect. Beef perfectly cooked, great searing, medium rare, the flavour of the ribeye was amazing, no need of the béarnaise or any sauce.TartareSteak TimeRefined place, great service, spectacular food, classics perfectly executed. Probably the best restaurant I have tried in 2014.Brasserie ChavotT: 020 7183 6425French cuisineApprox Damage: £55ppArea: MayfairBorough: City of WestminsterTwitter: brasseriechavot

    Samphire and Salsify :: Brasserie Chavot

    Brasserie Chavot is the creation of Eric Chavot (a former two Michelin starred chef) which sits in the Westbury Hotel in Mayfair – not that you’d be able to tell as it has its own entrance which feels miles away from the actual hotel. The Westbury also houses Michelin starred Alyn Williams which is well worth a look-in. The dining room was rather splendid with a detailed mosaic floor, large glass chandeliers and red leather banquette seating along one side. It was a very pretty place to sit...

  5. There are always a few surprises when a new Michelin Guide is released. This time around I have to admit I wasn’t expecting Brasserie Chavot to be awarded a star, but I’m not sure why because they have all the credentials. Executive chef/owner Eric Chavot previously held two stars at Capital and top critics like Jay Rayner and Giles Coren have been raving about the food at his brasserie ever since it opened earlier this year. Why then, you may be thinking, were we remotely surprised?...

  6. I was bigging it up for C, as you do. It’s good, I said, gutsy Brasserie-style food. Smart, an elegant room, a bit hotel-y, but a restaurant for grown-ups. Highly competent, I said, you’ll like it. Great chef, you know, that Eric Chavot. He’s a star...

    doughnuts&swine :: Brasserie Chavot, Mayfair

    The only reason to foolishly undertake a marathon is surely to enjoy nice food in its aftermath completely guilt free. Having ‘won’ the ballot to ‘run’ the London marathon, I planned a manageable training programme which of course I didn’t follow. So, at mile 16.5 when the going got very tough, the only thing that kept me going (along with the support), was the celebratory dinner I had planned at Brasserie Chavot.Brasserie Chavot has received substantial praise since it opened. The plaudits have been merited; and having dined there on a recent Saturday night, I considered it to be an excellent option for dining post-marathon primarily because of the food, but also because the red leather seats would be comfortable enough to soothe my weary body. At first sight the Brasserie is a little piece of France plonked into Conduit Street. Tables for couples’ or parties of four line one wall divided by cream lamps; whilst in the centre are larger round tables for bigger groups. The red leather is contrasted with a cream hue on the walls; grand chandeliers hang from the ceiling permeating a low lighting. There is a lovely symmetry to the venue and aesthetically the venue is pleasing as are the herbs found dotted at the front window – a nice touch. The aesthetics of the building are matched by the friendliness of the staff. But I suppose at some stage I should refer to the food. Starters comprised of ceviche of scallops, sardines escabeche, and home-cured salmon with a gravlax dressing. Baked sourdough was required to mop up the vinaigrette that accompanied the scallops and the gravlax dressing that accompanied the salmon. Each excelled. For our mains, we had venison, duck, and tiger prawns, with sides of pommes frites and creamy mashed potato. The venison, medium rare was served with honey glazed root vegetables on a bed of cabbage coated in butter. The rump of venison excelled; a fine piece of meat indeed. The tiger prawn was presented on a bed of chickpeas and chorizo and was very tasty indeed. The duck looked the part, however my friend had it demolished before I could taste. This was sad for me. The fries were liberally salted, as any good fries are. I would go so far as to say they may be the best fries I’ve enjoyed in London and the portion is big so plenty to go round. There was of course time for dessert. I had the crème brulee, same as my last visit; whilst the others had some chocolate concoction covered in cream. I was too focused on the crème brulee and the pain emanating from my legs to pay any attention to the other dessert but I was duly informed that it was very nice.   The bill, all in for 3 people and 12.5% service amounted to £202. This included a bottle of champagne, 3 course and coffees. The food, service, and décor all made it very much worthwhile. I shall return, this time without my medal.

  8. Like Pierre Koffman, Bruno Loubet and Jason Atherton, Chavot has thus far been known more for his Michelin standard haute cuisine cooking. Like the aforementioned chefs he has now decided to go open a more rustic restaurant...
