Square Meal Review of Pieds Nus ?

This temporary restaurant (running only until April 2014) has good pedigree. Not only in its owner, David Moore, who is behind Michelin one-starred restaurants Pied a Terre and L’autre Pied, but also in its location, the same Marylebone spot which housed Simon Rogan’s Roganic pop-up for two years. The name means ‘barefoot’ and is a nod towards the pared-back, ingredients-led and deliberately simple approach to cooking which is exhibited. As one might guess from dishes such as beef tartare with smoked eel, wasabi, and quail's egg, or 42 degree confit salmon, cauliflower and pink grapefruit, it’s not as simple as it seems. Vegetables and meat are treated with equal care: smoked, slow-cooked, dehydrated, crumbled, poached and left raw to build up intricate dishes that are as texturally exciting as they are packed with flavour. There’s a touch of Noma about the food on offer, but it certainly maintains its own identity, set off superbly by a confidently short selection of mostly natural wines.

    Agent Restauranteur :: Pied Nus – London W1U

    After a couple of entertainingly inventive cocktails at near-by Purl, I sauntered into Pied Nus with my favourite couple, Alex & Claire. The table was set for a brilliant evening. Literally. With breadsticks and everything. We started with some ‘Bacon and Onion Brioche, Black Onion Seed Flat Bread, Milk Loaf, Humus’ (£4.5) to whet our appetites, and then ordered almost everything on the menu. Dishes started arriving so quickly we had to ask for a pause to allow us to catch up. But that’s as far as it goes in terms of a negative. The meal was superb....

  2. I think i may have just found one of my favourite restaurants in London, it’s just a shame its only another pop-up. I have never really gotten the whole idea of pop-ups, unless its a one time wonder for a seasonal event, or long weekend. But for something more permanent then what do you do when its gone? That's eventually what's going to happen here - for how long it will be around, i'm not sure. Hopefully everyone else who comes to Pieds Nus will love it just as much as i do and they'll be forced to set up a permanent residency...
