Nobody in London cooks quite like Pascal Aussignac. His handsome Smithfield flagship doesn't look so very unconventional with its vast sprays of flowers and marble walls, but the food is as racy as it gets. Don't miss the ‘superb' foie gras in some form – perhaps in an off-the-wall Marmite-flavoured soufflé royale with soldiers. Aussignac's native Gascony informs the entire menu, though his culinary imagination is not bound by geography. It's risky stuff and not every idea comes off, but there are Michelin-starred thrills aplenty, whether you choose from the generous set lunch, monthly tasting menu (a trans-global tour) or a carte of unconventional dishes such as frog and chip, iced béarnaise ripple, cappuccino of black pudding, lobster and asparagus, squab pigeon on vine shoot embers or a sinful foie gras turrón dessert. Not surprisingly, the wine list is almost exclusively rooted in southern France – and very good it is too.
