Square Meal Review of Coq d'Argent ?

Coq d’Argent’s Bar & Grill has been given a slightly more formal look of late, with revamped seating mimicking the restaurant’s urbane style and smart new furniture on the outdoor terrace. The roof gardens are lusher than ever, with aromatic climbing plants entwined around the trellises adding to the escapist charm of it all. In fine weather, this is still a top spot for sipping a glass or Nyetimber classic cuvée or a Coq d’Argent rum punch made with gold, white and overproof rum, three fruit juices and grenadine. At lunchtime, the full Grill menu offers upmarket sandwiches (confit tuna Niçoise, say) alongside spatchcock chicken with tarragon, herb-crusted cod and grilled rib-eye steaks with béarnaise sauce. There are snacks, tapas and mezze for evening grazing, plus an outdoor kitchen adding to the fun in summer.

Wine List Of The Year

A traditional list, but what sets it apart is the even-handed way in which it treats every country equally. It’s not just the A-list appellations of France that are clearly subdivided, but those of the New World, too. There’s a large, fairly priced by-the-glass selection, and also six wine flights. And this being the City, there’s no shortage of expense-account busting bottles, and diners looking for £1,000+ bottles won’t be disappointed.

    vialaporte :: Coq D’Argent // The City // London

    For most people, Coq d’Argent conjures up two images. The first is the verdant rooftop terrace, which is undeniably one of the best to enjoy an after-work drink when London is at its glorious, sunny best. The second image – owing to its location, is corporate City dining. Though perhaps there is more to the Coq than meets the eye? Whilst it’s true that the main dining room is well used by business folk, Coq d’Argent offers some extremely well priced menus and serves-up some very high quality food. Adding that up with the great design and the professional service, we think this restaurant needs to be discovered by more diners. The mushroom parfait is a wonderfully light, flavoursome starter. Beautifully presented, this colourful dish balances an earthy mushroom flavour with a rich coating of port jelly. Surrounding the parfait is a sprinkling of pickled baby vegetables that have been carefully sliced into crisp ribbons. The effect is both rich and refreshing, and is lifted with a hint of truffle in the vinaigrette...

  2. An invitation to try a seasonal truffle menu at Coq d’Argent led to me discovering what a crème brûlée is really supposed to taste like and where for an impeccable wine and dine in the City. My recent and first time visit to City restaurant, Coq d’Argent, was one of my most exquisite dining experiences of the year. And as 2013 winds down and I think back to some of the finer meals I’ve had since January, that’s really saying a lot! I was there to have a taste of a limited run seasonal dish of creamy mushroom tagliatelle with a selection of white and black truffles. When booked ahead, the dish is to be served tableside by Head Chef Mickael Weiss himself shaving copious amounts of your preferred truffle over the top of your pasta. In my case, the opportunity to try the dish came by way of a very accommodating last minute booking, and Weiss was not on hand to preside over my plate (I’m not even sure the dish was officially available yet). Nonetheless, my truffled-up plate of umph was gorgeous, yielding long-lasting depth of marvelous flavour...
