Square Meal Review of Les Trois Garcons ?

The crew working on last year’s Liberace movie Behind The Candelabra would have done well to check out the ‘incredible’ interior of Les Trois Garçons before shooting started – opulent doesn’t even begin to cover it. The high-camp decor, with handbags hanging from the ceiling and a menagerie of kitsch taxidermy, is a huge contrast to the ‘classic’ French cuisine on offer. Start with a fricassee of Dorset snails accompanied by pig’s trotter tortellini and a caramelised onion and garlic sauce, or a wedge of Sauternes-cured foie gras on a toasted brioche, before sampling, say, gratinated lobster with a ‘fabulous’ lobster butter sauce or a sturdy piece of British rose veal. Desserts ramp up the flair with popping candy providing the surprises in a decadent délice de chocolat, while the ‘very reasonably priced’ wine list majors on French bottles. Top-notch service, too.

  1. Had the boys behind Les Trois Garçons featured on BBC2′s The Restaurant Man, we could imagine narrator and restaurateur Russell Norman would be left exasperated with his head in his hands. This kitsch and quirky restaurant has been going for fourteen years, it’s co-owned and founded by friends Hassan Abdullah, Michel Lasserre and Stefan Karlson. They bought the building which was a run-down Victorian pub to live in in the late 90s and dramatically revitalised it, throwing huge lavish dinner parties in the basement of the building. Everyone said they should start up a restaurant, so they did. They had no business plan, concept or restaurant experience. But it worked...

    Samphire and Salsify :: Les Trois Garcons

    Le Trois Garçons in Shoreditch has been on my to-do list for a few years but for some reason I’ve never got round to eating there. I’ve always looked through their window and seen the handbags hanging from the ceiling and thought it’d be right up street – and I’m pleased to say it really was...

  3. Shoreditch, while famous for its underground nightclubs, isn’t exactly known for its top-level restaurants. However, this view could be set for a shake-up. Several restaurants in the neighbourhood are building reputations for both their cuisine and atmosphere and Les 3 Garçons is one of them. If the gritty, edgy surrounds lack a bit of refined style, then the interior of the restaurant certainly makes up for it. With the beginnings of a smart brasserie, the dining room has been transformed with crocodiles, giraffes and tigers...

    the dinersaur :: les trois garcons

    Les Trois Garcons is a bit of an institution in East London, having been around for over a decade when most of the area's establishments are generally much younger. Whilst the exterior of the restaurant looks like your run-of-the-mill, slightly run down pub (and very much over shadowed by its glitzy looking neighbour), the interior of the restaurant does feel like you've stepped into another world: one that is fantastical and really rather bizarre. Indeed, the interior of Les Trois Garcons is perhaps one of its most talked about features, with an eclectic assortment of statues and stuffed animals dotted around the place...

    The Hedonist :: Les Trois Garcons – Review

    I had been to the restaurant not long after it had opened in 2000 for a private event but only had a faint memory of the place, so I was keen to return. I had been struck by its quirky interior-stuffed tigers and hanging handbags displayed in a reconditioned Victorian pub-more than its food. Of course back at the turn of the century the trendification of Shoreditch had hardly begun and the Old Blue Last Pub wasn’t a venue for rock n roll wannabes but a proper East End boozer with bands on the weekend...
