Square Meal Review of L'Etranger ?

For many of its devoted followers, L'Etranger remains at the cutting edge of cool, dishing out top-end contemporary food in minimalist, sexy surrounds. Others can't see the appeal and a few readers have recently left disgruntled at the ‘overpriced' menu, ‘over-engineered food' and ‘tired' service. Yet there's still a lot of love for this restaurant, and it's easy to understand why. Ducasse-trained chef/patron Jérôme Tauvron overlays French haute cuisine with modish Japanese influences – witness a starter of tuna tataki with foie-gras shavings and truffle ponzu jelly. Elsewhere, smoked duck breast with cep ravioli and garlic spinach yields gutsy Gallic flavours, while the much-fancied caramelised black cod with sushi rice and pickled ginger is a sweet, umami-rich joy. The wine list is mightily impressive in its breadth and depth, although prices may make you wince.

Champagne List of the Year 2013

A classical Champagne list, made up mostly of grandes marques. L’Etranger arranges its Champagnes by label, with a staggering selection of styles and formats from a range of great names – including Ruinart, Dom Pérignon (14 vintages), Krug, and Salon. A (wealthy) fizz-lover’s paradise.
