My recent trip to Alain Ducasse was certainly a memorable one and I'm happy to say for all the right reasons. The dining room is bright and airy with well spaced tables giving you enough privacy for your business deals or flirting – or perhaps both? It has a nice modern feel without trying too hard but manages to retain an air of formality at the same time. From sitting down to leaving, the food and accompanying wine was exquisite and the constant supply of amuse bouches between courses a fine touch. John dory goujonettes with coconut and curry sauce were an interesting starter that worked surprisingly well and the roast rack and saddle of lamb suitably fab enough to keep my attention until I took on the selection of French cheese. With the chefs little delicacies coming so frequently a three course dinner seemed like a ten-course and the gentleman coming round with the sweet and bon-bon trolley at the end just added to the delights. Prices can run high but with a fixed price for two,three or four-course meal you do at least know what to expect. Make good use of head sommelier Hugues Lepin and his team who matched excellent wines by the glass for us with each course.
