Do you know the feeling to really “want to like a place”? Well that was my approach when first going to l'Étranger. The space is not all bad, but it is darker and smaller than it looks from the street. The much raved-about wine list really is quite long but prices are nothing short of astronomical. Then came the food. Over engineered, over hived severely over priced and an absolute and utter failure. It was so grotesquely bad that it was difficult to comprehend. Tiny portions come with the nouvelle cuisine (although this is actually rather “fusion cusine”), so no surprise here, but there were both technical shortcomings and poorly sourced ingredients topped of by a clear “we don't care” attitude. It is then, given the shockingly low quality of the food, even more difficult to remind oneself that this is a £200 for two restaurant.
