I always love the transition from entering a restaurant to leaving it with the biggest grin on my face, having experienced food magic somewhere in the middle. Le Gavroche is one door you'll walk in and out of with utter satisfaction. A quick chat with the fantastic Michelle Roux Jnr makes this experience all the more enjoyable, with his passion for good food and even better hospitality evident from the core.
Having heard so much about the kitchen at No. 43 upper Brooke St, we entered with the curious excitement of children on a school trip. The decor struck me as odd and not in keeping with the style Michelle Roux Jnr purveys but that was quickly dismissed away when the real star presented itself; the food. Dishes such as the beautifully cooked fish in red wine sauce, with balsamic salsify and Jerusalem artichoke puree, and venison with dark chocolate sauce stole the show with their decadent presentation, delicious flavours and medley of textures.
As if these did not provide enough comfort, desserts from heaven followed in quick succession with a giant passion fruit souffle with white chocolate ice cream landing on our table with promise that followed through, bite after bite after bite…
Truly a much welcomed assault on all the senses and one you should experience at least once in your lifetime. Le Gavroche has certainly remedied the disappointment of Alain Ducasse.
