One of my all time favourite meals ever, it had the wow factor and some! I will confess to being slightly star struck when Michel Roux Jnr wandered over to see how our meal was going but I soon got over this, he seemed to wander round at regular intervals and was very much ensuring his diners were having a good experience. In the end we were chatting away with him and having a giggle and this really made my experience complete,
Having said that, I am a fierce citic and it does take more than a celebrity chef to ensure my meal was worth it. The food was sublime, it was the type of experience I wouldn't want to repeat too regularly, it would stop being special for one thing and it was rich food -my arteries could certainly tell a tale afterward.
The cheese souffle was beautiful, I recommend this for cheese-aholics.
It was a hugely expensive evening, while we were busy chatting away to Roux Jnr, we may have inadvertently ordered more wine…this hiked the bill to over £500. But it WAS worth it for the life experience and the fantastic memory of a truly great night.
A small word about the restaurant. It's not a funky modern brasserie, it's a proper restaurant and kind of harked back to times of old (80's possibly!!) but I loved it. Male diners have to keep their jackets on, again I love this, it felt special and I was glad I had the new dress on. For a special occasion definitely but perhaps you might want to keep it that way, you wouldn't appreciate it if you could do it every week!
