I had wanted to go to le Gavroche for more years than I care to remember so expectations were naturally very high…unfortunately probably a bit too high as it turned out. Yes we had a lovely evening, yes the food, in the main, was great but there was just something… je ne sais quoi… Maybe it was the darkness of a basement after the brightness of an early summer's evening; maybe it was the laminate bound menu, maybe it was the waiting staff just reading the dish description from the menu when I couldn't decide between two dishes (perhaps they thought I was struggling with both the French and English wording), but whatever it was, I was just left with a small degree of sadness and disappointment that my expectations had not been met. I can imagine going again but to be honest, there's many others on my “repeat visit” list first…
