Had an excellent dinner at Relais de Venise L’Entrecôte. The concept of a no menu restaurant sounded as gimmicky as eating in darkness but it turns out this concept has been popular in Paris for the past 50 years. I can't imagine many restaurants that have been around for half a century, let alone only serving one dish.
Once we had ordered ( rare & medium ) we were brought a small plate of french stick and a salad each with walnut dressing. The main course was brought to the table in two stages, ingeniously, to keep the steak and frites warm. Rowley's has a similar concept with it's own secret sauce although I actually prefer the buzzy City atmosphere to the formality of Jermyn Street, it was nice to have a conversation without being overheard or interrupted or even having to worry about what to order. Will L’Entrecôte maintain its popularity for 50 years in London ? At £20 a head I imagine it just might…
