A welcome newcomer – Les Deux Salons takes on the much-tried French brasserie formula and delivers extremely well on (nearly) all fronts. A grand room, welcoming service, and outstanding food. Special mention to the lamb sweetbreads (sublime) and the ox cheek main course (meltingly tender).
Food alone deserves a 10, but unfortunately the wine was a slight let down. The approach – namely a shorter list with all wines available in 250ml carafes – is to be applauded. However the whites were served at near room temperature, the rhone red too young, and they'd run out of the St Emilion. This alone probably won't stop me returning – but they need to work on this, particularly with Terroirs just down the road.
On the whole a thoroughly enjoyable evening. I hope they can maintain high cooking standard when they're packed to the rafters…
