I am so impressed by Deux Salons that I could probably harp on endlessly about it's virtues, though I shall spare you the pain of having to listen to my musings. It's arrival has been somewhat muted, but perhaps the best things should remain a secret.
I love the entrance of the restaurant, very grand in a townhouse sort of way, but the menu is really the main draw. Unusually, it is one of the restaurants that literally has something to offer everyone… whether your preference be for bold or subtle flavouring, there are a myriad of dishes for you to choose from. Provenance is quite visibly a priority here and every ingredient is well sourced, including eggs from Clarence Court and Elwy Valley Lamb. Comfort food is available in abundance and my starter of onion tart with goat's cheese was delicious, not too sickly sweet and the pastry was perfection. My main course of salted belly pork with lentils was just what the doctor ordered, the belly meat meltingly sticky and tender with deliciously warming and wholesome lentils. I could die a very happy girl after such a meal.
Desserts are a very classic affair, with Paris Brest, Creme Brulee and Iles Flotantes all present on the menu. Not really my cup of tea, although I do love a good Creme Brulee, after such a hearty starter and main, why ruin the mea by eating more than necessary.
I would DEFINITELY go back to Les Deux Salons and I am currently trying to find the right occasion to do exactly this! Wonderful French cuisine, slow cooked, well sourced and quite reasonably priced too. Parfait!
