Petrus #3 doesn’t appear to have a great deal in common with Petrus #2. GRH have quite rightly not tried to transport the vaulted and velvet grandeur of the dining room at the Berkeley in what was previously a pub. The dining room itself is a nice space with a dramatic glass centerpiece holding several hundred bottles of wine. Besides this central feature there isn’t a great deal to comment upon and the décor is rather unremarkable and slightly sterile. The art that adorned the walls of Petrus #1 long gone together, presumably with the £44k lunches. My companion (his third Petrus also), did comment that the majority of diners in the restaurant appeared to be visiting for a “posh meal” rather than regulars or on business which was surprising given the Belgravia location.
The menu was not disappointing, we were dining on a Friday lunchtime so had the choice of lunch menu, a la carte or tasting menu which were £30, £50 and £65 respectively. Each contained a decent variety of interesting dishes. The small copper pans of vegetables on the table were a nice touch and the quality of cooking was good – with sensibly portioned main courses of Roasted Beef Fillet and Pork Belly cooked with precision and particular expertise demonstrated by the pastry chef (although Space Dust and Liquid Nitrogen is like going to see a magician saw a lady in half).
Overall good, but more La Fleur-Pétrus than Pétrus itself.
