Our visit to Pied-e-Terre was a jovial start to the weekend so was already up against it in terms of meeting our high expectations. Eight courses later those expectations were not only joyfully met but exceeded, with a medley of innovative and refined cuisine, fine wine and excellent service in a darkly seductive atmosphere.
As a diner beginning to return to my vegetarian roots I decided to judge the finesse of Pied-e-Terre with the vegetarian dining menu which upon first sight evoked strong images of colour and flavour. Together with my partner a fellow vegetarian, and friends choosing the meat tasting menu we set off on our sensory journey. On my way I enjoyed a salad of piquant pickled vegetables, a juicy, ripe and flavour packed beetroot and Lancashire cheese bomb, a creamy ragout of wild mushrooms and toasted tarragon brioche, tart of rich and caramelised endive with fresh walnuts…there's more but I think your getting the picture! Essentially, If M&S were advertising the tasting menu you'd be all hot and bothered just by the sound of it. This really was a tantalisingly exciting and truly vegetarian menu expected of a Michelin starred restaurant and gladly superseding my own personal criteria.
In addition, service was friendly, with an entertaining sommelier for those of us taking the wine flights, accommodating and professional with dishes being smoothly swapped for the next course and information on each dish helping us to remember the plentiful menu.
The ambience is dark, richly textured and intimate making it perfect for romantic nights out and group dining alike.
A worthy nod to Shane Osborn and the front of house staff for a fantastic experience worthy of 2 Michelin stars and evident in every element of the night.
