If you’ve ever visited the award-winning Roux at Parliament Square’s
private dining rooms, you know the clientele is usually made up of corporate types and Westminster lobbyists. Well, this autumn, the renowned restaurant is ditching its fancy plated dishes normally served in the PDRs and replacing them with family-styled sharing plates – ideal for groups.
The outpost has Michel Roux Jnr as its figurehead, but is headed up by 2009 MasterChef: The Professionals winner, Steve Groves. He has dug out the Roux family cook books and adapted original recipes to create a collection of big sharing plates for groups to get stuck into.
The new menu is available for £70pp (at least eight people), and better still, there is no extra booking fee required for the rooms. There are six different PDRs to choose from, which can accommodate anything from eight to 90 guests.
Despite the menu’s format change, French classics have thankfully been kept intact. Currently, it features the likes of curried mussels, ttoro (a rich fish stew), roast leg of salt marsh lamb, and apple tarte tatin. The menu will change with the seasons.
There’ll be a wine pairing option available for an added cost too – the wine list may be steeply priced but, believe us, it’s built to impress.
