Pied a Terre is both London and the UK’s longest standing independent Michelin starred restaurant, and it shows in the quality and style. Headed up by both owner David Moore and executive head chef Asimakis Chaniotis, Pied a Terre is an institution that remains classic but innovative, its nine-course vegan feast just one example of how this institution isn’t afraid to move with the times. The multi-floored venue boasts a chic and demure exterior but inside, stylish simplicity meets thoughtful lavishness.
Pied a Terre boasts a wide range of private dining spaces, all of which come with a butler style service and can accommodate a wide ranging number of guests. A sultry ground floor front room and a first floor kitchen table can each accommodate up to eight guests while a second floor private dining room can accommodate between four and 16. Each space has its own discreetly chic style. The kitchen table feels fresh and relaxed and extremely personal, as though you have imagined the most perfect kitchen and somehow convinced people to serve you immaculate food. The second floor dining room is opulent and regal, perfect for a memorable evening.
Asimakis, only twenty eight, is an unsurprising choice as head chef. His ability to pair modern French cuisine with his own Greek heritage, utilising some of the best British produce as he goes, is matched by a very real enthusiasm for his cuisine shown as he forages for fresh samphire and makes his own olive oil - find these at the restaurant. Pied a Terre’s tasting menus, which can range from as few as three courses to as many as 10, are available in each space as is their list of 800 wines. If you’re looking for somewhere to host a private dinner or to simply enjoy a private dining experience with good food, there are few better options than Pied a Terre.
