Squaremeal Review of La Brasserie Mayfair ?


La Brasserie Mayfair is the latest attempt to make something work in the tricky street-level site beneath Fakhreldine, London’s swishest Lebanese restaurant. Gone is the previous effort, 1001 Nights (which lasted about half that time), and in its place comes a Franco/Italian/Spanish brasserie. The budget clearly didn’t stretch to replacing the shiny, black nightclubby interior, which contrasts wildly with the casual cooking on offer. Mainstream dishes such as garlicky gambas al pil pil, spaghetti with tomato and basil, croque monsieur, beef fillet with green peppercorn sauce, and chocolate fondant seem designed for out-of-towners who happen to stumble upon the spot. Helpful staff and a Zone 1 location should attract locals, although details such as a typo-ridden menu, wacky pricing (lentil soup is £6.50, yet poulet paillard with roast potatoes and spinach comes in at under £12), and a perfunctory, vintage-free wine list might make them think twice.

Nice decor and that's it !! The restaurant was practically empty on a Friday night apart from ourselves and 2 other tables. Food was just ok but no way justified the ridiculous prices. Worst service I've ever had and I eat out about 4 times a week !!! The whole experience was just terrible and I'm shocked they manage to stay in business.
