SquareMeal Review of La Dame de Pic at Four Seasons Ten Trinity Square

This highly ambitious French from Anne-Sophie Pic has proved its worth by gaining a Michelin star in the 2018 guide. Combine that with its location in the grand former London Port Authority building, and this restaurant is a mighty proposition. The high-ceiling dining room is divided up by towering, mirror-clad pillars and handsome banquettes, and populated by hushed, affable staff serving City types and gastro-pilgrims. It could all be quite intimidating, but is softened by white surfaces and delicate paper art pieces. It goes without saying that prices are steep (all starters hover around £20) but, thanks to Pic’s pedigree and sheer inventiveness, the food is on the money. Head chef Luca Piscazzi (Pic visits monthly) takes British produce and combines it with supreme ingredients and techniques from across the world to conjure arresting, inventive flavours. Mackerel is delicately seared teppanyaki-style then combined with matcha dashi and sherry vinegar, for example, resulting in a beautifully presented balance of intense fish and light, tart flavours. Highlights include Pic’s signature berlingots (pasta parcels of goats’ cheese and mascarpone) and her fantastically constructed millefeuille dessert, although during our meal everything delivered eye-widening flavours. The staff will capably lead you to engaging wine pairings, which leaves our only criticisms being the hushed reverence of it all and slightly drafty dining room (unsurprising, given its dimensions). If gastronomic thrills are what you seek however, we doubt you’ll notice these quibbles.

Enter through the front door of this grand hotel and be transported to a world of serene elegance with architecturally arranged roses, puffs of jasmine scent in the air and a lush circular lounge bar adorned with Art Deco chairs arranged around a mirrored surfaced grand piano. I was thrilled to win Square Meal's amateur critic of the year 2017 and my prize was a 6 course tasting menu with wine flight at the Four Season's flagship restaurant. Seated at the bar, we start the evening with champagne and canapes then are guided to our table to continue a feast of lightly fragrant dishes. Each course building in delicious complexity and every plate of food prettier than the last. The wine was matched perfectly and the Sommelier described each glass with honesty and passion. We enjoyed chatting to him about which were our favourites, but I found it difficult to choose! All the staff were incredibly welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, swapping the meat dish for my pescatarian pallet. Thank you to La Dame de Pic, Four Seasons and Square Meal for a truly special treat. My husband and I certainly felt like celebrities for the evening! This restaurant is certainly the place to go if you want to impress a business client or a romantic dinner for two!

You'll be treated like a king (or queen) from the moment you walk through the door with surprises coming out from the chef (in addition to the courses you order) as the evening goes on. It's not 'cheap' but for a special meal, be it with a client or a loved one it's worth every penny as you'll be talking about it for years to come ....

Continental Diner platinum reviewer 02 April 2017

La Dame de Pic in London is one of the most profoundly impressing new restaurants to open in London recently. The attention to detail is perfect and the service and dining room are all perfect. It is not stuffy so imagine a relaxed fine dining room but with the pizazz of the new Four Seasons at 10 Trinity square as a backdrop with its lovely Rotunda Bar. Having said this la Dame de Pic, has its own personality and charm. If you are not city based this is worth a trip without a second's hesitation. The food may sound complex on the menu but is never fussy and beautifully integrated. Already the complimentary amuse-bouches show the extraordinary depth of talent in the kitchen. Most possibly the best modern French fine dining in the capital at the moment. The dishes have "London" twists, which are great fun but rest assured, they keep Madame Pic's and her team's amazing style. No kippers by the tower here.
