Squaremeal Review of Les 110 de Taillevent ?

The rather stern-looking London sibling of Parisian big-hitter Le Taillevent relies on “charming service” to soften the edges of its dining room. But while the dark-green colour scheme conjures all the atmosphere of the House of Commons during a recess, this repurposed branch of Coutts bank also holds the promise of 110 “exemplary” wines by the glass. Several options are matched by price to each course, making bottle-free drinking intoxicatingly simple – though some tasting notes wouldn’t go amiss. Food-wise, dishes run from restrained green vegetable risotto to the top-hat extravagance of a vol-au-vent stuffed with lamb sweetbreads and crayfish. Pricing is pitched north of bistro territory, but a set menu of simplified options including, perhaps, sardines with garlic toast followed by sea bream a la plancha with mash and bouillabaisse jus, is always available. Desserts include soufflés of various stripes, and the appearance of Colston Bassett Stilton among the cheese options is surely the ultimate compliment from Paris to les rosbifs.

the food was truly gorgeous. I had the pumpkin soup, seabass. and chocolate sphere. beautiful presentation without pretension. the well earned confidence of taillevent paris. the wine pairings are fun--I recommend the smaller size glass (they call it a tasting size, but its really enough) . they have only been only been open a few days so the service is a bit spotty, but they are trying hard and this should smooth out quickly under the capable hands of the gallant manager-Giussepe Dewilde.

    The Food Judge :: Les 110 de Taillevent Bank on it

    I’d done a double take when I’d seen the hoardings around the old Coutts building with the word Taillevent plastered over them. It couldn’t be something to do with the legendary Taillevent restaurant in Paris, I thought, not here, opposite the back entrance of John Lewis.
    But I was wrong. Brand Taillevent was never going to venture into in the grungy gastropub arena, so you will not be surprised to learn that this is a formal brasserie, the twist being the one hundred and ten wines (the “110” in the name) served by the glass.
    Targeting a similar clientèle to its predecessor in title, this is an elegant,...

    The Hedonist :: Brasserie Les 110 de Taillevent - Review - The Hedonist

    Discrete and elegant, since 1941 Taillevent has been one of the mainstays of the Parisian gastronomic establishment. The Gardinier family who have owned the restaurant since 2011 have opened a much more price forgiving brasserie offer in Paris and now in London that echoes the original and takes advantage of the restaurant’s massive wine cellar.

    Sometimes I surprise even myself. I am not talking here of my witty eloquence. Nor of my transcendent photo taking skills. Nor of the almost implausible manner in which I weave these two together. Instead, it was a visit of a teetotaller to a restaurant known for its rather diverse and far reaching wine cellar. Guess my companion will have to make up for my lack.
