Les Petits Gourmets 1

Squaremeal Review of Les Petits Gourmets ?

Like its sibling in Knightsbridge, this relaxed neighbourhood rendezvous is an offshoot of Les Gourmets des Ternes in Paris – an iconic eatery with a classy 8th arrondissement address and a star-spangled clientele to match. Despite a recent name change, it remains an alluring prospect for Little Venice locals, who take advantage of its 4pm opening for a glass of wine and a plate of charcuterie (we'd recommend perching at the high counter by the window for some people watching). In the evening, the place morphs into a romantic bistro with low lights, close-packed tables and a menu of traditional favourites such as a soothing veal normande, crisply sautéed scallops provençale, hulking steak-frites, boeuf bourguignon and enduring homemade puds including crème caramel. Plenty of patriotic wines by the glass and carafe help to make this 
a little bit of unspoilt France in W9.

A tiny piece of France, transplanted to London

Maybe a few decades ago the French felt that they deservedly had the most bragging rights when it came to culinary superiority. Times have changed though. Japan can claim to have more three Michelin-starred restaurants than France and in London, ask many diners what style of cuisine they currently rate most highly, and – best guess – it won’t be French. Nonetheless, the sense of privilege, the smug knowledge that they perhaps still believe themselves to be the top dogs when it comes to all things...

    Got To Be Gourmet :: Dinner at Les Gourmets des Ternes, Maida Vale | Got To Be Gourmet Food Blog

    One of my favourite restaurants in the world has to be Les Gourmets des Ternes in Paris – the French team at 2K were lovely enough to take me there on a couple of occasions when we were hosting press events in Paris. Rather inconspicuous from the outside, the restaurant is in fact very popular and usually needs a reservation. I was always glad to have the French team there with me – even though I studied French at University, the experience at this restaurant can be quite overwhelming. The menu is all handwritten in French and the attitude is very much ‘go with the flow’ – on the occasions I’ve been there, big portions...

    The original Les Gourmets des Ternes in the 8th arrondissement in Paris opened in 1962 and has a long history of serving celebrities and politicians alike. The walls on Les Gourmets des Ternes are adorned with pictures of famous guests, the likes of which include
 Sharon Stone, Jack Nicholson and Nicolas Sarkozy.
    Les Gourmets des Ternes in Knightsbridge is the younger sibling of the Parisien original, and the ground floor of the restaurant boasts of the same menu and bistro décor as it’s older sister.
