SquareMeal Review of Roux at The Landau

silver award

SILVER AWARD

Roux at the Landau, The Langham hotel’s more formal, food-orientated option than its Artesian bar and Wigmore pub, re-opened in summer 2018 following a refurb. David Collins Studio has done a subtle update on the high-ceilinged Edwardian room, adding Parma Violet-coloured leather chairs and pistachio green banquettes. A curving wall of windows in an elevated position above Langham Place remains the dining room’s biggest asset; there’s also now a central counter for solo dining, although without an open kitchen to eat around, it feels rather exposed.  


Foodwise, the cooking has been simplified, although Roux luxury – Michel Jr oversees the menu – runs like a vein through the menu: XL Orkney scallop comes with oscietra caviar, braised turbot with native lobster ravioli. But there’s invention, too: seared foie gras is partnered by rabbit and pig’s trotters on toast, with pickled veg to cut through all the richness, while a Lake District lamb chop gets a North African accent with a dusting of ras en hanout. As at Michel’s Le Gavroche, there’s a good-value lunch menu (two/three courses £25/30), or a five-course tasting menu for £35, as well as à la carte.                            


It’s still a very hotel-feeling space, but that does make it a useful spot for breakfast and lunch meetings, while afternoon tea is served in the neighbouring Palm Court. And come the evening, it’s well placed for moving on to drinks at Artesian or The Wigmore.

This is my 5th or 6th meal at this restaurant and it never disappoints. We went for a small tasting menu (6 courses) and each one were delicious. Personally I'd have preferred just one desert rather than 3 (including cheese), but that is a preference issue and I really enjoyed the whole meal.

The Roux brothers really know how to run their restaurants and to provide the best all round experience for their customers, and this restaurant is no exception. The food is just superb - the best that French fine dining has to offer (only surpassed by Le Gavroche and The Waterside). I always know I can just relax and enjoy when I visit one of their restaurants. Of particular note, the seasonal lamb was simply melt in the mouth and delicious.

All round great with my only complaint being a lack of vegetables with the superb plaice (a potato and a wilted leaf!). Excellent country pate to start, and lovely panna cotta dessert, with a delightful amuse bouche to start and really good petits fours to finish. Service was exemplary. We will return!
