SquareMeal Review of
You wouldn’t know it from the outside, but as well as housing many covetable treasures, the Wallace Collection also boasts a unique & rather beautiful restaurant. Oliver Peyton operates a
handful of such venues in auspicious public spaces, but this pink-toned, glass-covered internal courtyard, edged with columns & filled with trees, really is something rather special. Less
trendy & more timeless than many nearby venues, the restaurant is full-on French, with the carte offering a riot of frog’s legs, rillettes, chèvre & fruits de mer, supplemented by
bistro-style dishes such as roast corn-fed chicken with foie gras & spring greens or seared sea bream with lentil casserole & rosemary jus. Café options include breakfast, quiches &
terrines at lunchtime, while afternoon tea is delivered in English or Parisian style.
