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

Silver Award

This highly ambitious French restaurant from Anne-Sophie Pic - the world’s most decorated female Michelin-starred chef - has proved its worth by gaining a second Michelin star in the 2020 guide. Combine that with its location in the grand former London Port Authority building which overlooks Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, and this restaurant is a mighty proposition.

The high-ceilinged 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. She is known for constantly revamping the ingredients, methods and techniques used in her cooking in order to provide her guests with a powerful and unexpected gastronomic experience.

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; and if the thought of a such an open space is a deal-breaker, there's an intimate private dining room for hire.

Reach for the stars

That Anne-Sophie Pic’s London outpost has just received its second Michelin star speaks volumes. A visit here is undoubtedly an elevated dining experience which delivered across the board. It would be easy to feel awed – given the grand location (inside the Four Seasons Hotel, which itself is housed in the former London Port Authority building), much-garlanded chef and already mentioned stars – but, the prevailing impression is one of genuine welcome. Here are people passionate about their métier – and they want diners to partake in this delight too. It was indeed a rare sight to see all the guests seemingly enjoying their meals. Located far from Mayfair or Chelsea there is – dare one say it – almost a better class (or certainly less Instagram-hungry) sort of diner at La Dame. Moreover, in contrast to many restaurants based in hotels, which come almost as an after-thought, diners have every reason to conceive of La Dame as a destination in its own right. Do not be put off by the high ceilings and mirrored pillars of the dining room. Rather, focus on the calming view of the River Thames and Tower of London if you can see it, or just simply sit back and enjoy the experience. Two stars have not gone to the venue’s head; you’re not expected to feel reverent for what you are about to eat, just to partake. Sure, dining here does not come cheap, especially if the tasting menu floats your boat, but a set lunch offering of £32 for two courses or £45 for three must count as a relative bargain, especially given the overall quality. To return to the notion of elevation, consider how steak tartare – a staple of many restaurants – is given an absolute make-over at La Dame. The beef is almost not visible beneath layers of beetroot, smoked pike caviar and lovage ice cream. It is both a visual and taste sensation. Our group of three all ventured for the same main of stone bass – another masterpiece at all levels. A certain element of genius is required to consider the pairing of fish with beetroot, grapefruit, pepper and hibiscus. Balance and integration were superb. Our sommelier who paired Rhone wines with both the starter and main brought a similar level of thought and passion to the experience. When considering the whole meal, it was also the small touches (amuse bouche, petit fours) that mattered. Flawless execution throughout. It’s hard not to be wowed.

Beautiful surroundings, and pleasant service especially from Maria, Martina and Maître d' (sorry forgot his name). Even though the food was beautifully presented, the portion sizes were tiny for the price (£42 pp for 3 courses before wines - the main course of suckling pig was only three pieces of Iberico pork, each measuring 5cm by 1.5cm thickness, with no accompaniments you would expect such as potato dauphinoise. You should not be still hungry after an outlay of over £70pp.) Also, the tiramisu version was too heavy on the cream and raspberry and not enough of the coffee and chocolate. We were expecting a better overall experience, as we have dined in other Michelin starred restaurants around the world. Plus points: Pleasant attentive service, surroundings, design, artwork, fabulous wines, beautifully presented food, fantastic sourdough bread, efficient reservations service, USP. Negatives/ Areas for improvement: Portion sizes & ensure complete plates of food, Value for money, redesign of some of the recipes to be more balanced but keeping the lddpiclondon unique take/ USP on a dish.

Picture perfect evening: To start with a glass of perfectly chilled champagne at the beautifully decorated Four Seasons 10 Trinity Square lobby followed by an exquisite dinner at La Dame de Pic. Starting from the ambiance -the restaurant could easy be placed at a Parisian street- followed by the service and of course the delicious food perfectly paired with wine. The dishes were beautifully presented and it makes you wonder how hard someone needs to work to perfection such a skill, while making sure each dish is full of flavour and on point. We had FEW dietary requirements which were notified to the restaurant in advance, and I had to admire how everything was prepared and served without one additional question. I had a sorbet for dessert, and I could not have enough of the delicious chocolate wafer it was served with. All in all, a wonderful experience.

Thank you to La Dame de Pic and Square Meal for a truly fantastic evening...
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!

Wonderful meal
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 ....
