SquareMeal Review of Le Comptoir Robuchon

Gold Award

Joël Robuchon was the world’s most Michelin-starred chef and the 2006 arrival on West Street of his l’Atelier de Joël Robuchon marked the decisive moment when the planet’s foremost restaurant brands deemed a presence in London essential.

The loss of l‘Atelier’s two Michelin stars, the death of Robuchon in 2018 and the closure of the restaurant the following year all seemed like nails in the coffin of a very noughties style of fine dining. But the lasting impact of the chef on London has been underlined by this supremely assured revival of the Robuchon brand, precision tuned for globetrotting (and deep-pocketed) Mayfair diners.

The dining room looks stunning, illuminated by floor-to-ceiling plate glass windows, with a long marble bar by the entrance giving way to a long open kitchen and counter on one side, plush velvet-upholstered banquettes on the other and cleverly angled mirrors providing excellent people-watching opportunities of the glamorous goings-on.

Luxury ingredients abound on a menu overseen by chef Jeremy Page, who spent 10 years with Robuchon at the original l’Atelier in Paris and headed up the kitchen of the London outpost. The smoothest slice of pressed foie gras, pink and veined like a piece of alabaster, is topped with a jammy layer of fig, while there’s more foie parcelled up with langoustine in a fat pin cushion of ravioli.

Caviar runs like a seam of black gold through the menu, adorning a bar snack of luscious wagyu beef, spooned over turbot in a perfectly balanced seaweed butter sauce and, even more fabulously, given star billing as the dark heart of a lobster jelly embellished with around 50 teardrops of cauliflower cream – typical of the painstakingly labour-intensive technique applied to all the faultlessly presented dishes.

Robuchon’s signature is everywhere, from the legendary dish of pommes purée (with a heart-stopping 1:1 ration of butter to spud) which remains the sine qua non of mashed potato, to the ‘JR’ initials which elegantly adorn everything from terrific breads to the toffee-coloured top of the aptly named Le Chocolat Sensation.

Naturally, none of this comes cheap, and prices head ever more skywards when investigating the French-focused wine list, though a set lunch for £39 is a godsend for shoppers who’ve maxed out on Bond Street. Le Comptoir Robuchon is a seamless continuation of Robuchon’s legacy – a star is re-born.

About Le Comptoir Robuchon

The brand started by late French chef and restaurateur Joël Robuchon has bought what it calls an “evolved restaurant concept” to Clarges Street in Mayfair, with Le Comptoir Robuchon acting as an extended version of Robuchon’s original small plates concept.

The kitchen at Le Comptoir Robuchon is overseen by executive chef Jeremy Page, who was by Robuchon’s side for 13 years at the original L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Saint Germain, Paris (the London outpost closed in 2019 following the chef’s death the previous year). The menu is split into two parts and designed to share – La Saison is a run of contemporary and seasonal dishes which make use of high-quality produce, while Les Eternels comprises of a collection of Robuchon’s signature dishes.

From the La Saison section of the menu, you can enjoy dishes such as Saint-Jacques, scallop, potatoes and sage or Les Pleurotes, oyster mushroom and consommé, while Les Eternels features Le Homard, native lobster and romesco sauce, as well as burrata with a helping of Robuchon’s famous purée mashed potato. Those following restricted or alternative diets will be glad to know that vegan and gluten-free options are also available.

Le Comptoir’s Robuchon’s interiors have been designed by international design company Thurstan and is a luxurious space, featuring refined tones of burnt orange and clay, alongside banquette seating that’s great for groups and an elegant marble-top counter at the bar where guests can enjoy an aperitif.  

Joël Robuchon was a world-famous chef, having been awarded a total of 32 Michelin stars across 13 countries during his illustrious career, the most of any chef in the world. Robuchon is credited with reinventing French cuisine and acted as a mentor to several accomplished chefs such as Gordon Ramsay and Michael Caines. Robuchon passed away in August of 2018 at the age of 73.
