Le Gavroche

www.le-gavroche.co.uk 

Le Gavroche was the first UK restaurant to be awarded one, two and three Michelin stars. You will probably be familiar with the chef de cuisine, Michel Roux Jr, who has been on our screens over the years on Saturday Kitchen, Hidden Restaurants, MasterChef : The Professionals and Food & Drink.  He can often be seen greeting guests during service at the Mayfair based restaurant, which, apart from the truly stunning food, is one of the many reasons Tony & Becky have a birthday tradition of lunch or dinner at Le Gavroche.

Serving traditional French cuisine in East London.  Located on Brick Lane, Chez Elles Bistro is small and intimate, but is big in personality.  Offering seriously good food and excellent wine, we recommend you pay them a visit.

An award winning Michelin starred modern European restaurant and champagne bar based in a restored Georgian building in Mayfair, Texture has Scandinavian influences and focuses on marrying British produce with ingredients from Iceland.  If you’re looking for something slightly unusual but full of flavour and intrigue, then we absolutely recommend you visit Texture. 

 

The Frog

Run by chef of the year 2014 and Great British Menu contestant, Adam Handling, The Frog is relaxed and informal, but where diners can expect ingenious flavour combinations and suspiring cooking techniques Adam has honed over the years.  The first restaurant – just off Brick Lane – has been followed up with The Frog by Adam Handling in Covent Garden, which will no doubt keep diners happy and well fed for the foreseeable future.   

Semilla

Based in Saint Germain in Paris, Semilla is incredibly relaxed, but serves food that is elegant and full of complex but by no means confusing flavour.  Somewhere you can go with friends, lovers or young children, it caters for the discerning palate in a funky modern space.  The wild mushroom and truffle tagliatelle was one of the standout dishes for us. 

Robuchon

If you are in Paris we highly recommend visiting L’Atelier St. Germain, however, any of the restaurants by the legendary Joel Robuchon come highly recommended.  Competitively priced and welcoming, the food you will taste here will take you on a culinary journey somewhere you have never been.
