Gauthier Soho

21 Romilly Street, LONDON, W1D 5AF

3 rosettes

There's nothing quite like having to ring for admittance to give your meal that exclusive feeling, making you feel you're in on a secret known only to the honoured few. Once inside the shiny black front door of Alexis Gauthier's intimate Soho restaurant you'll find bright white walls and tablecloths, mirrors, fresh flowers and art, all adding to a welcoming and cheerful atmosphere. It's the perfect setting for the complex modern French cooking. There are various set menu choices, as well as tasting options - including a vegetarian one. Gauthier is a confidently instinctive cook and everything is sourced with incredible care, resulting in technically impressive and perfectly balanced dishes. A winter lunch might begin with ballotine of quail with toasted walnuts, followed by sea trout with root vegetables, yuzu, soy sauce and honey, or pork fillet stuffed with dates and accompanied by sumac, leeks and pommes noisettes. The tasting menus offer a stunning exploration of flavour and texture, maybe black truffle risotto, or shoulder and loin of Welsh lamb - the latter pink roasted and the former thyme braised - with herb and parmesan celeriac. Yorkshire rhubarb comes with grenadine and crumble, and the selection of unpasteurised French cheeses is well worth exploring.
