L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

13-15 West Street, LONDON, WC2H 9NE

3 rosettes

Tucked away on a quiet side-street on the fringes of Covent Garden, Robuchon's central London bolt hole offers three storeys of urban elegance, with a brace of restaurants, a glamorous bar and a rooftop terrace for spying on the theatre crowds. The ground floor room has a view of the chefs busily prepping and plating, but upstairs is a more classical dining room format, in a dark design setting relieved by splashes of colour in the paper place mats. Xavier Boyer oversees a conscientious interpretation of Robuchon's globally disseminated modern French cuisine, which retains a foot in the bistro ethos. Foie gras terrine with toasted pain de campagne and fig jelly, or tuna salad with crunchy vegetables, prepare the way for robust main courses such as mildly spiced roast venison with poached baby pears, or the stunning stuffed quail with heavenly mash, this element being one of the recipes that helped make Robuchon's name. Imaginative desserts take in an impressive clear sugar column filled with passionfruit and banana cream topped with rum granité and coconut foam and moated with passionfruit sauce.
