Pied à Terre

34 Charlotte Street, LONDON, W1T 2NH

3 rosettes

The discreet narrow-fronted premises have always somehow belied one of the premier addresses on multi-restauranted Charlotte Street, and the feeling of stepping into somewhere very exclusive, secretive, even members-only, is part of the thrill. A small smart bar leads into the narrow dining room, where mirrors deceptively extend the space and the head-turning artwork takes its inspiration from used kitchen paraphernalia. Andy McFadden arrives from L'Autre Pied, which continues to act as a nursery kitchen for the big brother, but the finely detailed style of inventive modern cooking remains. Beautifully caramelised duck foie gras with an oat crust is punctuated by sharp notes of pomegranate, with spinach and a verjus sauce adding subtle acidity. That may be followed by crisply rendered suckling pig belly with braised loin, strongly seasoned with sage, the richness intensified with chorizo and creamily puréed butternut squash. Fish could be halibut, delightfully paired with brown shrimps in beurre noisette, with some cavolo nero and lemon. Boost your nutrient intake with a carrot cake dessert, its cream cheese appearing in little truffle-like balls, the health kick delivered by a 'multivitamin' sorbet made from a plethora of fruit juices. It all comes with one of the most comprehensive (and dangerously seductive) wine lists in the district.
