Roux at Parliament Square

Parliament Square, LONDON, SW1P 3AD

3 rosettes

In a rather handsome Georgian building, designed by Alfred Waterhouse of London's Natural History Museum fame, and home to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, this restaurant offers a touch of refinement with the Roux endorsement. Part of the broader Roux family, the kitchen here is headed up by Steve Groves, a prodigious talent in his own right. In a couple of elegant dining rooms decorated with timeless simplicity and an absence of chintz, the chef and his team deliver vibrant plates of classically-inspired food that show plenty of contemporary flair. Start upstairs in the cocktail bar if you've time and sip on a blue martini before heading into the restaurant. Choose between the tasting, à la carte and set menu options. The high quality of the produce is evident from the off with an earthy first course of veal sweetbreads with grilled hearts, turnips and tarragon mustard, or the more genteel roast Scottish langoustine partnered with prawn tortellini and coastal vegetables. Flavours are well-judged and presentation impresses throughout. Ibérico pork chop is served as a main course with textures of onion, while hogget of Herdwick lamb with smoked tomato and wild garlic. A fish main course might be Brixham brill with brown crab and the subtle aroma of lemongrass. Among desserts, Yorkshire rhubarb and vanilla soufflé looks amazing on the plate, with rhubarb sorbet, vanilla custard and shortbread crumble, or go for three scoops of ice cream or sorbet from the day's selection. British and French cheeses are perfectly kept and make a tantalising finale. The wine list focuses on the French big guns without ignoring the rest of the world.
