Now embarked on its sixth decade, Le Gavroche remains for many the gold standard of aspirational French dining, a place where everything is done with both correctness and courtesy, and the waiting list for tables speaks of the unwavering faith that an international clientele, as well as London regulars, maintain in such an approach. Two generations of the Roux family have built a culinary empire on classical French cuisine of the Escoffier era, with discreetly applied modernistic notes to taste, and Michel Roux Jnr, a genially familiar figure from food TV, is only too happy to make a tour of the dining room towards the end of service, dressed in his pristine whites for the selfies. Exquisite presentations elevate dishes as straightforward as lemon-marinated salmon with vodka jelly into the artworks they aspire to be, while the grilled scallops in clam minestrone are the last word in bracing sea-freshness. A main course of stone bass with red rice and fennel looks to north Africa for its pastilla presentation and seasoning with ras el hanout, its meat jus adding an extra resonant dimension, or there might be Cumbrian rose veal with creamed morels and mash, the ultimate in meaty comfort food. Meanwhile, the signature dishes for which the Gavroche has been noted over the decades – the soufflé suissesse in its bubbling cream bath, the lobster and Aquitaine caviar in champagne butter, the feather-light omelette Rothschild in its apricot and Cointreau sauce – remain touchstone manifestations of an all but vanished culinary language, much as is the flawless service.
