Super-cool Sketch makes quite a style statement beneath its soaring cupola roof: an explosion of candy pink designer glam from designer India Mahdavi mingles with British artist David Shrigley’s whimsical cartoonish artworks filling the walls, and well-heeled, beautiful people taking selfies on low-slung sponge finger-like barrel chairs and banquettes. Über-chef Pierre Gagnaire's food doesn't stint on creativity either, with vibrancy, sheer skill and a sense of fun evident throughout, opening in European mode with a super-light ham tart with celeriac, sweetcorn and pink grapefruit fondue. Sophisticated technique, along with an intuitive grasp of flavours also distinguishes a main-course of clarified butter-poached sea bass served with tender squid and bitter green herbs in a dramatic black squid ink sauce enriched with Parmesan cream. Desserts are also highly technical workouts: a pink meringue shell is filled with Manjari 64% dark chocolate mousse and ice cream, raspberry sauce, toasted hazelnuts, cocoa jelly and strawberry ganache.
