Pied à Terre

34 Charlotte Street
London W1T 2NH
(28 February 2007)

Tasting Menu:

  • Pepper Seared Tuna with Chive Crushed Potato, Black Olive and Cabernet Sauvignon Vinaigrette, Baby Sorrel
  • Panfried Scottish Scallops with Squash and Vanilla Puree, Toasted Pumpkin Seeds and Beurre Noissette Sauce
  • Roasted Foie Gras, Salsify Puree, Red Onion and Red cabbage Marmalade, Bayleaf Foam
  • Panfried Zander with Ragout of lentils, Snails and Root Vegetables, Parsnip Puree, Curly Kale and Bacon Oil
  • Roasted best End of Salt Marsh Lamb with Caramelised Endive, Shallot Puree and Oregano Sauce
  • The Cheese
  • Mango Coulis with Coconut Foam
  • Bitter Sweet Chocolate tart, Macadamia Nut Cream and Stout Ice Cream
  • Coffee and Petits Fours
Mmmh. We had a lovely Sancerre with the fish and an even lovelier Chevry Chambertin with the meat course and cheese. The menu really speaks for itself although the most memorable dish was the Zander and least memorable was the foie gras.

This was a closing dinner for a deal we did before Christmas so we started with a champagne reception at the bar. The best dish of the day was actually one of the canapés that they served in the bar. It was a foie gras foam sandwiched between two very nice home made crisps. Spetacular.
