This one needed some organising as there was a 2 month waiting list to book lunch at Le Gavroche. My brother in law is a real foodie so he and his wife came with us.
Le Gavroche is such an iconic place, one of my customers worked there and was the first English chef to aquire 3 Michelin stars. Having spoken to them about the place just wanted to experience eating there. Michel Roux is such a foodie god and just love his enthusiastic love of food. I was completing in awe when I saw that his was actually there cooking my lunch!!
The restaurant is just off Park Lane in London, as you enter it’s very 80’s French opulence very traditional. We were led to our table and had a glass of Champagne and these wonderful canapés arrived.
One was an avocado mouse with a shaving of Serrano ham and the other was a lobster salad with a shaving of truffle. Both completely divine.
Next came the amuse, which was a crab cake on a mango and sweetcorn salsa.
Then the man himself came over to check that everything was ok and of course to get a picture with him. He also signed my menu which I will treasure!!
It was an amazing experience and probably the best place I have ever eaten. The prices were expensive but as a treat not so bad! £52.60 for 3 courses, coffee and petit fours, water and wine.
A truly lovely treat 🙂
