Any emails from Groupon that I receive with food offers are usually condemned to the trash bin immediately, however its not often you find a Michelin starred deal for a 7 course tasting menu for £31. Hence I snapped up the deal for L'Autre Pied, sister restaurant of Pied à Terre, who both hold 1 Michelin star with L'Autre Pied based in Marylebone which makes the deal more remarkable.
Amuse bouche - Avocado mousse
Salad of radishes with black quinoa, crème fraiche, fennel, dill and lime
Celeriac 'linguini' with black garlic, onion and parsley
Poached cod with brassicas and ruby grapefruit
Fallow deer with beetroot, cocoa and peanut
Heritage carrots with banana and passion fruit
The interior is relaxed but rather weary looking. I like the fact that there is no tablecloth in sight, ideal for a casual lunch. The usual price of the tasting menu is £62 and the pre discount service charge is levied on top.
As expected with a 1 Michelin starred restaurant, the execution and cooking of the dishes was faultless. The key standout dishes were the celeriac linguini and carrot cake dessert. Some good ideas for the other dishes but slightly missing the wow factor. However at this price it was certainly value for money.
