Summary

“Amazing food with amazing attention to detail”, backed up by a formidable wine list, have made this “glossy” yearling, within the palatial ex-HQ of the Port of London Authority (by the Tower of London), a “superb addition to London’s top-rank restaurants” and a feather-in-the-cap for the Pic family (from Valence, in SE France) who run it. As an imposing backdrop to a business meal it’s particularly well-suited, but other diners are a bit unsure about the design: “it can seem a little disjointed with different styles and spaces, one part modern with white tiles, another Art Deco with black mirrors and banquettes – this doesn’t spoil the experience but could have enhanced it further”.

Summary

An “excellent addition to the City” – this high-ceilinged arrival occupies the gobsmackingly grand, ex-HQ of the old Port of London Authority, near the Tower of London: since January 2017, the second outpost of Four Seasons Hotels in the capital. The dining room – run by the Pic family, who run a much-fêted, Gallic dining empire dating to 1889 in Valence, SE France – is an instant hit with expense-accounters, and wins bouquets from most foodies too for the “sophisticated” and “intense” cuisine from ex-Apsleys chef Luca Piscazzi. There are niggles too: the space – “romantic” to fans – can seem too “blingy” to critics, flavour combinations strike some reporters as “odd”, and, perhaps inevitably, it can all seem “way overpriced”.

Owner's description

La Dame de Pic London is the first UK outpost from acclaimed French Chef Anne-Sophie Pic. Anne-Sophie began her culinary career at the age of 23 at her family’s restaurant, Maison Pic in Valence, south-eastern France. With no formal training, in 2007, she became only the fourth female chef in history to be awarded three Michelin stars and since then has gone on to open restaurants in Lausanne and Paris.

La Dame de Pic London will showcase Anne-Sophie’s passion for unexpected flavour combinations with a focus on seasonal and local ingredients. The 78 cover restaurant, which has been designed by Bruno Moinard and Claire Betaille of Paris-based architects 4BI & Associates, offers a welcoming and relaxed environment with natural wood flooring, curved leather banquettes, columns covered with beveled mirrors and paper artwork by Marianne Guely.

"On arrival I was hugely impressed by the welcome the decor and the friendliness of all the staff. I booked to go at the start of service and there were already customers there. The menu was extensive and varied. I chose the lunch menu. They bought a stunning amuse bouche which was a cold shell orange based taster, absolutely delicious. My starter was, after some truly amazing meals, the best starter I have ever eaten. A cuttle fish dish with a variety of textures and amazing flavours, to be honest I wanted it repeated it was just so impressive. The next course was a scallop dish with beetroot, not usually my favourite vegetable but was delicious too. Main was a Pyrenees milk fed lamb, barbq’ed then slow cooked, so soft and beautiful matching flavours. The dessert was a lemon based chocolate dessert with Douglas fir flavouring too, it was almost as good as the starter, but only almost! The petit fours were marshmallow and wonderful too. A fabulous gastronomic experience, one of the few that tempts me to break my no return rule! Toilets were spotless and well appointed. Staff are lovely and well trained to provide a perfect service Thank you all"
