PLU Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Certainly one of the finest new restaurants in London, PLU, is owned by chef Elliot Moss. The fixed menu offers a 12 course feast that will amaze and delight any gourmand, providing sensory overload of the sights, smells and tastes. I dined there recently with a former Michelin critic from France who declared "Chef Moss has skipped the 1 star level and is clearly destined to gain 2 . It was one of the most creative and delicious meals I've ever had." The restaurant is intimate, beautifully decorated and offers a fine selection of wines. In short, PLU is a 'must visit' for those that desire a very special evening!"
"Oh my goodness, what a place. I don't normally do reviews but this restaurant is something else. I was given a 'soup' that was a piece of art - I have never seen anything like this, let alone eaten anything like it. The food is jaw droppingly beautiful - each dish it's own masterpiece, and the flavours do not disappoint. The restaurant decor is also beautiful. I didn't wan to leave, but would rather have curled up and slept there - incased in the velvet walls. The service? Well the two ladies that served me were friendly, well presented and incredibly knowledgable about the place, the chef, the food etc. YOU MUST TRY THIS PLACE!"
"Chef Elliot Moss is one of the most creative and meticulous chefs I've ever encountered, anywhere in the world. His innovative approach to blending classic with modern, international with local, results in an amazing culinary experience. His new restaurant, PLU in St. Johns Woods, London reflects his fine taste and artistic talents, providing an intimate dining area and a relaxing terrace for his guests. While a dinner served by Chef Moss is a treat for the senses, so too is the decor and atmosphere he has built for his guests. His new menu is one of the finest I've seen anywhere, offering 12 sampler courses, each different, each unique, each superbly prepared and presented. the food will surprise and delight your senses, visually, and in the eating. Nothing is below excellent. I can emphatically recommend Chef Moss' place - PLU - as a very special dining experience that will quickly become one of the best new restaurants in London."
