Currently hanging on to one Michelin star, four Red Rosettes from AA, the 24th position in the Good Food Guide’s top 50 for 2015, number 28 in The Hardens/Sunday Times’ reckoning, and 27 in Zagat’s food guide – and those are just 2014’s accolades –Fitzrovia’s Pied à Terre is a gastronomic stronghold renowned amongst London gourmands serious about fine dining and French-style cuisine. The offering at Pied à Terre’s Charlotte Street premises is simply stunning. Choose from the best-value lunch menu on offer from a Michelin-starred restaurant, or go for gold with the a la carte, 10- or 7-course tasting menus, or the chef’s truffle menu. Exceptional.
Restaurateur David Moore’s first restaurant in his Group Pied, Fitzrovia’s famed Pied
à Terre, remains at the top of its game, offering a seriously fine French cuisine
experience for over 20 years. Surviving a devastating fire, this much-loved institution
down Charlotte Street emerged, Phoenix-like, stronger than ever. Pied à Terre is the
elder sibling to Marylebone’s L’Autre Pied, and as a flagship, this gourmet London
restaurant sets the standard for all of Moore’s achievements. And they are many,
and uniformly showered with accolades. With head chef Marcus Eaves, who gained
his first Michelin star during his stint at L’Autre Pied at the ripe young age of just 27,
Pied à Terre is ranked number 20 in the UK restaurant scene, often gets perfect
scores or, in a case where faint modesty deigns to prevail, sits in the
extraordinary to perfection category in the Zagat food guide.
Dining at Pied à Terre is a true experience. Seated in their Charlotte Street premises in London’s Fitzrovia, you are treated to a venue filled with notable artworks, including pieces by Sir Peter Blake and Richard Hamilton, perfectly complementing the restaurant’s chic elegance. Pied à Terre takes the creative and collaborative aspect of their overall offering seriously, instituting an Artist in Restaurant programme. Downstairs, the main dining room hosts 44 people, who can enjoy exquisite French-style cuisine from one of Pied à Terre’s many menus, including the unparalleled tasting and degustation menus. All dishes must be expertly matched with wine from Pied à Terre’s notable wine cellar, or why not just head straight for a private wine tasting in the form of Pied à Terre’s Wine Flights? The ultimate Pied à Terre experience is undoubtedly to take over the upstairs private dining room, where exclusive food launches regularly take place, complete with dedicated service team and bespoke menus. For fine French cuisine of the highest order, you can’t go past London’s Pied à Terre.
Pied a terre is one of the best restaurants in London. Very good service and hospitality, no hurries and axcellent food and wine. For vegetarians, even in the 9 course tasting menu, Pied a terre delivers a variety of very creative, and extremely good dishes.
Wonderful in every way, staff were knowledgeable, helpful and discreet. The food and wine were outstanding and the evening couldn't have been better. Hope to go again before too long.
Superb foot, attentive yet discreet waiters, amazing selection of wines with very knowlegeable staff - quite simply my favourite restaurant. The vegetarian taster menu is delicious!
