Menus & Brochures
Located in the heart of historic St James’s, we pride ourselves on attention to detail with every aspect of a meal. In the first half of the 20th Century, X. M. Boulestin’s knowledge and love of his country’s cuisine enabled him to showcase French recipes as well as dishes from other parts of the world. And it’s his level of passion that founder Joel Kissin has brought back to the London restaurant scene. The classic dishes on our menu are from M. Boulestin’s pre-war cookbooks, including Oeuf en Gelée, Soupe de Poissons and Jambon Persillé.
We characterise the restaurant as leaning towards French food, but as with Boulestin’s recipes, there are also dishes that are not French. Our Head Chef Elliot Spurdle is continuously inventing and developing our menu, with dishes such as Braised Beef Cheek & Pan-Fried Fillet with Bone Marrow & Squash Purée being an immediate hit. There’s also Ballotine of Chicken with Truffle Compote, and Roast Veal Loin with Wild Mushrooms. New lighter dishes include a mouth-watering Quinoa Salad with Pomegranates, Fava beans and Courgettes, an Heirloom Tomato Tart with Burrata and a Cornish Crab with Fresh Squid Ink Pappardelle. If you’ve a sweet tooth (or even if you haven’t) our Sauternes Custard with Agen Prunes in Armagnac is like nothing else!
We have outside seating in an historic courtyard garden, away from the traffic, lit by antique original gas lamps. We serve delicious, creative, carefully prepared food, with discrete and friendly service. The charming restaurant is lined with drawings and paintings after those done by Jean-Emile Laboureur – the illustrator of most of Boulestin’s cookbooks, meaning wherever you look in the restaurant, there is a reminder of where the inspiration came from.
