Le Comptoir Robuchon | Mayfair Restaurant
The late Joël Robuchon was a culinary legend.
His first restaurant won 3 Michelin stars within as many years of opening. He was named “Chef of the Century” by France’s (other) restaurant guide, Gault Millau. And he held the highest number of concurrent Michelin stars (32) by any chef, ever.
Hoping to live up to his legacy is a pair of new openings under the Robuchon moniker – Le Comptoir Robuchon and Le Deli, in Mayfair and Piccadilly respectively. The latter will be a casual, drop-in, all-day café with handpicked products to take away from the counter. Le Comptoir, on the other hand, will be a more formal affair centred around Robuchon’s take on small plate dining. It should make for a pretty authentic experience, because Jeremy Page – who worked with Robuchon for 13 years at the original L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Paris – will be heading up the kitchen.
He’ll be plating up some of Robuchon’s classic dishes on the Les Eternels menu (including that famously silky puréed mashed potato), while flexing his own culinary muscles on La Saison, which’ll showcase seasonal produce and Page’s own distinctive flair – like La Pluma, a dish combining tender ‘pluma’ cuts of Iberico pork, padrón peppers and garlic.
Sounds like it may fare pretty well.
NOTE: Le Comptoir Robuchon is set to open on 1st November. We’ll be back with the full scoop when it does, but in the meantime you can sign up for updates on its website HERE.
