Pétrus Review

Gordon Ramsay protégé Sean Burbidge presides over an absolutely flawless, world-class, modern French experience at Tripadvisor's top-ranked London restaurant in very posh Belgravia. The softly carpeted dining salon may be a bit beige and circa G. Ramsay-late-'90s, and a central circular glass wine cellar a touch passé, but add in the warm welcome, bonhomie, impeccable nibbles, bonne bouches, petit fours, assured sommelier, stonking cheese board, and charming, fleet-footed service, and you've got an unparalleled all-around gastro-embrace. Burbidge's go-forward cuisine is all technique, technique, technique, and it's impossible not to swoon at starters like exemplary Les Landes duck foie gras with grape jelly, or perfect lobster ravioli swimming in creamed leaks and Champagne velouté. Bliss out on pink 25-day Casterbridge beef fillet with braised shin and sticky Barolo sauce, and watch out for surprises towards the end, like the honeycomb-and-dark-chocolate sphere that theatrically melts in front of your eyes, cute cones with syllabub, or white choc-ices on sticks that emerge from a bowl of dry ice.
