Review on The Pearl Brasserie
Tranquil music, open peat fires and an exotic aquarium define the mood in this informal brasserie run by an enthusiastic couple. The white walls are festooned with colourful modern paintings and the food shows real flair.
Sebastien Masi looks to France for most of his culinary inspiration, although his dishes often have twists – especially from the Mediterranean. Baked loin of rabbit is stuffed with prawns and accompanied by baby leeks and star anise sauce, while pan-seared fillet of black sole is served with warm potato and beetroot salad. Elsewhere, squab pigeon Rossini with pan-fried foie gras and black truffle mashed potato is pure French bourgeois luxury.
Attached to the brasserie is a seductively attractive oyster bar offering fresh bivalves, cheese platters, decadent cocktails by the glass or pitcher and – of course – Champagne.
