Review on Chez Patrick
For more than 18 years, Patrick Tako was the guiding light behind Lou Pescadou, Earls Court's famed seafood veteran. When LP closed in 2006, he moved over to Stratford's in Kensington, re-named the restaurant after himself and set about streamlining the interior. The result is a little corner of seaside France in London W8.
Regulars from Lou Pescadou will no doubt join the loyal local crowd in this cosy new venue and are likely to feel right at home, surrounded by sunny pictures of boats bobbing on the water. The menu is virtually unchanged – French seafood cookery of the old school is the order of the day – and brilliant-value set lunches are still a major selling point.
The arrangement here is a simple one: pick your fish (perhaps salmon, cod, monkfish or Dover sole), decide how you want it cooked and select an appropriate sauce (perhaps beurre blanc or tomato and basil). If fish doesn't grab you, the kitchen also offers chateaubriand, veal kidneys with Moutarde de Meaux sauce and the like. You could kick off with gutsy fish soup ladled from a tureen or giant snails in garlic butter and bring the curtain down with something stoically Gallic like crème brûlée or chocolate mousse.
