Review on Pétrus

2010 saw the third incarnation of Gordon Ramsey's eponymous restaurant Pétrus, named after one of the most famous wines in the world. It was first located on St James's, before moving along with its chef Marcus Wareing to the Berkeley. Then followed the much publicised split between the two chefs, and the restaurant was renamed Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley and Ramsey retained the original name Pétrus.

The new Pétrus has been designed by the renowned Russell Stage Studio, who have also been responsible for the critically acclaimed Savoy Grill, another restaurant part of the the Ramsey Group to open this year. The modern interior has tones of oyster, soft silver and copper tints, together with splashes of the famous Pétrus claret red throughout the room. Round well-laid linen tables set on a thick luxurious pile carpet are arranged around an ultra-modern circular wine cellar, that dominates the centre of the room.

Open your account with roasted langoustine tails with confit chicken leg, baby artichokes and buttered leeks or pressed foie gras and Highland venison with roasted chestnuts, cranberry syrup. Perfectly executed mains follow with crispy Suffolk pork belly with sage Lyonnaise, braised apple and Madeira jus or fillet of halibut with braised fennel and a citrus coriander sauce. Intricate, artfully displayed desserts of white chocolate cylinder with coffee and mascarpone ice cream or orange and vanilla baked Alaska with Grand Marnier sauce bring proceedings to a close.

Impeccable service is led by the charming Jean-Philippe Susilovic, maître d' from the original Pétrus. There is a pedigree wine list, full of top-end treasures such as a 1961 magnum of Pétrus at £49,500, but there are a few offerings by the glass that won't break the bank!
