Review on Meursault
Meursault is situated next door to its famous sibling L'Etranger in the basement of the former site of the Opal nightclub in South Kensington. The interior impresses with its sleek modern décor designed by Andy Martin featuring natural stone, glass, leather and marble details. A beautiful watercolour glowing with 18,000 LED lights occupies one wall and continues onto the ceiling, created by award-winning French-Italian artist Noumeda Carbone. The restaurant takes its name not only from the famous French wine region, but also from the leading character in the novel L'Etranger, written by French philosopher and Nobel Prize winner Albert Camus.
The kitchen showcases a menu created by Executive Chef Jerome Tauvron with French and Japanese influences. As well as a la carte options, there are luxurious platters, sashimi, tartars and tempura for sharing. There's an impressive line-up of desserts to finish including lemon and lime cheesecake, poached kumkat compote and raspberry coulis, as well as macaroons, ice cream and sorbet in an eclectic range of flavours.
The international wine list is a cracker running to 1,600 bins with eight offerings by the glass, including a different Meursault each week. There's a selection of sake together with molecular cocktails, Prestige Champagne, Ruinart Blancs de Blancs and Dom Perignon available by the glass.
