Review on Plu
Plu is a very welcome addition to St John's Wood, a fine dining restaurant just a short walk from the iconic Beatles Abbey Road crossing. It's the first solo project from chef Elliot Moss, who trained at the critically acclaimed three Michelin-starred Le Gavroche in Mayfair.
There's a charming terrace at the front of the restaurant which is an ideal spot for pre-dinner aperitifs, when the weather obliges. Inside, the intimate dining room seats just 22 guests and looks eminently chic with a contemporary design featuring a stunning vibrant blue blown-glass chandelier, created by American glass sculptor Dale Chihuly.
Elliot presents two tasting menus with the option of wine pairing, with impeccable crafted dishes showcasing breathtaking flavours and brilliant compositions. Look out for instagrammable dishes in the shape of La soupe: Pick and Lick, gazpacho with aged balasamic presented in the style of Andy Wahol's Marilyn Diptych. Other courses that are wowing diners include his 'Sunday Roast', Pyrenean milk fed lamb, roast potato "petal chips", mint-hazelnut "dressing", as well as La Salad: Hiver "A La Japonaise" a tasting of tuna, mirin, ginger-soy-sesame dressing, coriander sorbet.
The restaurant takes its name from the past participle of the French verb plaire, meaning to have pleased or enjoyed and in that respect it certainly exceeds, with it's unfailing attention to detail in every aspect of the dining experience.
