Grégory Marchand, Best Chef 2010

Everyone’s rushing over to Greg Marchand’s fantastic hideaway, where the Frenchie kingdom now extends from rue du Nil in Paris (Bar à vinsFTG) all the way to Covent Garden. Just as brutalist as it was the day it opened (exposed rafters, bare brick walls, a zinc bar), this sophisticated spot serves a neo-bistro score composed by the master of the house. On the five-course €78 menu the night we went: foie gras topped with a smoked eel and cider jelly, plus a subtle miso purée; incredible manicotti stuffed with squash, creamy scamorza and a shimmering chicken skin crumble; a brilliant salted yellow pollack fillet that was finished off on the barbecue, plus a mushroom emulsion (porcini, chanterelle and shimeji), pan-fried chanterelles, pickled shimeji and coco beans; fantastic roasted pork loin, plus barley risotto with heirloom carrots and a charred carrot and smoked date condiment; before a crunchy shortbread tart topped with fresh figs and yogurt sorbet, followed by a chocolate cake sprinkled with crushed toasted pecans. To drink, there’s a Côtes-Catalanes white from the Domaine des Enfants Sauvages, a red Bourgogne from Ghilslaine Barthod (€12 a glass), a Ciel Rouge Vouvray from Michel Autran (€57 a bottle) or Vau du Puits, a Chitry from Olivier Morin (€39)… unless you’d rather let yourself be guided by the house’s food and wine pairings (€51 to €99). Menu €48 (lunch) and €78 (dinner). // Mahault Mollaret
