Tucked away on the corner of Brooks Mews and Avery Row, just behind Claridge’s, LPM Restaurant & Bar offers Londoners a taste of the French Mediterranean.
Previously named La Petite Maison, this spot hits all the pleasure points with its elevated Mediterranean home cooking – the light, ingredient-driven dishes (think warm prawns served in buttery olive oil and baby chicken marinated in Amalfi lemon) are celebrated city-wide, and as for the staff, well, they make you feel like a star.
Relaxed yet smart; elegant, whilst a little eccentric – think of dining at LPM Restaurant & Bar as an experience akin to a members’ club, without the need for a membership.
Considered one of London’s finest dining establishments, this is somewhere you’ll likely visit on repeat.
What To Order
Every dish is a winner here. Order a medley of plates from the hors d’oeuvres offering: our favourites included the pissaladière (onion tart with anchovies), the french bean salad, and a selection of carpaccio dishes. And, when in Cote d’Azur… (you know the rest) the escargots in fresh herbs and garlic butter are a must, mais bien sûr.
Mains teeter towards the traditional with highlights including the turbot with artichokes, chorizo, white wine, and olive oil; succulent grilled lamb cutlets with smoked aubergine; and a smashing homemade pappardelle with veal ragù.
Finally, dessert. The dessert menu promises an indulgent selection of French classics: vanilla crème brulée, pain perdu with spiced ice cream, a thin crust apple tart, and a warm chocolate mousse with malt ice cream. We say go for it all, whether it’s just two of you, or a larger group; each sweet delight is better than the last.
Who To Bring
Ideal for dates (lunch or dinner), family bookings, girls’ night out. LPM Restaurant & Bar really is an all-rounder.
