Other less icky dishes include Boudin Gascon aux Pommes (let’s hope it’s not boudin noir, aka black pudding) and Coquilles St Jacques a l’encre (yum). Mains start at £18 or a three course set lunch is a well-priced £22.50.
Koffman's Is Open At The Berkeley, Strong Stomachs Advised
While his protégé Gordon Ramsay isn’t doing so well, non-celeb-but-actual chef Pierre Koffman has just opened his new restaurant at the Berkeley to much fanfare from Londoners (we saw it written up in about three different places during our trip the other week.)
It’s a little late – the place was originally scheduled for a June opening – but we guess fine tuning the meun of pigs’ trotters and internal organs took a little longer than expected.
Anyway, the restaurant is simply called Koffman’s, it has 120 seats and although the menu does have some of his “classic” dishes such as braised pig’s trotter with morels (um, yum?), apparently he has “adopted a more relaxed, informal style while still incorporating his classic, provincial French culinary roots”.
