THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Brasserie Chavot Restaurant Review

: Eric Chavot has returned to London dining with this brasserie in The Westbury Hotel. But don’t be fooled by the “brasserie” title. The restaurant may be intended as a more casual affair than his former establishments, but it’s slightly too smart, and it isn’t open all day, so it’s not really a brasserie. But that doesn’t matter; this is a destination to put on your list. The long room has the right look of banquette seating, mosaic floor, chandeliers, mirrors and smartly dressed waitstaff. And the menu sticks to well-tried brasserie-style staples, though on a far more haute level than usual. Chavot uses the best seasonal British ingredients. Start with Waldorf salad with spicy pecan nuts, or a top charcuterie selection. Follow with sea bass with ratatouille niçoise that packs in all the flavors of the south of France, or venison with honey-glazed root vegetables. You can’t go wrong with an île flottante or rum baba to finish. The wine list is good; the prices are a value and the whole experience a delight.
