Gauthier Soho Restaurant Review

: Alexis Gauthier made his considerable name at Roussillon in Chelsea then moved to Soho to what was formerly Lindsay House run by Richard Corrigan. It’s now a pretty, neutral-coloured and elegant space with a French respectful feel to it. It’s the food that shines here and top ingredients are well chosen: from the first course, perhaps a rich, velvety spring truffle and artichoke velouté with truffle and herb ravioli or calf’s sweetbread in an almond crust and coming with morel, parsley and veal jus. Move on to a wild garlic risotto with crisp chicken skins with chervil, then the choice is between fish or meat. Wild sea bass and asparagus with cèpes in a parsley and fish jus, or new season lamb with aubergines and red pepper in a thyme jus? This is classic cooking, done with skill and a remarkably light touch. As at Roussillon, there’s a first-rate vegetarian menu as well. The wine list is mainly French and at the top end. At these prices, this is a real treat. 3 dishes £35, 4 £45, 5 £55. Set lunch and pre-theatre menus 2 courses £18, 3 courses £25. Set tasting menu £68.
