THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Le Souffle Restaurant Review

: There's definitely life beyond the soufflé at Peter Kromberg's severely dated sage, beige and defiantly 80s hotel dining room. That's not to say the soufflés should necessarily be eschewed, though a starter of cèpe and tarragon soufflé with a gratin of goat cheese did not live up to the fluffy perfection anticipated. It's the organic menu which may put this destination back on the gastro-map. Not only is every detail organic: including the bread, rolls, wine, coffee and chocolate, but the dishes are confidently cooked using excellent, flavoursome ingredients. Smoky brochette of scallops on roasted aubergine with a fragrant tomato fondue, and roasted sea bass with shiitake mushrooms and a Savoy cabbage emulsion were supremely confident dishes. A sweet soufflé of red berries was simply stunning. The wine list is classic with little of excitement in the lower echelons. Service is old-fashioned and cossetting though did seem a little overbearing.
