THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Luxe Restaurant Review: Like Smiths of Smithfield, the first John Torode blockbuster, The Luxe is divided into separate levels with different functions. Downstairs is a funky bar-cum-entertainment space with live music for the late-night revelers while the ground floor is an all-day, long-into-the-night venue for casual dining, starting with coffee and a bacon sarnie from a stall outside, or a full English breakfast inside, through lunch, dinner and drinks. The serious dining is upstairs where seasonal game features heavily on a menu that takes in roast quail with foie gras and salsify chips for starters, and roast grouse for a main. But there’s also braised pork cheeks with autumn fruits and red cabbage, plus the likes of baked sea bass with chickpeas and a salsa rossa for those who don't like feathered friends. Service is good; the wine list is decent and the place jumps.
