THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Notting Hill Brasserie Restaurant Review: The brasserie is in a pleasant townhouse, decorated in pale colours with well-spaced, comfortable chairs and tables. In both atmosphere and décor it's far removed from Notting Hill's more usual trendy dining scene. The cooking is just as sophisticated, with starters like watercress velouté with Scottish lobster mayonnaise on toast or pan-fried foie gras with confit gizzards and truffle. Mains follow the same complex route: baked halibut comes with white onion purée, herb gnocchi, mussels, clams and cockles; roast rack of lamb with shoulder croquette, spring vegetables and salsa verde. Desserts include a cocoa bean crème brûlée with coffee ice cream, or warm chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream. It’s expensive, but lunch is a great value. Service is professional and unhurried; the wine list impressive. Set 2-course lunch £15.50, 3 courses £19.50. Set Sun. jazz lunch 2 courses £25, 3 courses £30.
