Lardbutty restaurant of the week

Truc Vert (green thing) certainly does bring a taste of the country – or something green – into the city. Entering this Mayfair restaurant, you’ll walk through the mini ‘marche’ selling jars of home-made style chutneys and preserves, which contributes to the restaurant’s rustic feel, as do the wooden wine racks lining the walls.

Here, you get what you pay for: really great quality food, and it’s not overly expensive. While main courses average around £17, the prix fixe menu – if dining before 7pm – is around £22.00 for two courses or £25.50 for three.

Changed daily, you can refer to last night’s dinner menu (sample) on the website.

I’ve eaten here several times over the last few years and have thoroughly enjoyed my meal and had a good evening every time. My most recent visit was last night when a friend and I opted for the three course menu at £25.50 (and we were fortunate enough to have bought discount vouchers on Groupon in advance, for a further reduction). Between us, we had:

starters
~ Spinach soup with blue cheese creme fraiche
~ Grilled beam fillet with fennel, dill, spring onion, tomato salad + olive salsa
mains
~ Chargrilled Scottish sirloin steak with sauteed new potatoes, onions, sauteed spinach + mushroom cream sauce (x2)
dessert
~ Apple tartin with vanilla ice cream
~ Poached figs in red wine with pistachio ice cream

To summarise: excellent food and wine menu, service and atmosphere. Definitely one to bring your family or visitors to London to. Highly recommended.
