Time Out Says
Yet, where some could fall foul of pretension, there’s none of that here. The atmosphere is buzzy, with not a whiff of stuffiness about it. The kitchen is visible behind glass, too, modernising the space.
The first restaurant venture from upmarket catering company Chez Charles, the d3 eatery is headed up by chef Jeremy Degras, formerly of Michelin-starred restaurant Le Quartier Gourmand. And the food, as expected, is excellent.
Everything on the well-put-together menu sounds delicious. We’re encouraged to share (though this isn’t compulsory, don’t worry), so order a couple of starters to kick us off. The wasasbi tuna tartare pani puri is delightful and the texture of the chopped fish and crunchy shell work perfectly. Our avocado cocktail is also a hit – a lovely combination of flavours, with large prawns swathed in classic Marie Rose sauce and finished with a sweet yet tangy mango salsa. A creamy asparagus risotto pairs expertly with the cod in basil beurre blanc sauce, too – again, we can’t fault it.
With quick service and an exciting menu, we’ll be back.
The bottom line
Delicious dishes and comfortable vibe.
