Le Gavroche, London, is still a stunning restaurant at 40 plus years old. This short post from the field will be expanded on later. For now, I will cite two snippets of our dinner to make the point. The service staff was finishing plating a table next to us. Two waiters and one captain were busily carving and serving a leg of milk fed lamb from France. One gentleman left the table at that point. I told my wife, Christine, that his plate would be covered with a silver dome within five seconds, and so it was. The second point was the entrée pictured in this post, rack of milk fed lamb. This dish, served with a ragout of fresh flageolet and porcini, a light jus and lamb kidney was a perfection of superb ingredients and precise execution. The lamb was so tender that it evaporated in your mouth. Yes, Le Gavroche at 40, under the direction of chef-owner Michele Roux Jr., is destined to be a dinning Mecca for decades to come.
