For those of you who are going to celebrate Valentines Day at LP and Tetsu, you are certainly in for a treat. It was my first visit since the restaurant teamed up with Laurent Peugeot and the menu has since drastically changed.
For a start, we had the Jambon Ibericco Bellotta, consisting of beetroots cooked in salt crust and red curry sauce. Expect a rather strong opener that is high in salt.
the next course was the Akami maguro, copeaux de foie gras. Think of it as a French Japanese infusion of tuna and foie gras served on sushi rice. Nice mix.
The first main course it he Saint Pierre, or the John Dory Fish cooked lightly rested on a slice of oyster to create a slight bitter finish.
The second main course is the Wagyu Boeuf, paired with tamago and miso pearls to create a very rich and tasty dish.
Next was the cheese dish, consisting of an 18 Month-Old Comte Cheese. This was tagged with some Astina Herb to create a pleasant sweet finish and prepare one for the main dessert of Wild Strawberry Tube with Rose Fragrant Chocolate. Oh, what way to celebrate love on this special day!
