Roux at The Landau — London, UK
Roux at The Landau has emerged from a refit led by David Collins Studio, the London-based interior architecture practice which designed the original space ten years ago. A new dining concept informed the handsome redesign of Michael Roux Jr’s restaurant, which is located at The Langham hotel in Marylebone.
The centrepiece of the refreshed interiors is a striking timber and blue leather-clad bar, which commands the main dining room. A pair of custom brass chandeliers hang over oak tables, while aged metal accents recall the original design of the space. The entrance of the restaurant has been also revamped, featuring a leather reception desk, wine vault, and cheese display.
A pared-back menu devised by chef Nicolas Pasquier puts a refined spin on classic French cooking, which dishes including braised turbot with Chateau-Chalon sauce and native lobster ravioli, or artichokes à la Barigoule with bulgur and turmeric emulsion. The wine offering has been vastly extended to include 525 varieties – each one available by the glass.
