Fay Maschler reviews Les Deux Salons
Bistro: Les Dawson is what the place is called in my circle. The decision made by new owners Terence and Vicki Conran and Peter Prescott to keep the name   with its somewhat beleaguered history   of Les Deux Salons is an odd one. Yes, it has a ground floor and an upstairs but so do many premises. Peculiar too is the description bistro, not brasserie, for the casual part of the operation. Creating an authentic Parisian brasserie has been the holy grail for Sir Terence; here in theatreland, aged 83, he has done it   and gone one better.Onto the original design by the omnipresent Martin Brudnizki have been layered different details and decoration and a colour range that in the green awnings imitation bvlgari serpenti tubogas watch apparently salutes Les Deux Magots. It is the work of Conran in tandem with Isabelle Chatel de Brancian (covetable name) of Spin Architecture. Head chef is Barry Tonks, who over the years has worked alongside Anthony Demetre   one of the previous owners   as well as garnering a Michelin star for Twickenham's McClements, not dissimilar in cooking style.Dinner in the first floor white tableclothed, flower bedecked, mosaic mirrored columns restaurant is with my old, as in long standing, friend Anne. To give you an idea, we went together to La Coupole in Montparnasse   the apotheosis of Paris brasseries  long before it fell into the maw of Groupe Flo.Balances like a troupe of acrobats: Devon Crab, Pea Bavarois (Picture: Adrian Lourie)We share crudits with herb dotted fromage blanc and a carafe of Viognier Domaine de Muret while deliberating. The menu is relatively short. We are quick to decide on Devon crab, pea bavarois and pink grapefruit and artichoke  la Grecque with asparagus salad and truffle dressing to start. An American friend later tells me that it was Julia Child who put together the duo of crab and pink grapefruit in her book The Joy of Cooking. What impresses is the squeaky freshness of white meat, the zeal of the lemony dressing and a pure of brown meat sleekly crouching on a brisk crouton. Lightly cooked fresh peas   spheres of chlorophyll green   join the pink grapefruit pieces, slender wands of endive and some pink (chive?) flowers on the plate. It balances like a troupe of acrobats.Frise and watercress salad into which asparagus and marinated baby artichokes are mixed is also stylishly dressed, gently mocking the Georges Goursat (aka Sem) rules of attire caricatures of the Muse des Erreurs series on the walls. Slices of summer truffle are unstintingly disposed throughout.RelatedLondon's best new restaurant and bar openings in JulyLes Deux Salons: West End brasserie is Conran's 46th launchLondon's best new restaurant bulgari tubogas watch replica offshoots from Ceviche Old Street to the Ivy Garden Chelsea and Smokehouse ChiswickA veal chop, its surrounding fat crystallised with truffle honey, providing a bouncy castle for a heap of girolles bathed in that sort of profound gravy that veal does best   with more served in a little white bvlgari serpenti tubogas replica jug   and Anjou pigeon roasted fast and bloody, with its crushed liver and heart spread on a crouton, are bastions of what Richard Olney, another American cookbook legend, used to call simple French food, which isn't really simple to make at all.Pushing the boat out (up to a point) on the all French wine list, Borie la Vitarle Saint Chinian Les Schistes 2011 with its Syrah soft pedal, harmonises the meal into an unusually, profoundly satisfactory one. A shared dessert of chocolate delice with almond sorbet underlines that certain rightness about French cooking done with passion, not pretension, served in a dedicated manner as a birthright.Another evening Reg and I eat on the ground floor. It is quiet but maybe customer surges are pre and post theatre. While cocky pricing seems acceptable in the formal restaurant, bistro items such as a 300g entrecte at 29, lemon sole meunire at 18 and tiger prawns, chilli and garlic at 19   all needing accompaniments at 4 a throw   are a challenge to the anticipation of enjoyment. Brasserie Zedel, not that far away, has beavered away long enough to demonstrate that a shy dip into punters' pockets will demonstrably succeed long term.Snails, even Herefordshire ones, should be vehicles for foaming parsley and garlic butter. It is their destiny. It's why they slither about leaving a trail. Here the shells and the dimpled dish in which they sit are more or less devoid of butter. You have to, as it were, look the drab creatures in the eyes before eating.Not simple at all: Cote de Veau (Picture: Adrian Lourie)Crab mayonnaise   13 as opposed to the upstairs crab with pea bavarois at 14   is quite small and this time dressed by M not Cline. In a different mood I would have ordered andouillette de Troyes AAAAA (Association Amicale des Amateurs d'Andouillette Authentique) cooked in the Josper grill at 17 but I choose "young chicken", aka poussin, whose puny personality is overwhelmed by confit lemon. A nice detail is the Laguiole style knife that comes alongside but actually a three month old baby could pull the bird apart.From the desserts the puck of dense meringue that is the island floating in custard is far too sweet. I speak as someone whose culinary pice de rsistance is le flottante.Les Dawson maintained in his not altogether reliable autobiography that his career in entertainment began as a pianist in a Parisian brothel. I knew it was a good name for a restaurant. Dinner Mon Sat 6pm 10.30pm. Bistro: daily 7.30am (9am Sat and Sun) 10.45pm.First floor restaurant: lunch 26/29.50 for two/three courses. A la carte dinner with wine, about 150 including 12.5 per cent service. Bistro theatre menu 5pm 6.30pm, 12.75 for two courses.On Adblock Imitation bvlgari serpenti watches click "Don't run on pages on this domain".If you are Private Browsing in Firefox, "Tracking Protection" may cause the adblock notice to show.
