Roux at Parliament Square
11 Great George Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3AD
Michel Roux Jnr’s stunning Westminster restaurant Roux at Parliament Square is an outstanding addition to the London restaurant scene. This fabulous restaurant is situated in one of the most beautiful buildings in Parliament Square, the Grade II listed home of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, designed by Alfred Waterhouse, architect of the Natural History Museum.
Step inside the restaurant’s own private entrance and you’ll find a tasteful interior of subdued greys and beiges, leaving the real star of the show – the food- to add a splash of colour to proceedings. Naturally, Roux at Parliament Square is a hotspot for politicians and nearby government workers and quality is second to none in every sense.
The Modern European menu revisits classic dishes with a modern touch. Start perhaps with a hot roasted foie gras with bergamot, rhubarb and port and citrus glaze or slow cooked veal breast with caramelised sweetbreads and bitter chocolate and fennel and follow with steamed fillet of halibut served with asparagus, morels and lemon thyme mousseline or assiette of suckling pig with Chardonnay vinegar pommes puree and wild leeks. Desserts are heavenly such as Manjari chocolate mousse with peanut parfait, caramelised banana and coriander and lime.
Expect an exquisite wine list to accompany the divine menu. Roux at Parliament Square does not just rely upon the name for its quality, it is a truly stunning London restaurant in every way.
