LE CO­CHON AVEUGLE

BBC Good Food - - Eat Like A Local - SO, CD

As chef and front-of-house boss, Josh Over­ing­ton and Vicky Robert have cre­ated, in Le Co­chon Aveugle, a small gas­tro­nomic co­coon that is a par­tic­u­lar prod­uct of their food ob­ses­sive per­son­al­i­ties. Put your­selves in the duo’s wel­com­ing hands and in­dulge in the con­stantly chang­ing eight-course tast­ing menu. Served blind, each course is a mag­nif­i­cent culi­nary sur­prise but, have no fear, for Josh’s clever, pro­duce-driven dishes like the rose veal tartare minced with fried capers, smoked bonito flakes and laced with a cit­russy ton­nato sauce; or a salad of An­ar­chy Ur­ban Farm veg­eta­bles with a humdinger of a gar­den velouté, are beau­ti­ful, con­sid­ered cre­ations which, cru­cially, de­liver oo­dles of pro­found flavour. As do the bio­dy­namic and nat­u­ral wines served in this lightly vin­tage-styled restau­rant. The sis­ter Cave du Co­chon wine bar is lo­cated on the same street, where you can sam­ple a se­lec­tion of cheeses, char­cu­terie and small plates with your drinks. £60pp. leco­chonaveu­gle.uk
