Hong Kong’s Serge et le Phoque, the inventive French bistro from former Le Chateaubriand and Le Dauphin staffers, has arrived in London. The second outpost is in the independent Mandrake Hotel, a luxe 34-room property that opened last month in the West End. The menu follows a similar spirit to Hong Kong: octopus with century egg and ginger, say, or scallop with anchovy, fried leek root, dried shiitake and matcha tea. The wine, overseen by sommelier Albert Blaize (formerly of The Clove Club), leans to the organic, biodynamic and natural.
The Serge team will also look after the snacks in the hotel minibar.
