Set in the unique environment of an unmodernised Regency townhouse in London's vibrant Soho district, Gauthier Soho evokes, like no other, the spirit of London fine dining of an era now long since disappeared. Passionate service, proffering courses within silver cloches, a steaming basement kitchen, sommeliers bringing wine and food partnerships to life with intricate precision, and on three floors above, intimate dining rooms buzzing with discerning diners.
Splice this with the most lively and refreshing modern French cooking and a twist of decorative kitsch and you begin to get the idea. The emphasis is on the senses, using intuition and the link between us as humans and the food itself. The challenge is to find the delicate balance between such things as texture, mood, season, time of day, needs, cravings, appetite, and conscience.You won't find any recipe books, measuring equipment or timing devices in this kitchen. Gauthier Soho opened its doors in May 2010 and has already won many awards, including three AA rosettes and a Michelin Star.The building has undergone complete cosmetic refurbishment and boasts two restaurant rooms, five private dining rooms and a wine cellar which is fully licensed for merchant sales.
Gauthier serves French food like never before - with a range of awards including a Michelin star under its belt, this restaurant in the heart of Soho is a real gem. Apparently there’s no timers or measuring jugs in the kitchen, everything comes together through the passion and experience of the chefs and the waiting team. The a la carte menu is impressive (and not overpriced), taking you on a classic journey through courses with just the wryest of smiles. We like the soft duck egg that comes served with soldiers - who says being an adult isn’t fun? As you’d expect from a place like this, the wine list is particularly good with two very knowledgeable sommeliers (Damian and Marco) mixing things up a little. For gorgeous food in great surroundings, go to Gauthier. And never leave.
