Walking into Yoshinori feels like being wrapped in a giant white sheet – the ground floor dining room is softly lit, with bleached wooden beams, limestone, dainty crockery and soft grey armchairs. The kitchen is open, so you can watch the team operating like a well-oiled, elegant machine. Service is discreet and reliable, to add to the serenity of the dining experience.
Yoshinori Morié’s cooking is a vibrant tribute to French gastronomy, with beautiful Japanese touches. Confit foie gras nudges up against smoked eel and diced quince, a combination of rich and powerful flavours, while skate wings with white cabbage and Brussels sprouts is married perfectly with a glass of white Burgundy.
Edible flowers adorned a coconut mousse, pineapple sorbet and Mexican tarragon desert – a true delight in a bowl. We leave floating on a cloud.
