New informal, ingredient-led dining concept, Roux At The Landau, to launch this spring
The creator of Artesian and more recently The Wigmore, The Langham, London, is pleased to announce its latest dining concept – the transformation of Roux at The Landau, a restaurant by Michel Roux Jr.
After closing for renovation in January, The Langham, London’s restaurant, Roux at The Landau, is due to reopen its doors for a soft launch in February, with the transformation being fully complete in early spring 2018. Provenance of ingredients will be at the forefront of an elegant, yet pared-back menu, served in the newly refreshed space.
Award-winning, London-based interior architecture practice David Collins Studio – responsible for the design of the original high-ceiling oval dining room – were charged with creating the new design. The evolution of Roux at The Landau’s dining concept was the driving force and inspiration behind the major features of the renovation. Most notably, a counter with a striking curvilinear form will take pride of place in the centre of the dining room.
Under Michel Roux Jr’s guidance and supervision, Chef Nicolas Pasquier, will offer simple, but refined dishes created with classic French cooking techniques, using the very best ingredients, prepared to a superb standard. Native of the Vendée, Nicolas’ quiet and determined nature is reflected in his clean, focused flavours and restrained presentation. Nicolas’ cooking will be complemented by a range of desserts specially created by The Langham’s executive pastry chef, Andrew Gravett.
The central counter will have displays of charcuterie and shellfish to be enjoyed as starters or a light meal. A selection of ‘snacks’ such as La Latteria’s burrata ‘fior de latte’, beetroot tartare or Cornish crab salad will also be available to enjoy.
A sizeable custom-made cabinet showcasing a range of cheeses from the very best British and French suppliers will be another striking feature, emphasising the quality and range of produce on offer.
The new menu will also feature a vastly extended wine list, offering precisely 525 varieties of both New and Old World wines, available in its entirety by the glass.
The Langham, London has become synonymous with pushing the boundaries of restaurant innovation (Artesian, The Wigmore). The new Roux at The Landau will reframe the ways in which today’s customers are able to experience the world of fine dining.
