Much like astronomy, gastronomy often involves the use of precise calculations, arcane equipment and the appreciation of heavenly creations. Make a quantum leap in dining with today's Groupon: £62 for a seven course tasting menu for two at L'Autre Pied.
The holder of one Michelin Star and winner of a pantry full of awards, including Square Meal's Best New Restaurant and Time Out Eating and Drinking guide's Best New Restaurant, L'Autre Pied offers up a modern take on traditional French cuisine that is as mouth-watering as it is innovative. The kitchen is led by Andy McFadden, a talented young chef who made the finals of the Gordon Ramsay Scholarship and was mentored at L'Autre Pied's Michelin Star sister restaurant Pied à Terre. Located up a quiet Marylebone side street, the restaurant's elegant décor and refined atmosphere matches the high standards reached by its food.
Peckish twosomes can enjoy L'Autre Pied's sophisticated atmosphere while nibbling their way through the restaurant's exquisitely prepared seven course tasting menu. Palates embarking on this culinary adventure are led into the world of Michelin-starred dining by some dainty but delicious amuse bouche before sampling painstakingly put together creations such as Jerusalem artichoke velouté with burnt Roscoff onions, toasted hazelnuts and rocket oil, and roasted breast of partridge, cabbage cannelloni, cavolo nero and puy lentil and sage jus. A vegetarian option is also available.
Since L' Autre Pied’s inception in 2008, the restaurant has won critics and customers over with its imaginative menu and attentive staff. Leading travel guide TimeOut praised the creative use of the high quality ingredients, awarding the restaurant a tasty 4/5 stars. Users on Zagat were also positive, with a mouth-watering 91% of reviewers enjoying L' Autre Pied.
Dishes such as 'confit cod, lemon purée, black olive, sweet onion, tomato vinaigrette, coriander oil' left our waitresses a bit breathless - and us too. Despite the terse ticking-off of ingredients, the dish came together as a flawless, refreshing starter.

Creative food with a flair. Small and crowded restaurant, well worth the wait but make a reservation if you can. Halibut was perfectly prepared and the presentation was a work of art. Fantastic wine selection.
