Description

Club Gascon is a Michelin-starred salute to haute French cuisine in the City of London. The specially selected five-course tasting menu offers delicious dishes, including the restaurant's award-winning and innovative take on traditional foie gras.

Chef Pascal Aussignac hails from Toulouse, and his Gascony roots are evident in the imaginative dishes he dreams up for this seductive menu. Aussignac's skills were sharpened with the help of some of France's master chefs, such as Gerard Vie, Alain Dutournier and Guy Savoy. Having opened Club Gascon in 1998 with much critical acclaim, it was little surprise when the restaurant gained its first Michelin star shortly afterwards, in 2002.

Club Gascon has a culinary edge with creative concoctions that make it wonderfully unique. Flavours are bold, including dishes such as Ox Oh La La: marbled duck foie gras, oxo, plum wine and Armagnac. Club Gascon's wine cellar is also well stocked with numerous specially imported wines. Wine pairings to the tasting menu are available, and chosen by the knowledgeable head sommelier.

The five-course tasting menu has been carefully selected by Aussignac to feature the finest in-season ingredients. You will also take home a personalised celebration card to commemorate your evening, signed by chef Pascal Aussignac himself.

Sample tasting menu:

  • Chestnut & black truffle cappuccino, grilled oyster & “Tastou”
  • Smoked duck terrine, yuzu, glazed coffee & cardamom
  • Seared sturgeon, oceanic bouillon, samphire & fregola
  • Roast venison, cauliflower ribs, bone marrow & grand veneur sauce
  • Rhubarb variation, hibiscus & orange sanguine croquante

Reviews

  • Fantastic food, service and atmosphere

    Food, service and atmosphere was excellent

    Good experience

    Very good experience - The only slight concern was that the chairs were extremely uncomfortable!

  • Perfect in every way

    This is the best restaurant I have ever visited and I ran a mystery diner company for 13 years so have good experience. It was perfect in every way. The concierge service made everything smooth and seamless event to the point of arranging champagne and chocolate complimentary for my daughters birthday.

    Went out of their way for us

    The front of house staff were amazing, friendly not pretentious in the slightest and went out of their way to make our experience a good one.

  • They made it special

    The service in the restaurant was fantastic, they noted it was my partners birthday and made it very special for him

    Professional Service, Wonderful Tasting Menu

    This was excellent. I was asked by TRULY if this was a special occasion and I stated that it was my husband's birthday. They took a note of his name and when we arrived at the restaurant a card was waiting on our table, the restaurant wished him happy birthday and they brought out a chocolate with a candle. Wonderful service.

  • What An Experience

    Had the tasting menu with wine flights. Amuse bouche & pre dessert, so very good value. Food & wine was all excellent & really good service. All you would expect from a Starred restaurant.

    Outstanding French Cuisine

    I took my girlfriend here recently for her birthday and was looking for a restaurant that would give us an evening to remember. Club Gascon certainly does not disappoint on any front: outstanding food, great service and a lovely setting & atmosphere.

    If you are looking for something special for an evening I would thoroughly recommend this gift.

  • Imaginative Gascon cuisine

    I was taken as a birthday celebration to this small restaurant which seemed to be hidden away in the middle of London. We had arranged to have the tasting menu with the paired wines offered by the sommelier.

    We are familiar with Gascon food, but this was Gascon raised to Michelin starred quality.

    Each course was a taste combination that was as pleasant as unexpected. The wines that were offered matched, complimented and enhanced the taste of the food to a degree I have not come across before.

    The staff were friendly, courteous and described each course, explained the heritage of each wine, where it came from and why they were offering it with each course.

    Overall a very nice evening - many thanks to Truly and the staff of Club Gascon.
