MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Taking its cue from classic French cuisine, Daniel Boulud’s refined vision of food and beverage at the Surrey hotel is comprised of two spaces: the jewel box known as Bar Pleiades and this elegant, appealingly understated restaurant. Inside, ritzy residents and in-the-know globetrotters dine in a well-groomed, secluded room furnished with plush carpeting, rich wood accents and mirrored surfaces. Sparkling elements atop beautifully laid tables set off the spot’s conviviality, and gallant, smartly dressed servers display unwavering competence in their presentation of uniquely constructed and superb tasting compositions. Under the watch of Chef Aaron Bludorn, the kitchen makes culinary decisions that never disappoint. Peruse the menu divided into four distinctions ranging from the French classics and farmers' market-minded selections to seasonal offerings and globally inspired dishes. Classically done poulet rôti showcases evenly moist, crispy skinned chicken finished with a fragrant tarragon jus. For dessert, an intricately layered crêpe cake is garnished with rhubarb gelée and kissed with ricotta sorbet. Finally, warm and springy madeleines-a house signature-send diners on their way.
