Le Menar Review

Le Menar is featured in these Guides:

Top 10 things you need to know about Le Menar restaurant:

1) On your first trip to Le Menar, there’s a strong chance you’ll get a little lost. While the restaurant isn’t exactly hidden down one of London’s secret nooks or crannies, it does have a low-key outdoor façade and you may (like us) easily walk past it (several times).

2) When you do find the place and walk through the heavy, dark door, it’ll feel like entering through the wardrobe of an exotic version of Narnia.

3) Instead of a snow-covered forest, a lamppost and a faun named Mr. Tumnus, you’ll find a cosy atrium filled with long sofas plump with silk cushions, a shisha pipe and a smiling Maître d.

4) The restaurant’s approach to cuisine is modern and inspired by flavours from Asia and the Mediterranean. The menu is literally a melting pot.

5) Aperitif drinkers take note: the Aperol spritz is the new queen of the pre-dinner cocktail menu. Le Menar serves their version in a large wine glass, almost filled to the rim. We hereby declare our love for whoever’s in charge of pouring at the bar. (Imagine this in Aslan’s voice. It makes it sound more majestic).

6) The chef’s tasting mezze platter is perfect for two hungry beavers. Le Menar doesn’t do stingy, generously providing an amount of warm Lebanese flat bread that could feed two sons of Adam, two daughters of Eve and several beavers.

7) If you’re a bit of an Edmund and don’t do sharing, go for the chef’s favourite: za ata burrata, essentially a creamier ball of mozarella.

8) At Cair Paravel, the kings and queens would feast on monkfish. Le Menar flavour their fish dish with green harissa and surround it with batata harra (spiced potatoes), samphire and tomatoes.

9) If CS Lewis set his chronicles in North Africa, the White Witch would tempt Edmund with a luscious pot of saffron and pistachio crème brulee. Edmund would betray his siblings in a heartbeat and we wouldn’t blame him for a second.

10) Unfortunately, time does not stand still when you’re at Le Menar. At some point during the evening you’ll have to leave and re-enter the harsh reality of London life, work and taxes. Unlike the Pevensie children’s wardrobe, though, Le Menar’s door is always open (six days a week, at least).
