Chez BruceChef Bruce Poole cites Elizabeth David as one of his major influences, and it really shows. Instead of the elaborate fiddliness that characterises many top restaurants in London, Chez Bruce offers hearty peasant ingredients, tough, exciting textures and superb ingredients. The wine list and the cheese board also speak of a disturbing devotion to perfection. It's the kind of simple but flawless meal you would cook at home, given infinite patience and a bottomless shopping budget. Of course, you don't get a Michelin star without a certain amount of flashiness, and everything on the menu is beautifully presented. But above all, this is a restaurant where texture and flavour reign supreme.
