Concierge.com's insider take:

This multimillion-pound collaboration between triple-Michelin laureate Pierre Gagnaire and Mourad Mazouz (owner of Momo, the groovy North African restaurant off Regent Street; 25 Heddon St., Piccadilly, W1; 44-207-434-4040; www.momoresto.com) has completely transformed a grand period building. The reinvented space—done up with a slightly weird modern interior and pitched to a rich, arty crowd—houses a bistro (The Gallery), a restaurant (The Library & Lecture Room), assorted bars, a nightclub, and a pâtisserie. Brace yourself: In the Library & Lecture Room—luxuriously upholstered with honey-colored quilted walls and bull's-eye mirrors—you'll run across probably the highest prices in London (expect to pay £500 for dinner for two if eating à la carte). Surrender to finely wrought dish-ettes: a charcuterie starter with silky goose foie gras; pigeon breast perfumed with juniper; langoustine four ways; veal sweetbreads; breast of Chalosse chicken poached in Mersault; partridge and wild boar; lobster tail with apple sauce. There are five different menus: from à la carte down to the plat du jour.
