LPM Restaurant & Bar continues its reign with a brand-new business lunch
Unless you have been living under an extremely large rock, you have likely oohed and ahhed over the garlic butter-drenched escargot at LPM Restaurant & Bar. And the burrata. And the warm prawns with olive oil and lemon juice.
The French Mediterranean restaurant is a bona fide dining institution that has been topping residents’ lists since its opening a decade ago. No matter weekend or weekday, you will find the airy restaurant packed wall to art-splashed wall thanks to its consistently delicious cuisine and, with the debut of its brand-new business lunch offering, it solidifies its status as go-to spot for meetings, long lunches and everything in between.
The recent refurbishment brings a renewed energy to the space and the menu has received a makeover too, with Chef Adriano integrating more seasonal ingredients. The business lunch is available in both two- and three-course options, the latter including a starter, main course and dessert alongside the salad of the day.
Starters include a refreshing sea bream tartare with zingy yuzu; wholesome grilled aubergine with mozzarella and prawns; and the summery quinoa salad with raisins and goji berries. Duck confit with orange and endive – a reinvented classic – and grilled sirloin with mustard sauce are the heartier main options, while the cod fillet is a lighter alternative for those saving room for dessert. We recommend you do save room, as the peach melba is an elevated take on the homey classic and is the perfect finale.
If you are looking to celebrate (or, rather, aren’t heading back to the office after lunch) complement your feast with a selection of Provençal grape or playful cocktails from the Jean Cocteau menu. Divided into four chapters, the Jean Cocteau menu is both a celebration of the artist’s works and a showcase of the talented mixologists at LPM. Each beverage is concocted to represent a significant person or event that influenced the artist’s life, including a floral creation that pays homage to his relationship with Coco Chanel and the iconic No. 5 fragrance.
LPM Restaurant & Bar has transformed the business lunch from an impersonal affair to an afternoon to look forward to. The seasonal nature of the ingredients means an ever-evolving menu where dishes can appear for as little as weeks, so tuck in before it is too late. Available 12pm to 3pm weekdays. Book now
