Prix Fixe, Soho

39 Dean Street

I caught up with old friends at Prix Fixe, as the name suggests aFrench restaurant,  located in the heart of Soho. It was a Saturday night and pretty busy. The set menus of the name weren't available at the time we visited, but the  a la carte options featured " exciting and contemporary French cuisine encompassing flavours from around the world."

Jegs went for 4 Atlantic rock oysters with the shallot vinaigrette.

I had the 'Escargot style grilled mussels' served in the traditional style for snails, with garlic, pernod and parsley butter and a herb parmesan crust. The flavours did drown out the mussel a little, but it was an interesting alternative to steaming them.

The seared tuna steak came with a stew of sautéed chorizo sausages, cherry tomatoes, chickpeas and fine beans and was one of the several fish dishes ordered.

I went for the baked whole lemon sole meunire with saffron potatoes, caper and parsley butter, the combination working really well.

The filleted roasted Seabass with baked medallion potatoes, baby shrimps, broad beans and fennel gremolata looked good and seemed to go down well.

The buzzing but efficient restaurant, good company and satisfying food made for a good evening.
