Two-Michelin-starred Mayfair icon Le Gavroche is celebrating 50 years in service with a limited edition ‘Back to the Classics' menu.
Curated by chef-patron Michel Roux Jr, the five-course, seasonally changing menu will include classic Le Gavroche dishes from throughout the restaurant's history, beginning with 1967, the year it was opened.
He commented: "I am incredibly proud of the restaurant's 50th anniversary, and the journey it's taken to get here.
Brothers Albert and Michel Roux opened the restaurant in 1967 and Le Gavroche went on to become the first UK restaurant to be awarded one, two and three Michelin stars in 1974, 1977 and 1982 respectively. It retained its three-star rating until 1993.
Michel Roux Jr, son of Albert, took over the kitchen in 1991, at which point he relaxed the rule requiring male diners to wear ties. The dress code has since been further relaxed by no longer requiring guests to wear jackets.
