Described as warm, convivial, relaxed and elegant, Boulestin is inspired by X. Marcel Boulestin, the renowned food writer, the world’s first TV chef and proprietor of the original eponymous restaurant, opened in 1927.
M. Boulestin’s knowledge and love of his country’s cuisine enabled him to showcase French recipes to the world in the early part of the last century. And it’s his level of passion that founder Joel Kissin has brought back to the London restaurant scene. More than half of the dishes on today’s menus are from M. Boulestin’s pre-war cookbooks, including Oeuf en Gelée, Jambon Persillé, Cassoulet and Daube of Beef. The latter dishes are from our Winter menu but in the Summer we also have dishes such as Tuna Carpaccio, Salade Nicoise, Grilled Gambas, Crab Linguini and a Marinated Steak Salad.
Xavier Marcel Boulestin was all about inspiring food, impeccable taste and attention to detail. Today at Boulestin we are reviving his ethos to keep his legacy alive. Please click to see our menus.
