Poissonnerie de L’Avenue

About Poissonnerie de L’Avenue

Poissonnerie de l'Avenue fish restaurant in London's ever-so-smart Chelsea has been a hotbed of fine dining since swinging London days. It's older than your dad. But the fish is fresh as the morn, thanks to the same-ownership fishmonger next door. Shiny chrome doorframes reflect the passing catwalk of Brompton Cross, while indoors the wood paneling, lobster-motif carpeting, gilt-framed seascapes and stiff table linens remain reassuringly unchanged from decades past. And, if you are a celeb, you'll find you can relax here among the unshockably well-mannered. The seasonally-changing menu includes starter of classic escargots de Bourgogne maison, main course of sealed yellowfin tuna with coarse salt and virgin olive oil, and dessert of tarte tatin aux pommes. Heavily French wine list. Non-fish dishes console meat-eaters.
