Le Be Fin finally closed its doors after 40 years in mid 2013. A new restaurant will replace it, to be run by Justin Bogle, who previously was head chef at Gilt (itself now closed) in New York. The brief notes below are now of historical interest only.
This featured a seriously over-the-top dining room that looked like an attempt at a room from Versailles. If only the same attention went into the service and cooking. I did have a good dessert here but the rest of the meal was very ordinary, and I was served by someone who looked and behaved like he was on the run from the law. Deeply overrated and very expensive.
