Restaurant Review: Prix Fixe, Dean Street Soho

Last Friday, as part of early birthday celebrations I had dinner in Dean Street in London’s Soho area.  Prix Fixe (French for fixed price, meaning a set menu) is a small and unassuming restaurant, styled to look like a typical French Brasserie.

Inside, the table and chairs are basic and simple, with the decor representing a flavour of Paris.  However, we didn’t come to look at the pictures, but rather to eat the food.  The menu offers either a fixed price option of dinner at £12.90 for two courses before 7pm, or selection from the a la carte menu.  The 7pm restriction is a deliberate ploy to target the theatre-going crowd, who typically need to be done and finished by 7:30pm.

I decided to choose scallops as my starter, wrapped in pancetta and served with a celeriac puree and red onion marmalade.  The scallops were cooked perfectly, with the celeriac puree adding a delicate and creamy touch.

Main course was fillet steak, something I’m picky about, having lived in France for a number of years.  I’m pleased to say the steak was perfect, as was the fondant potato, with the real star of the dish the mushroom and peppercorn sauce.

Overall I’d rate the food as a 9/10 and definitely recommend it for a visit.
