Former Le Gavroche chef Elliot Moss is to open a French-focused fine dining restaurant in St John’s Wood, London, this Friday (25 October).

Plu, which takes its name from the French verb plaire, meaning ‘to please’, will be Moss’ first solo venture.

The 22-cover restaurant will serve a single 12-course tasting menu of ‘modern international dishes with a French accent’, and feature a cocktail terrace.

Priced at £125 per person, the menu will change regularly with Moss focusing on seasonal British ingredients.

At launch the menu is set to include a ‘Sunday roast’ of lamb tartare with potato galette and mint-hazelnut dressing; foie gras parfait with granny smith, botrytis, walnut, apple blossom and English butter crumble “float”; and a dessert of Kent strawberries with Champagne sabayon, basil and French butter cookies.

It will also feature a dish of gazpacho with aged balsamic presented in the style of Andy Warhol's Marilyn Diptych.

Plu will initially be a four-day operation, with a single service to be held each evening Wednesday to Saturday.  

Moss, who both trained and was a pastry chef at Le Gavroche, was awarded the Newcomer of the Year prize in the 2006 Good Food Guide.
