RIP Michael Roux – the man who transformed London’s restaurant scene

There was some sad news last week, as we learned that chef Michael Roux had passed away at the age of 78.

This gastronomic genius single-handedly kick-started the modern British obsession with good food. Since arriving on our shores in the late 60s as a humble pastry chef in his brother’s new Chelsea restaurant, Roux has trained and inspired many of today’s leading chefs. These include Marco Pierre White, Pierre Koffman and Monica Galletti.

Indeed, if it wasn’t for Michael Roux, the chances are that you wouldn’t have anywhere to take our outcall London escorts for a sophisticated dinner date. Below are 4 London restaurants which probably wouldn’t be around today if it hadn’t been for the late, great Michael Roux.

Le Gavroche, Mayfair
This is the restaurant owned by Michel’s brother which first drew the young pastry chef to the UK. It started off life in fashionable Chelsea, before switching to Mayfair in 1981. Now run by his nephew Michel Roux Jr, Le Gavroche is still known as the best place in town for classical French cuisine, and currently boasts 2 Michelin stars. If you are thinking of the best place to introduce a new London escort to the local restaurant scene, you could choose no better place than La Gavroche.
King’s Road Steakhouse & Grill, Chelsea.

One of the Le Roux’s early proteges was Marco Pierre White, who went on to start a chain of his own Michelin-starred restaurants. After several high-profile tantrums (including making a young Gordon Ramsay burst into tears), White temporarily retired from the restaurant business, before returning with this steakhouse on the King’s Road. If you are looking for the best cuts of beef in London, any of our Argentinian escorts would love to accompany you here and you can test the a la carte menu together.

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Chelsea

That dressing down by White didn’t put Gordon Ramsay off the chef game for long. He later went on to become a temperamental restaurateur and TV celeb in his own right, opening a series of high-end French cuisine eateries around the world. The best of them is this Le Roux-inspired joint on Royal Hospital Road. The waiting list might seem to be never-ending, but any elegant Brazilian escort would love to join you there if you do manage to arrange a table.
Marcus, Knightsbridge

Celebrity chef Marcus Wareing also trained at Roux’s La Gavroche restaurant, before embarking on a glittering career as head chef at various 5* hotels across the capital. As well as replacing Michel Roux Jr. as a judge on BBC’s Masterchef, Wareing now runs the Marcus restaurant at the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge. At this Michelin-starred eatery you can enjoy contemporary fresh British food with a classic French twist. Any of our Knightsbridge SW1 escorts would be the perfect companion for a date with you at the Berkeley, and with the best rooms in town, you could even make a night of it.

These 4 romantic London restaurants wouldn’t be around today if it hadn’t been for Michel Roux. We think it would be a great way to celebrate his life by paying a visit to one of these eateries this spring. And if you are looking for a sparkling conversationalist to help you better enjoy these restaurants, then we recommend the company of one of our elite Latin London escorts. They are sure to make the visit a memorable one.
