Roux at Parliament Square
Michel Roux Jr opened Roux at Parliament Square in 2010, and the restaurant has since become renowned for its relaxed yet stylish setting, impeccable service, and contemporary European menus from Head Chef Steve Groves.
Steve combines his great knowledge of traditional cookery with a modern approach, passion and flair. Classic dishes are reinvented through inspired contemporary touches, driving constant innovation in the menu. Using seasonal produce sourced from the very best suppliers across the UK, guests can expect starters such as Dorset crab with apple, fermented chilli and dashi and Pork cheek, carrot, ale, and Mangalitsa black pudding. For mains, Test Valley trout with leek, pine nuts and watercress may sit alongside Westcombe Ricotta gnudi with hen of the woods, salsify and egg yolk and Dry-aged duck with beetroot, chicory and Yukon Gold potato. A series of innovative and perfectly balanced desserts provide a satisfying conclusion to any meal at Roux at Parliament Square, with options including Pear with pistachio, honey and crème fraiche, or Guanaja chocolate with banana, peanut and yoghurt.
In 2017, Roux at Parliament Square underwent an extensive refurbishment led by Rosendale Design. Blending contemporary influences with the building’s historic Georgian style, the space now reflects Steve’s innovative menus. The beautiful Grade II listed building, with its elegant 1920s feel, has been enhanced with dark wood panelling and a luxurious colour scheme of teal and burnt orange, whilst the impressive wine display spanning the back wall creates a striking focal point for the room. Furthermore, the Drawing Room now proudly displays a selection of original architectural sketches of the building itself and many of the surrounding Westminster landmarks, embedding the restaurant within its iconic London location.
