When it comes to picking the right appetiser at Coq d'Argent, the Devon king crab and basil pot with avocado salsa is a freshly made wonder; the way the crabmeat marries with the fresh avocado flavours in the mouth is something worth savouring. Main courses are split into their relevant categories, and the duck leg with pickled cherries and soft almonds in milk, glazed with baby turnips and fennel is quite rightly a popular choice amongst diners. For vegetarians visiting Coq d'Argent, there's a tantalising array of tarts and risottos to choose from, all given the same care and attention as the rest of the menu.
Not just a venue to visit for an evening meal, the restaurant also has a breakfast menu that's worthy of mention. Watching London wake up below while you enjoy the restaurant's Bayonne ham and grilled tomato Benedict - or if you're feeling especially hungry, try tackling the full English breakfast - is quite an experience, and it's lovely to see an eatery putting on a morning service of such high quality. In addition to this, Coq d'Argent has a Sunday lunch menu that can be enjoyed as a two or three-course experience.
Overall, Coq d'Argent offers a superb dining experience. The restaurant's location commands spectacular views of the Square Mile atop No. 1 Poultry; the French dishes are beautifully cooked, full of classic and contemporary flavours, and all served with impeccable professionalism amid the buzz of serious business.
