Pétrus is to Michelin Stars what Aston Martin is to cars. Classic, symbolic and not trying to be the newest and hippest on the block, (becuse Hip doesnt last). Hip is only defined by a time period and then soon will be replaced by a newer model with spinning rims and flames shooting from the boot. Pétrus in the restaurant world, is a class act that doesnt need to shout it. It has a Michelin star that does the talking.
FYI the restaurant was named after the French wine Pétrus and not the Greek word for Rock.
I had wanted to go for quite a while and I save very few places until there is a memorable reason to go. This was one of them. I went for a celebration and we had the Chefs menu for 6 of us.It has had a bit of a history with changing head-chefs, ownership, moving locations and 3 stars in total but at two different locations…. So….. Who cares? If I had wanted to review their business records, I’d be reviewing for Companies House Online. This has Nothing to do with the food, quality and true luxury of this establishment.
