Brasserie ChavotAfter a few years’ absence, Eric Chavot’s return to London was hotly anticipated. A protegé of Pierre Koffman, diners wanted to know if he still had the magic that won him two stars while at The Capital Hotel.

All I can say is that of the dishes I’ve tried, they’ve all been wonderful, and Eric is a very warm and friendly guy.

Arriving for the shoot, I spotted Matthew Fort and Tom Parker-Bowles stumbling happily through the dining room on their way out. At least two contented customers then…
