Roux’s debut restaurant is a joint venture with her husband Diego Ferrari, the former head chef of Le Gavroche. Taking over the Bumpkin bistro on the corner of Ledbury Road in Notting Hill, the menu combines both Italian and French influence - incorporating both Roux and Ferrari’s expertise and heritage. The menu is divided into six character traits with up to three dishes to choose from in each section or opt for the tasting menu and choose a dish from each ‘trait’ for £78 or with matched wines for an additional £72.
