A Review of Galvin Lim's Les Amis 2012-3: An Extended Interregnum

(Please note that Sebastien Lepinoy has now taken over as Resident Chef at Les Amis, with Galvin Lim returning to his previous role as Group Executive Chef.  My recent report on Lepinoy's Les Amis is here).

I recently walked back into Les Amis for the first time in over 12 months.  Not that I had anything against caretaker chef Galvin Lim, who, in his real life, is the Group Executive Chef of the Les Amis Group of Restaurants.  Former chef de cuisine Armin Leitgeb and Chef Patissier Daniel Texter departed in the middle of 2012, and in the interests of due process, I was waiting for a new chef to be appointed and settled in before I visited again for a review.
