Pascal Aussignac left France with business partner Vincent Labeyrie to champion la cuisine de Gascogne at his restaurant, Club Gascon, in 1998.

Now the co-owner of a small empire of French exclaves in London, Aussignac's roster of fine venues has grown to include Cellar Gascon, romantic bistro Comptoir Gascon, Le Cercle, Cigalon and Baranis.

But Club Gascon remains Aussignac's flagship restaurant, holding a Michelin star and having been awarded a myriad awards since opening in the late nineties, including Best New Restaurant (Time Out), Restaurant of the Year (AA Guide and Good Food Guide) and Best French Restaurant (Hotel and Restaurant Awards).
 
Aussignac accentuates Gallic staples with global influences - such as wasabi Chantilly - and makes the most of underrated ingredients like edible flowers and the peripheral parts of beasts – pig’s trotters may come served as a "cake" with white pudding, for example.
 
Seasonality leads the way in his dishes and for all their innovation and flair, they retain a solid, rustic French heartiness; recalling Aussignac’s origins in South West France.

Baranis
Baranis It shouldn’t surprise anyone familiar with Pascal Aussignac’s French empire in Britain that his bar Baranis houses the only indoor pétanque pitch in the United Kingdom. Aussignac’s playful streak occasionally shows up on his menus, but here, it’s everywhere: the food, the décor, and of course on the pitch.

Cigalon
Cigalon In the 1935 Pagnol comedy Cigalon, the eponymous chef is so in love with his own rarefied cuisine that he refuses to cook for mere customers. Pascal Aussignac’s newest arrival may lack its namesake’s hilarious pretension, but diners will feel just as lucky as the fictional Cigalon’s did as they tuck into their meals.
