PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
PM24 may sound cryptic but it’s merely shorthand for classic French style fused with modern bistro dining. The newest addition to the Press Club Group, PM24 is presided over by French chef Philippe Mouchel, who first visited our shores for Restaurant Paul Bocuse, and returned to open the highly regarded Brasserie at Crown. At PM24, casual, contemporary French cuisine is done simply but executed perfectly. The dining space is decked out in classic bistro style, with Bentwood chairs and leather banquettes, while large windows flood the high-ceilinged room with natural light.

The open kitchen houses the star of the show, an eye-catching red rotisserie responsible for the poster children of the menu – corn-fed duck, and a succulent rack of lamb crusted with herbs, mustard and breadcrumbs. The slow-roasted organic chicken, flavoured simply with rosemary, preserved lemon, salt and pepper, and paired with vegetables basted in the rotisserie juices, is the ultimate comfort food. Non-rotisserie items such as suckling pig croquettes with green lentil ragout, hapuku fillet with a creamy bouillabaisse fumet, fennel and olives, or ox tripe with apple cider and calvados are equally well executed, unfussy dishes.

Proudly old-school dishes include starters such as French onion soup, country style terrine, and Burgundy style snails with garlic and parsley butter, and rich tomato and shallot fondue. Traditionalists will love the dessert list featuring fresh peach crêpe with saffron custard, or Tahiti vanilla crème brulee which is ceremoniously caramelised at the table. The classic Paris-Brest, its slightly chewy choux pastry filled with a light praline cream, is a sweet highlight. An excellent French-focused wine list boasts some fine choices by the glass, and an impressive spread of Old and New World vintages by the bottle.

PM24 sees Mouchel focusing on what he does best. This modern bistro incorporates light, contemporary flavours with exemplary technique and classic French style.
