To many this relaxed, undemanding and effortlessly stylish canteen is a breath of fresh air. The antithesis of a Cantonese kitchen, it's a modern French bistro with a pared-down Scandi charm, where the approach to modern French food, peppered with a smattering of dishes (and ingredients) from the global larder, is as uncompromising as it is brilliant. Unsurprisingly it has caught the eye of the Michelin man.
Try naturally leavened bread and roast chicken with pommes Anna, washed down with a glass of Vouvray Sec or, if you're upping the ante, a glass of chilled Saint-Aubin. The world is suddenly a better place!
Cocktails and a private room for up to 12 guests completes the attractive picture.
Note that chef Daniel Calvert has recently left and Matthew Kirley (ex Coi and L20) and Lauren Kirley (ex French Laundry) have taken over the kitchen and front of house respectively as the restaurant plans a bold new era including a change of location (but not neighbourhood), soon to be announced.
