Despite changing hands, this French brasserie and its Gallic classics are still a hit with the pre-theatre crowds.
This two-floor Covent Garden restaurant and bar is now owned by Prescott & Conran - the group behind Boundary, Lutyens and the Albion venues, in Shoreditch and Bankside.
The look remains very much French brasserie, with an updated menu of Gallic classics that ranges from steak tartare, fish soup and moules marinières to îles flottantes and crème brûlée – plus daily and regional specials. There are express pre- and post-theatre menus, too.
The global wine list offers 25 red and 25 whites, all available either by the bottle or by the carafe, with around a third available by the glass. Craft beers and ciders also feature, with six options taking in the US, Sweden, Edinburgh, Somerset and France. Classic cocktails are given a twist.
This all day-dining bar and grill in Covent Garden serves prime steaks and burgers grilled in our Josper charcoal oven, alongside the likes of Lemon Sole Meunière and Butter Roasted Cod.
Needless to say our beef takes top billing using both USDA prime and English grass fed cattle from crosses of Black Angus, Charolais and Limousine cross cattle.
Cocktails and drinks are served daily in the bustling and vibrant copper clad bar and lounge, beautifully designed by the renowned Martin Brudnizki Design Studios. The striking reclaimed opaline lights add to the warm and convivial atmosphere in a decor of dark green leather banquettes and mosaic marbled flooring.
For your private dining look no further than our two oak-panelled private dining rooms on the upper floor. They offer comfortable and spacious surroundings for all kinds of special occasions, breakfast meetings, business lunches, corporate dinners, celebratory parties or just a great night out with friends. Both private rooms benefit from natural daylight with windows overlooking William IV Street.
