How come Le Cassoulet still features more than 8 months after closing.

Bellevue Rendezvous in Wandsworth Common - super tasty, very reasonable (mains around 15 quid). My favourite!

Finding a sub-par overpriced French restaurant in London is about as easy as finding a greasy kebab stand. I'm dissapointed that the selection of restaurants you have chosen to highlight in this article all have a tremendous air of snobbery to them, which honestly doesn't help the negative connotation this cuisine already has with English people. Being a food blogger myself (www.yuppielunch.tumblr.com) and having lived on every continent and tried many different types of cuisines, I find that a good meal can come in every shape or form and from anywhere. Next time you want to have a great authentic french meal. I recommend. Chez Manny (http://www.chezmanny.com/). It is one of the only french restaurants in London which brings me back to when I lived in France for over 6 years.
