Only the black lacquered tiling of the building gives away the location of Le Fantôme, the new venue from the crew behind Le Baron. The enormous space is a fantasy venue for fans of retrogaming: as well as a huge bar, formica chairs and faux leather banquettes, the Fantôme offers a fistful of arcade games, a Pacman table (which is often reserved) and a superb table football set. Drinks-wise, the resident mixologist is an inspired Californian called David West who refuses to churn out mojitos, but has instead produced a list of five inventive cocktails to go with the menu of hefty pizzas (we liked one with porcini, pancetta, ceps, buffalo mozzarella and artichoke hearts for just €6), or salads at €12.
