This Soho branch is one of four London restaurants from a group that kicked off with a Paris original, back in 1959. That one's still going strong, and the expansion has now taken in New York, too.
They've made their name with the only dish on the main menu: steak-frites. It's preceded by a simple green salad with walnuts and a mustard vinaigrette – and there are a few French desserts and cheeses to follow – but most head here solely for the USP.
The steak is cooked to order and served not with the traditional herb butter, but with their own 'secret' sauce, apparently guarded closely by the daughter of the original owner, Paul Gineste de Saurs. It comes accompanied by a bucket-load of top-notch fries.
A short selection of wines is offered, too.
