There are a few reasons why this Harringey restaurant could take on a moniker such as this. The most obvious, given that it's located in an old Barclays bank, is an erroneous Gallic reference to the building's previous inhabitant - but then this place focuses on steaks and burgers, rather than French fare. Perhaps, then, it's simply hinting at the fact that you can park your derriere on one of their benches - to smoke a shisha, maybe.
If you're tucking into the food, steaks include rib-eye, sirloin, t-bone and a rump of lamb, while burgers range from a classic beefburger to a 'deluxe' with melted Stilton, a 'cabernet' with shallots cooked in red wine, and a 'tower burger combo' - a beef burger and a chicken fillet with melted Cheddar, mixed salad and mayonnaise. Chicken burgers feature, too.
Mocktails and floral teas offer intriguing alternatives to alcoholic options including bottles of Efes, Peroni, Corona and Stella, as well as shots and well-known spirits.
