This is everything it seeks to be and should be. Genuinely French in attitude and cuisine, without any arrogance. Lovely friendly service and classic dishes, served without table cloths or other fanciness. Truly a bistro, with good wine as well.
The customers at lunch are drawn from the surrounding legal precinct – a young pair of lawyers, 2 partners duchessing a corporate client, a group of older practitioners exchanging gossip. This is the way the world should be for a sophisticated bistro like this. Long may it be here.
