Even though the staff didn't understand my very best efforts at speaking French, this is a real little gem in Farringdon. The food is prepared with the utmost care, and tailored to sweep you off the grey London streets straight to romantic, luxurious France. It's like a mini holiday for the senses during your lunch break. Okay, okay, I'm exaggerating, but it really is a treat.
All the staff speak French, and make a point of doing so, which, along with the classic French all-star menu, is undoubtedly one of the main pillars of the concept.
Today was a sunny day in London, which allowed us to enjoy our salade Nicoise in the shade of an olive tree in the courtyard. Alright, it was a rather small one in a pot. But an olive tree nonetheless. After all, it's London. You do have to hold up your end of the bargain and dream a little.
Moi je dis 'bravo'.
