Find this good brasserie on the ground floor of a new-build residential block, off the York Road, east of Wandsworth Bridge. The bashfulness of it's location and difficulty in parking, have so far confined it's customers to locals - plus those in the know!
It's worth seeking out because of the quality of its food - which is considerably better than often experienced in similar establishment in Paris.
Expect a rustic feel, with bare tables - but the whole jazzed-up with fresh flowers and smiling staff.
On the food front, breakfast brings pastries and good breads with homemade jam through omelettes to 'Full French' - while the menu expands for the lunch & dinner periods with dishes such as 'Moules Marinière'; 'Pan-Fried Foie Gras with Apple, Lime & Chestnuts'; 'Duck Rillettes'; 'Mediterranean Fish Soup' and 'Steak Tartare' setting the style for starters.
Perhaps 'Salade Niçoise; 'Red Mullet Tart with Vegetables & Anchovy Tart'; 'Roast Fillet of Cod with Chervil Roots & Meat Jus'; 'Tomato & Mustard Tart'; 'Boeuf Bourguignon'; 'Roast Landes Chicken with Mash & Jus' and 'Sirloin Steak with Homemade Fries & Béarnaise Sauce' listed among the mains.
A few desserts might include 'Crème Brulée'; 'Thin Apple Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream' and 'Little Chocolate Pots with a freshly-cooked Madeleine'.
Friendly and helpful service.
