Le Bistro Savoir Faire

42 New Oxford Street, London, London, WC1A 1EP
Winner of The Gourmet Britain "Best Café/Budget Restaurant" Award 2012If a traditional French bistro is your type of thing (and we'll happily admit it's ours), here's a good one set over two floors- with all closely-packed tables and expected decorational trappings. It's also family-run which shows in their approach.

All is made on-site, from breads to sauces, from natural ingredients.

Expect the likes of 'Pan-Fried Mustard Chicken Livers on Potato Pancake'; 'Grilled Mussels with Pernod & Garlic Butter'; 'Smoked Paprika Aubergine with Tomato, Feta Cheese, Mint & Parsley Salad' and 'Pan-Fried Foie Gras with Caramelised Apple on Warm Brioche' among the starters.

Perhaps 'Rib Eye Steak with Bearnaise Sauce'; 'Fillet of Sea Bass with Mussel Risotto'; 'Treacle-Glazed Duck Magret with Campari Sauce & Gratin Dauphinois' and 'Boeuf Bourguignon' listed amonst the mains.

Finish with likes of 'Chocolate Mousse'; 'Crème Brulée' or 'Sticky Toffee Pudding'.

Service is both friendly and helpful.
