A London outpost for (equally tiny) Paris brasserie Ferdi, named for the son of owners Alicia and Jacques Fontanier. The Parisien original is known as a fashionista hang-out so, judging by the location, this place will soon be swarming with the rich and the beautiful too. Walk-ins only at lunch, but bookings will be taken (by text, of course) for dinner.

Ferdi Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Just dreadful, basic food badly executed and the atmosphere doesn't make up for it."
"Never been so disappointed by a restaurant. Tiny, cramped, rude staff, pretty average food (and a bizarre menu). What irritated me most was the attitude of the fellow diners. Literally every other diner was on their mobile phone, while one family had actually set up a TV show on an iPad and were playing it full volume. The staff did not bat an eyelid. Contrast that to an experience I had at Lemonia a couple of years ago where they told me off for letting my one year old son watch an I pad at the table. Different cultures... different attitudes to what is civilised behaviour. Ferdi seems to cater to quite a specific market. I won't be going back."
