An instant smash-hit, this convivial Parisian-inspired steakhouse, on the site of the old Stock Exchange building, offers an excellent all-round fixed-price formula.
arely have the massed ranks of Britain’s finest national restaurant critics talked such unadulterated tripe as they did on the launch of London’s original outpost of a Parisian steakhouse, back in 2005. Very sensibly, the public took no notice at all, and the Marylebone restaurant has been a hit since day one.
The group has now launched a bigger, and even better, branch, in the heart of the City. Bigger it may be, but it’s already heaving. Well, what’s not to like? A tasty salad is followed by a hearty portion of steak (in two services) with ‘special sauce’ and unlimited frites, in a cosy, convivial and convenient setting.
And at eminently reasonable prices too. The basic all-in meal is £19 plus service. Recession or not – hey, even depression or not – that sounds to us like a pretty much perfect formula.
No booking, so get there early.
