Harden's says

Upstairs at the Three Compasses in Smithfield, a pub that's stood the test of time (over 300 years), Henry Harris has once again revived his Racine concept with this bouchon. Even the old Knightsbridge sign has been brought out of retirement for the occasion.

"The Bouchon Racine is intended to be the antithesis of the type of restaurant where the chef might apply tweezers when arranging the food on the plate. But my wife and I eat on a regular basis at both Casa Fofó and Nest which both serve very very tasty multi-course “taster” menus, and will continue to do so. However the Racine Racine is perfect for an outing with the lads where conversation is the primary consideration. Having said that Racine is a very welcome return to the type of offering that Silvia and I used to enjoy most about the two week touring holidays we used to take in France in the 60’s and 70’s. One of the highlights of the whole occasion was the superb service offered both at the table and downstairs in the bar. I will certainly be back, both with my wife and with the Lads!"
