“Intriguing southern French-inspired food”, “simply cooked from fresh ingredients”, is the draw at former Rotorino chef Alex Jackson’s three-year-old in “an off-the-beaten-track area” near Silicon Roundabout. “Stripped-down décor” and “great natural and low-intervention wines” help set the “very casual” tone.

Aptly named, this “small but perfectly formed” two-year-old, near Old Street station, is a “real find” on account of ex-Rotorino chef, Alex Jackson’s, very accomplished southern French-inspired cooking – “thoughtful, without being over-prepared and foam-ridden”. “Intriguing wine list”, too.

“A short but interesting menu inspired by the south of France” realised by Alex Jackson generated gushing press reviews for the opening of this “slightly hard-to-find yearling, just off City Road” (part of Stevie Parle’s empire), but while reporters generally judge it to be “authentic and delicious” they can also find it “something of a let down after all the publicity”. The naming of the venture is all too apt, and even fans can find this “small, high-ceilinged space” to be “too crowded” and “very noisy with all the hard surfaces”.

Summary

Former Rotorino head chef Alex Jackson cooks much of the French-centric cuisine over a charcoal grill in Stevie Parle’s simple, packed-in newcomer, between Angel and Old Street, which opened in September 2016.
