French Restaurants in Camden Town
1. Wildflower Irish restaurant in Camden Buck Street Market, 180-188 Camden High Street - NW1
“It’s amazing how much fun you can have dining in a shipping container!!” – Irish chef Adrian Martin’s July 2020 newcomer may be thus housed in Camden Town’s new eco market on Buck Street, but – with its incongruously posh decor and £65 eight-course menu (£110 if you go for the wine matching) – it’s certainly not in the grungy, street food category (even if you do have to go outside to the loos in the market). As the name hints, the focus is on seasonality and foraged food, but early press reviews – while not writing the enterprise off – have given it a slightly bumpy ride. Some of our early reporters are much more upbeat, though, hailing “inspirational and outstanding cuisine” that its most ardent supporters would put “in the same class as Aulis and Story”.
2. Philippe Conticini French restaurant in Camden 732-736 North Yard, Chalk Farm Road - NW1
Just a few years after leaving London (and his two Pâtisserie des Rêves stores) behind, Philippe Conticini is back, with this huge new Camden Market patisserie, traditionally tiled and where much of the seating is outside on a large sunny days terrace. (There’s also a smaller, less characterful outlet now nearby (since November 2020) in Buck Street Market).
3. Michael Nadra French restaurant in Primrose Hill 42 Gloucester Ave - NW1
“Top-quality cooking” at “very reasonable prices” is a consistent refrain from aficionados of Michael Nadra’s neighbourhood duo, in Chiswick and Camden Town. They are a slightly odd couple – the former tightly packed off the high street; the latter out-of-the-way, near the Regent’s Canal, and with a “nice little courtyard for warm evenings”. In both locales, the modern European menu uses “high-quality ingredients” and is “pleasantly served by charming staff who meet all demands”. Recent changes have been generally welcomed: “it’s more of a brasserie-style offering now (I preferred the old cooking, but I’m in a minority of people I know)”. Note – Chiswick remains ‘temporarily closed’ as of September 2021, but a relaunch is promised ‘as soon as possible’.
