French Restaurants in St John's Wood
1. PLU French restaurant in St John's Wood 12 Blenheim Terrace - NW8
“It is a complete mystery how the Michelin guide has failed to recognise Elliot Moss’s wonderful food creations”, say followers of his tiny but “opulent” three-year-old in St John’s Wood, where the only option is an extended tasting menu. “The chef is a true artist who does everything himself: each phenomenal and fun dish looks too good to eat but the visuals are actually secondary to the insanely addictive deliciousness of the flavours” (“his foie gras dish leaves you desperate for ‘just one more mouthful’… and I don’t even like foie gras!”) Fooderati insiders, Koffmann & Vines, also waxed lyrical over their meal here this year, proclaiming it ‘a true gastronomic experience’. “May he go from strength to strength.”
2. Oslo Court French restaurant in St John's Wood Charlbert Street - NW8
“Let’s do the time warp again (…and again, and again, and again, and…)” – this happy relic at the foot of a Regent’s Park apartment block “hasn’t changed in 30 years, and why should it?” Stuck in perpetuity in the mid-1970s (complete with salmon-pink décor; long-serving waiters from that era; and a menu that’s not wittingly nostalgic, it just never changed) “it would take the hardest of hearts not to be moved to inexplicable joy by an occasional visit here”. The “amazing staff really look after you”, “you won’t leave hungry”, and the arrival of the dessert trolley provides a rapturous climax to the occasion. They are also terrific with kids, who often dine here as part of large family groups incorporating relatives at least 70 years their senior.
3. L’Aventure French restaurant in St John's Wood 3 Blenheim Terrace - NW8
“Run by the owner for 41 years and I have been a customer for over 35 years and the quality has never varied!” – Catherine Parisot’s “brilliant longstanding favourite” in St John’s Wood “never fails to delight”: in particular its cute interior and pretty location make it a top choice for a date. Under the “able guidance” of la patronne, it provides classic ‘cuisine bourgeoise’: “you always know what you are going to get as the menu never changes, but the food is always good”.
