21 Feb Brasserie Zédel
A stone away from Piccadilly Circus, this Art Déco basement revives the splendour of the great Parisian brasseries. Corbin & King’s version is every bit as good as the original, with its outdated charm: the huge room is flamboyant and buzzing, there are salmon pink tablecloths and monogrammed plates, and penguin-style maîtres D’ zigzag between the tables.
If you hate sharing small plates, now is time for revenge. On the menu: œuf mayo, carottes râpées, andouillette, coq au vin, cassoulet, Saint-Honoré, profiterolesand many other French fare classics costing next to nothing, washed down with oldies but goodies. Not the best meal of your life, but one of the best value for money and the décor alone is worth the bite.
