I'm a sucker for a proper, old-style French restaurant. An Art Deco, zinc-barred, set lunch kind of place that does a nice line in Kirs, Noilly Prat and rare lagers like Meteor, and has a semi-open kitchen that garnishes absolutely everything with parsley chiffonade. Except the crème brûlée. And there is always a crème brûlée. On that basis alone, Le Bistrot Pierre was worth checking out. The menu could disappoint those expecting things to be, well, 'French'. There are none of the things that you would order as a joke, no frogs' legs, escargots or andouillette that are fine when you're in France but on the rare occasion you do find somewhere brave enough to put them on a menu for squeamish rosbifs they're inevitably frozen or tinned and dropped, half-arsed, on a plate like the culinary freak show that they are in Britain. What there is instead is a lot of things that appeal to the appetite; buzzwords like 'smoked garlic sausage' make up dishes that are an assortment of French components rather than straight-up copies, like brioche and mushrooms with crispy Alsace bacon or Burgundian honey pudding with double ginger ice cream...
