Squaremeal Review of Colbert ?

“You could be in Paris” at this grand, feel-good rendezvous, so sit back and dream of 1920s Montmartre amid its timeless mix of art-deco prints, red leather banquettes and black-and-white tiled floors. Boasting Messrs Corbin & King’s matchless attention to detail, this close relation of The Wolseley et al is a delightful, rollicking room overseen by energetic waiters in long black aprons. With a vast choice of dishes ranging from croque monsieur to pots of beluga caviar, the carte has something for every occasion, although it’s better to plump for the reliably Gallic middle ground – say plump garlicky snails, salade Niçoise, steak tartare or cassoulet. There’s an equally alluring bar too, so pop in for a glass of Sancerre or hunker down with a coffee and pretend you’re Hemingway. “Full of life and a great bonus for the local scene”, concludes one fan, failing to notice service can on occasions hit the skids.

The place was always heaving so they really should have focussed more on keeping their landlord happy.
    After a long wait and a refit it reopened in 2012 as Colbert. Corbin & King, the people behind the Wolseley and Delaunay (and Brasserie Zedel, one of my favourites)...
