Square Meal Review of NAC ?

Opened by three childhood friends with a love of food and drink, the North Audley Cantine (N.A.C) is a chilled-out and “stylistically stunning” Mayfair bistrot/cocktail lounge offering French sharing plates in a cool, clean-lined setting of whitewashed walls, brown leather banquettes and contemporary lighting, with gorgeous crockery and bread served in “stripy paper bags”. Graze your way through gussied-up classics served on mismatched willow-pattern plates – think tuna niçoise, ‘oeuf parfait’ with forest mushrooms, grissini-crusted veal escalope or seared scallops with roasted butternut squash. Cheese platters go down well with a glass or two of knowledgeably sourced wine, before you hit the sweet spot with profiteroles, madeleines or dark chocolate tart and hazelnut ice cream. Downstairs, the basement lounge/bar has been rebooted in retro-chic, Rive Gauche style and renamed Chez Chow in honour of the chef/patron’s diminutive dog.

    The Food Judge :: N.A.C. Qu’est-ce que c’est?

    I kept getting the name wrong, before I worked out that it stood for North Audley Cantine. Not canteen, nor cantina, just cantine. It’s French.
    I’d been here when it opened and we were the only people eating. Then it was all sharing plates and I remember it being a little confusing; they just seemed to be serving three-quarter sized versions of conventional dishes. But I’d remembered that it was well-prepared and I’d been meaning to come back. Like a few places along North Audley Street, they have tables outside for you to while away the afternoon, if you like that sort of thing.
    Eight months on and it’s still...
