Looking every centimetre the classic French brasserie, but boasting a thoroughbred British menu, this restaurant within St Pancras International is born out of the best of London & Paris: a true culinary entente cordiale. Warm woods & brass fittings form the backdrop, with smartly clad staff delivering equally smart food. There’s always plenty of shellfish, from rock oysters to dressed Cornish crab; otherwise start with something warming – a salad of Irish black pudding with bacon & a poached egg, say. Mains continue the patriotic theme (Scottish scallops with lobster sauce, burgers with Stilton), as do quintessential puds of strawberries & cream or rhubarb trifle. Even breakfast takes its cue from this side of the Channel: think smoked salmon & scrambled eggs, porridge or full English. Only the one-page wine list makes the return trip to the Continent, with a French-led selection plus a smattering of bottles from elsewhere. However, the bar boasts a detailed, 70-strong selection of whiskies, including rare bottles from now-defunct distilleries such as Port Ellen, and special cask finishes.
