Square Meal Review of Assiette Anglaise ?


Occupying the former site of Gallic favourite Morgan M, Assiette Anglaise continues the local tradition of serving up great French food in a friendly neighbourhood setting. Bringing the classic bistro look bang up to date, the buzzy interior is decked out with pale grey walls, modern art and white-topped tables, although the menu is full of bourgeois evergreens – from crispy frog’s legs with punchy tomato sauce to a generous bouillabaisse and exemplary créme caramel served with buttery almond biscuits. Elsewhere, a chunky textured rabbit and pistachio terrine delivers intense rustic flavours, and international influences creep into a dish of tender soy-glazed slow-cooked pork belly, served with salt-and-vinegar cabbage and a side of crisp garlic and thyme fries. The short all-French wine list from top supplier Les Caves de Pyrène is an added attraction, alongside classic cocktails and locally brewed beers.

Now my French isn’t very good, hence my lowly D grade CSE, so sometimes I feel a little intimidated by the menus in French establishments. But at Assiette Anglaise I really needn’t have worried, we felt relaxed and at ease as soon as we walked through the door. I always like to look up the translation of restaurant names, so I punched in Assiette Anglaise into Google to see what would pop up. Assiette – a plate or a course of a meal, that makes sense. Assiette Anglaise – cold meats!...

  2. I had a fantastic lunch last week at Assiette Anglaise, a relatively new restaurant for Highbury and a welcome one indeed! It’s is a fine little neighbourhood brasserie which locals should be proud to call their own. Everybody else? This all day eatery’s only a short stroll away from Highbury and Islington Station (and is just about as close to Holloway Road and Caledonian Road stations too). The delighful meal I had was certainly worth the time I spent on public transport to get there...
