Owned and run by a local team, this French rendezvous is garbed in dressed-down style with exposed brick walls, bare tables, wine racks, wicker baskets and all sorts of culinary paraphernalia. During the day, Hackney locals drop by for wallet-friendly ‘petit déjeuner’ and brunch offers, plus weekday lunch deals promising one course and a drink for £7.99. Come nightfall, the venue transforms into a hip lounge and restaurant serving charcuterie boards and a roster of dyed-in-the-wool bourgeois classics ranging from mackerel rillettes with cumin bread or snails in their shells to coq au vin, duck confit with Puy lentils, steak-frites and courgette gratin – plus a ‘catch of the day’ and helpings of raclette to share. After that, try ‘mum’s chocolate slice’ or crème caramel. The wine list includes plenty of French regional names.
