Square Meal Review of Chez Elles Bistroquet ?

A little bastion of Gallic joie de vivre in the heart of touristy Banglatown (aka Brick Lane), Chez Elles is unreformed bistro through and through. Birdcages, all manner of decorative tiles festooned around the bar, a hotchpotch of prints, map and other curios on the walls, close-packed tables, French music, cheery service and a general air of cramped bonhomie set the mood. As for the food, look no further than rustic saucissons, Maison Androuet cheeses, rillettes, escargots and soupe à l’oignon followed by confit duck with red cabbage, entrecôte with peppercorn sauce or moules-frites with Roquefort sauce. To conclude, consider crêpes Suzettes, gooey chocolate cake or crème brûlée with pistachios. You can also drop by for a drink and some charcuterie during the afternoon.

  1. We both left work and started to head towards Brick Lane. As we got closer to the location I started to become slightly apprehensive. I was hit by curry houses and questionable graffiti (not the Banksy artistic kind)…oh and restaurant owners trying to lure you into their dodgy 3 courses for a tenner “special offer”. NO THANKS. As I was about to blurt out to her, “Is this a joke? Where the hell are you taking me?!” we suddenly stopped in front of a quaint French bistro. As we stepped inside it felt as though we had been transported to France itself. Full of character and charm, this venue would not have looked out of place in Notting Hill, but on Brick Lane?! Hidden amongst the rows of curry houses?! Who would have thought?! We were greeted by two eminently polite & sweet French women (Reims-born Nadia and Aurélie) who I’ve been informed own the place and live in the flat upstairs. Nadia and Aurélie have done a great job of putting their own idiosyncratic stamp on the décor. Colorful tiles, flowers, artwork representing France, birdcages and flowers are scattered throughout...

  2. Lost in the middle of Indian restaurants on Brick Lane, CHEZ ELLES Bistroquet, owned by two Frenchies: Nadia Brahim and Lili L'Hôte is a French bistro which serves traditional French cuisine in a warm and cosy atmosphere.When you enter in this bistro, the team is so welcoming, that you feel straight comfortable, like if you were in your house...
