Related to The Forge on Garrick Street, this smooth-running European brasserie goes about its business conveniently close to Covent Garden tube. The bijou dining room is smart & unfussy, with reassuringly efficient service that soon puts everyone at ease, while the straightforward menu offers plenty of choice beyond the French dishes that the restaurant’s name might lead you to expect. Start with a punchily fresh tomato tartare & asparagus or crispy pork, watercress & prawn salad with plum sauce, followed by generous grilled halibut with hollandaise or tender ostrich fillet with mushroom duxelle & an unctuous port reduction. Classic desserts such as chocolate fondant are up to scratch, & the French-biased wine list offers a decent choice by the glass & half-bottle. Also note the set menu (£14.50/16.50 for two/three courses).
