Square Meal Review of Franco's ?

For more than 60 years, Franco's has earned its keep as an accommodating all-day local for Jermyn's Street's fastidious shoppers and wealthy grandees. Breakfast at one of the pavement tables is a favourite summertime repast, but the place really makes its mark during lunch and dinner. Veal always comes highly recommended (perhaps vitello tonnato or a pan-fried chop with sautéed artichokes, new potatoes and sweetbreads), and it's also worth investigating the pastas – black tagliolini with crab and courgettes, for example. There's a respectable choice of salads and grills, too, while desserts offer anything from zuppa inglese to mango cheesecake. Franco's wine list is a treasure trove of SuperTuscans, Sassicaias and delectable rosés bolstered by some international heavyweights. Prices are ‘steep', although set lunches and theatre menus offer some compensation, and there are ‘bonus points for staff who actually speak English'.

Wine List Of The Year

Franco’s made it to the shortlist entirely on the strength of a fine Italian selection. There is an ‘International Wines’ section (including such makeweight countries as France!) and a truly impressive spread of 24 rosés, but this list is really all about Italy, particularly given that there are 14 vintages of Sassicaia and Tignanello.
