Square Meal Review of Mon Plaisir ?

Since opening in the 1940s, this jaunty theatreland bistro has found favour with famous figures from General de Gaulle to legendary thespians, and the curios adorning its sprawling dining room are fond reminders of its true Gallic heart. On the menu, hearty nostalgic dishes and cross-Channel favourites such as rib-sticking coq au vin or blush-pink entrecôte with matchstick fries sit alongside holiday classics including pissaladière with olive tapenade or garlicky snails doused in parsley butter – all complemented by patriotic French wines. To conclude, the ripe cheeseboard is a whiffy wonder to behold, while desserts feature the spectacular Paris-Londres – a gut-busting tangle of sugar-dusted choux pastry, praline cream and spun caramel. Warm, hospitable staff bolster the entente cordiale, while pre/post-theatre crowds generate a lively buzz. ‘You’ll never stop going back’, affirms one fan.

    ytTastes :: Espresso Martini… Mon Plaisir

    Catching up with a good friend… but trying to find a less crowded bar with the Christmas Shopping crowds in London, we ended up at Covent Garden Hotel Bar for my favourite cocktail… the Espresso Martini. If you know me, I really don’t drink much alcohol; I taste a lot but drink little. Exception to the rule is the espresso martini and the Covent Garden Hotel Bar in Monmouth Street does a rather nice one. Unfortunately my eagerness led to a lack of actual image of my drink but I am sure you will get a good idea with this one. We had a highly skilled bartender who seemed to have hit it well with my friend who is extremely particular about his dry martini. So we were still happily catching up, observing the other clientèle, and discussing the ever so favourite topic of food and wine after several cocktails later. I definitely do recommend this bar...
