Square Meal Review of Racine ?

Few London restaurants deliver the bonhomie of a genuine Parisian bistro with the passion and panache of Racine – and even fewer have been doing it to great acclaim for more than a decade. Tiny tables packed cheek-by-jowl, wicker baskets loaded with sliced baguette, a menu stuffed with bourgeois classics, a regional wine list stretching across France – it's all seriously authentic stuff. Chef/patron Henry Harris never compromises on flavour or ingredients, and shows his affection for Gallic cuisine with ever-popular specialities such as calf's brains in brown butter with capers or grilled rabbit leg with mustard sauce and green beans. Elsewhere, steak tartare and wobbly crème caramel are several cuts above your bistro average. A bargain set menu keeps demand high, with only the occasionally brusque waiter and a whopping 14.5 per cent service charge letting the side down.
