SquareMeal Review of
Occupying the former site of Gallic favourite Morgan M, Assiette Anglaise continues the local tradition of serving up great French food in a friendly neighbourhood setting. Bringing the classic
bistro look bang up to date, the buzzy interior is decked out with pale grey walls, modern art and white-topped tables, although the menu is full of bourgeois evergreens – from crispy frog’s legs
with punchy tomato sauce to a generous bouillabaisse and exemplary créme caramel served with buttery almond biscuits. Elsewhere, a chunky textured rabbit and pistachio terrine delivers intense
rustic flavours, and international influences creep into a dish of tender soy-glazed slow-cooked pork belly, served with salt-and-vinegar cabbage and a side of crisp garlic and thyme fries. The
short all-French wine list from top supplier Les Caves de Pyrène is an added attraction, alongside classic cocktails and locally brewed beers.
