SquareMeal Review of
Part of the wave of new openings that's suddenly made Tooting's Broadway Market a real destination for food and drink, Bordelaise has proper local pedigree as it’s owned by the team behind award-wining Little Bar and Little Taperia. The USP here is steak-frites. Very good value steak-frites. Choose from a £10 butler's (also known as flat iron or feather blade) or £20 rib-eye, both sourced from Clapham butcher M Moen & Sons. Cooked perfectly to order and served with piping hot, salty, beef-dripping fries for simple satisfaction guaranteed. Textbook béarnaise and the signature red wine bordelaise sauce are also on offer, along with a short selection of sides, including truffled macaroni cheese. Drinks have a French accent, from Ricard and Calvados to reds from the Rhône and Bordeaux, and so too do the chalked-up daily selection of starters, puds and cheese. Bordelaise – nous t'aimons.
