Squaremeal Review of Le Bar ?

Lovers of all things Gallic should swing by Club Gascon's ‘annex' , a sophisticated cocktail bar offering French small plates. The menu is proudly regionalist, with a great line in charcuterie, artisan cheese and all manner of ‘piggy' and ‘ducky' delights: pick from snacks of pig’s trotter cake and truffled cheese baguette, or go for heartier options, such as oyster, mushroom and black pudding salad, or foie gras with mussels. The ‘express lunch’ menu remains a steal for a dish of the day, plus a starter, glass of wine and pudding such as baked brandy custard. Other deals, including monthly wine dinners and oyster evenings, are also well worth considering. “Great for date nights”, says a fan.

    Despite getting slightly confused by the layout of West Smithfield (as usual) I had a really lovely evening in Cellar Gascon a few nights ago, and must recommend it to anyone in the area looking for a sophisticated tipple and Michelin quality snacks.

    Cellar Gascon is the wine-bar little-brother of Club Gascon, Pascal Aussingnac’s Michelin-starred SW-French restaurant next door. They have their fingers in various pies, having recently launched pop-up Duck’n’Roll (a fabulous addition to Street Feast) and also running Comptoir Gascon, Cigalon and Baranis...

Pascal Aussignac

Schooled in classical French cuisine chez Alain Dutournier and Guy Savoy, Pascal Aussignac has made his name in London with the food of his native Gascony. His highly original flagship Club Gascon opened in 1998, and its casual siblings Comptoir Gascon and Le Bar have a loyal following too. In 2010, Aussignac launched Provençal restaurant Cigalon and adjoining Baranis. The chef’s artistic talents also extend to floristry: he does all the flowers at his restaurants.
