SquareMeal Review of Côte Highgate

There are Francophiles behind this nationwide French brasserie group – that much is obvious. Every last detail, from the rattan terrace furniture and patterned tile floors to the bentwood chairs and mirrored walls, has been borrowed from across the Channel. But Côte isn’t backward-looking; it’s a modern interpretation of a classic concept that’s designed to suit the British market. It also ticks off all the classics when it comes to food and wine: you can always find steak-frites, moules marinière and crème caramel here, as well as the bottles of Chinon, Picpoul and even Orangina you might want to quaff with them. ‘Plat rapides’ such as hachis parmentier or poulet grillée, plus fortnightly changing specials including duck confit are useful additions to the carte, as is the ‘formule’ breakfast of full English, juice and coffee. A solid high-street presence.

Most of my reviews cover higher-end restaurants than Cote. But that doesn't mean that we don't use the high street chains, and whilst we get our share of disappointments there are times when we come away pleased with what we've eaten and how much ( or little ) we've paid . Yesterday at lunch was one of those days. For the second time in three days we were in Highgate with a limited time for lunch. The restaurant was quiet when we got there at 12; busier when we left an hour or so later. We both voted for traditional dishes part of the 2 courses/£11.50 lunch deal. I had tuna rillettes with sourdough and coq au vin ; my wife Hachis Parmentier ( cottage pie, frankly) and an apple crumble, with a glass of wine each , bread and coffee. With the best will in the world our expectations on entering weren't high- it was a choice born of convenience not quality. Well yesterday we were wrong. All 4 courses were at least pleasant and the coq au vin was very good. OK the portions are not massive but they were enough to get us to supper without hunger pangs ; the place and the service were pleasant. Good bread; butter you could actually spread. Our bill was £45. Good food and good value. Good stuff Cote!
