Le Restaurant de Paul

Squaremeal Review of Le Restaurant de Paul ?

Paul's bakery and patisserie is a fixture of Covent Garden's foodie scene, but the upmarket French chain recently expanded its offer to include an all-day bistro. A bright conservatory-style space overlooks St Paul's churchyard, while the bijou dining room is decked out in classical style, with parquet floors, plush velvet chairs and reproduction 19th-century murals. Locals and tourists drop by for breakfasts of fresh pastries or eggs Benedict on toasted Campagne bread, though the menu also stretches to tartines, soupe à l'oignon, salade niçoise and well-sourced cheese and charcuterie platters to go with selections from the short, regional French wine list. Competent renditions of heartier Gallic fare include coq au vin, andouillette and rich confit duck with buttery crushed potatoes, although the real draw is ‘le table des desserts’ with its rows of glistening tartes, pretty pastel macarons and delicate mille-feuilles.

Le Restaurant de PAUL is situated behind the Paul Covent Garden shop, and its a bustling but cute space full of chatter and hungry shoppers and tourists...

    Eating Covent Garden :: Eating Covent Garden A heavenly piece of France at PAUL in Covent Garden

    Tonight I’m back in Covent Garden trying out a brand new bistro. I seem to keep discovering romantic stories of family businesses that have been going forever. PAUL is another one of them.

    The company was started in 1889 when Charlemagne Mayot and his wife opened a small bakery in Croix near Lille. It was his granddaughter Suzanne and her husband who carried on the business by taking over a famous bakery-patisserie in Lille belonging to the Paul family. They decided to keep the name. PAUL patisseries are now in 29 countries around the world and 125 years later, what has now become something of an empire,...
