SquareMeal Review of Le Restaurant de Paul Tower 42

The smart French bakery and restaurant’s site on the ground floor of Tower 42 brings a splash of Paris to London’s financial district. Drop in from 6.30am to grab a proper croissant, a crunchy tartine and a decent coffee, or take a seat while they whizz up an energy-boosting fruit ‘n’ veg smoothie. Lunchtime onwards, more substantial food comes in the form of rotisserie chicken salads, gourmet burgers and côtelettes d'agneau (lamb chops) accompanied by something off their specialty wine list, with some French artisanal cheese to finish. Come evening, head to the wine bar for a cocktail or glass of champers.

Omoruyi O. 24 June 2016

Our travels have taken us to different regions and cities in France: Paris, Bordeaux, Saint-Malo, Calais, Monpellier. As our list continues to grow, so does our love for French cuisine. When we learned that PAUL, the famous French bakery and patisserie, had a restaurant in London's financial district, we went to find out if they could reproduce their legacy of fine taste in their restaurant menu at Le Restaurant de PAUL Tower 42. We were not disappointed. We highly recommend the Petite Assiette de Crudites de Printemps (soft carrots, beetroot, baby leek and broccoli) for starters with the Steak de Thon et sa Niciose de Printemps (tuna steak) for those seeking seafood with a difference. The staff were excellent and catered for our gluten and diary allergies with ease and a smile. The atmosphere is very much suited to the City lunch time crowd and may be slightly lacking in atmosphere for the more casual evening diner. Regardless, if you're after great French cuisine in the city without breaking the bank, we can't recommend this restaurant more highly. PAUL the bakery have done a great job in preserving their legacy of taste.
