Squaremeal Review of NAC ?

Opened by three childhood friends with a love of food and drink, the North Audley Cantine (N.A.C) is a chilled-out and “stylistically stunning” Mayfair bistrot/cocktail lounge offering French sharing plates in a cool, clean-lined setting of whitewashed walls, brown leather banquettes and contemporary lighting, with gorgeous crockery and bread served in “stripy paper bags”. Graze your way through gussied-up classics served on mismatched willow-pattern plates – think tuna niçoise, ‘oeuf parfait’ with forest mushrooms, grissini-crusted veal escalope or seared scallops with roasted butternut squash. Cheese platters go down well with a glass or two of knowledgeably sourced wine, before you hit the sweet spot with profiteroles, madeleines or dark chocolate tart and hazelnut ice cream. Downstairs, the basement lounge/bar has been rebooted in retro-chic, Rive Gauche style and renamed Chez Chow in honour of the chef/patron’s diminutive dog.

Awful service

by   bronze reviewer (6)

Jul 2015

In a nutshell: - pros: tasty food (ordered the salmon), comfortable atmosphere and good desserts - cons: food was cold; they were out of the burgers and when we ordered the veal, they were out of the veal as well. Service was friendly but snail pace slow. will I come back, maybe.

Great if conversation isn't important!

The food was excellent, the service attentive, the ambiance engaging... and then as voices got louder during the eventing, so did the music, to the point that we couldn't hear each other on a table of four. The really disappointing element was being told that it wasn't possible to turn the music down - the manager clearly had difficulty hearing the feedback!

Despite the somewhat pretentious name, NAC (an acronym for North Audley Cantine; the last word making me think more of Shoreditch, and then cringing) is a very welcome addition to the north-west Mayfair dining scene. This is not a formal place along the lines of Fera, Maze, Helene Daroze and the like, but a beautifully created and very informal bistot. One can’t help feeling relaxed here, a perfect sort of place to come either for a lunch or just a coffee. The white-washed walls and retro furniture...

    First off NAC, love you long time but can we just talk about the cocktails? I ordered the Popcorn Sazerac and it tasted like popcorn, like vodka tastes like mashed potatoes. I was also so distracted by the word popcorn that I ordered it without reading the entire list of ingredients. For future reference, a ‘dash of absinthe’ is enough to have you at a nightclub 3 hours later describing the women as Instagram models and the men as Gollum.

    Anyway, I was surprised hadn’t heard of NAC – or North Audley Cantine- before my friend Michelle decided to have her birthday dinner there. They apparently have a speak...
