SquareMeal Review of Petit Pois Bistro

Located above its basement sibling Happiness Forgets (one of London’s best bars), this sweet French bistro overlooks Hoxton Square. Come here to pretend you’re in a leafy Parisian square: either inside amid bare-brick walls and wooden flooring, or outside on the patio. Hipsters give the place a fun buzz, sipping on-point drinks (cocktails, a well-edited wine list, some choice spirits). A concise menu of French-leaning dishes – French onion soup, sole meunière – is offered for lunch and dinner, while snacks such as oysters or croque monsieur are available throughout the day. Our well-balanced starter of beetroot, Bleu d’Auvergne, walnuts and horseradish arrives delicately assembled on toast. To follow, tender duck confit is offset by sweet-onion purée and creamy gratin dauphinois – if you’re having a bad day, this dish will set everything right. For dessert, chocolate mousse is spooned from a big bowl by the waiter. Like its vegetable namesake, Petit Pois is small yet well-rounded: a great addition to the area.
