SquareMeal Review of St James Bar

Said to be based on Coco Chanel's private salon at her Rue Cambon HQ, this bijou cocoon offers couture cocktails with a Gallic accent. Lounge on leather banquettes as belle époque staff dressed like characters from a Guy de Maupassant novel rustle up a ‘Dragon’s Son’ (Metaxa 12 Stars infused with Nuit d’Eté, Sauternes infused with Bulgare tea, Taylor’s 20, sugar syrup, Campari and homemade sloe gin mousse), a Pin ‘Oak’ 10 (Vida Mezcal infused with peppermint, Lapsang Souchong star anise, rhubarb liqueur, rhubarb bitters, lemon juice, orange juice, honey syrup and la Fée Absinthe) or a sour yet flowery ‘Enchanted Rose’. Also expect wines by the glass, beers, and some Franglais snacks – fried baby calamaris with wasabi tartare sauce, lobster thermidor croquettes and beef tartare, truffled egg yolk and beetroot crisps. Vive l'entente cordiale!
