LONDON | Frenchie is the Covent Garden outpost of the popular Parisian restaurant of the same name, with owner Gregory Marchand, who has worked in some of the top kitchens around the world, taking all of these influences to create some very tasty and inspiring food. This isn’t your typical French bistro and the food being served at Frenchie is like being taken on a journey around the world. The space is modern with lots of white, tiles, exposed brick and metal. It comes together for that sleek industrial yet welcoming look that’s all very now. Upstairs is a bit more polished, while the downstairs has a more causal vibe.

Staff are attentive but never overbearing, and know the menu intimately. When it comes to ordering, it’s all about share plates, and share you’ll want to do as basically everything on the menu, which uses seasonal British ingredients, sounds enticing. Think pressed duck foie gras with smoked eel, beets and grated frozen horseradish, or ricotta tortelli with Lapsang Souchong and lemon caviar. Marchand’s global influences aren’t just apparent between dishes, but often within individual dishes themselves. There’s a bit of theatre in the presentation too. The ricotta for example comes to the table on its own, then the smoky Lapsang Souchong is poured over to finish the dish.

The drinks menu is fantastic too. The wine list focuses on small, artisinal producers while the cocktails are tasty and quality.

Much has been said about the price of the food here and we’re not going to lie – it’s not cheap. Dishes are on the small side and once you’ve ordered a few along with a drinks, the cost stacks up and a bill that’s not far off £70 once you include service isn’t uncommon. There’s no denying that the food is fantastic and innovative, and if you go for the set lunch or order strategically, you can keep the price down.
