Belle epoque decor and a menu full of French classics make this a Francophile’s dream come true at Brasserie Prince by Alain Roux.
Alain Roux’s influence is evident, especially in his grandpa’s country pate which was a rustic treat, along with the freshest Lindisfarne oysters.
Remaining true to Prince’s roots we followed up with a glorious chunky cut steak tartare and rack of lamb, served pink with a herb crust.
Plum tart and rum baba rounded off a great meal. It’s not cheap, but it is good and the staff are excellent. Vive le Prince.
