I am always a bit suspicious of very popular inner-city "French" restaurants as there is bound to be mention of "fusion" and they are all too frequently exercises in form over substance. Not so here - modern, yes, but with the classic expression of simple but elegant French food. It was all good, but I especially loved the garlic notes in the cassoulet - it was a real winner for me - this is a simple dish that is frequently done very poorly - not here. The charcuterie plate was also fantastic - so many wonderful elements. Staff and service were fine although there is a hint of "I'm-too-sexy-for-my-cat" and self importance which makes the diner feel as though they are privileged to even be present at the venue - that said they were professional. This restaurant is certainly worth trying and deserves some of the hype.
