A surprise find in the heart of the city, this ultra-chic, modern bistro is already a favourite with business – the waiters are running! Cool and sophisticated in soothing greens, natural wood and mosaics, featuring a lounge with fireplace, private rooms, bar-deli seats and a zen-like courtyard, this is a beautiful space, though quite cold on this winter’s day. A lighter menu for quick meals (with house-baked bread), and short list of bistro options. Service charming. Quality of the chicken and parsnip soup is superb, fresh and flavourful, with chunks of bird; while the steak frites with bearnaise was accomplished – great bearnaise (rare find) and good steak, my only quibble being the not-crisp, although hand-cut fries. No time for dessert, more’s the pity, because they clearly pride themselves on their cakes etc. This place is a winner.
