Described as an unlikely outpost of fine French food, Bouchon Fourchette sits between Mare Street stalwarts The Dolphin and Tre Viet and is the lovechild of Jeremy Huguet. Opening in March, I've only just got round to checking it out - shameful seeing as it's less than a ten minute walk from my house.
Bistrotheque down the road do a mean one too) and the chips were perfectly seasoned and served in a brown paper bag.
We shared a bottle of the merlot and passed on the desserts (far too full!). Service was attentive but not intrusive, food was served on lovely wooden boards and the restaurant itself was staunchly bistro. Simple, classic French food done well (I was very tempted by the baked camembert to share), the prices here are ridiculously good (see above) and I'm definitely planning to return with friends. Bouchon Fourchette gets four out of five (because of the Monday vibe meant things were a little quiet!)
