A proper French restaurant with real atmosphere. A large French party were dining at the same time as me. The jambon de Bayonne, snails and rack of lamb that I chose were all delicious.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
