BISTRO BLEU; LONDON'S HIDDEN GEM


WORDS MAISIE JANE DANIELS - IMAGE COURTESY OF BISTRO BLEU





One of the things that I love most about London is how you can stumble upon a completely different atmosphere and enviroment all in the turn of a corner. And that's exactly what you can expect from entering Bistro Bleu through a Bloomsbuy Pub: The Rugby Tavern.


Just a short walk up the stairs inside this traditional lively British pub you enter into the elegant, art deco Bistro Bleu, which boasts beautifully intricite and chic art deco interiors. Take rich blue velvet banquettes, Parquet flooring, gilt-edged mirrors, and small brass stemmed bistro table lamps.


Run by Parisian born General Manager Reynald Tel and Head Chef Bernard Dumonteil from Lorraine in North Eastern France, the bistro brings West London a true taste of their home country’s finest, seasonal homely food, "combining flavour-fuelled Francophile magic with a slight British accent". 



The homestyle menu mirrors the interors; it's simple, elevated and inviting. I opted for the moreish provençal fish soup and the grilled swordfish steak with warm Niçoise salad and balsamic vinaigrette for mains, both of which hit the spot! I would reccomend the strawberry soufflé with strawberry and basil compote and strawberry sorbet for a light and luscious end.


If you're looking for a classique hidden gem where you don't have to travel far for a warm-welcomed pint afterwards, then Bistro Bleu is the place for you.
