Le Bar Restaurant Review

: Club Gascon's wine bar Cellar Gascon has been renamed Le Bar. This small, intimate annex offers an impeccable wine list and very good cooking. Choose from a menu of French-inspired small plates that might include barbecued pork ribs, foie gras Gascon, escargots and duck doughnuts with spicy sauce. There's a nice choice of charcuterie, cheeses and desserts. Or go for the value lunch menu: £8.50 gives you the dish of the day, plus £2 for a glass of wine and £3 for a starter.
