L'Escargot Restaurant Review: L'Escargot has been feeding Soho for generations---it was fashionable as long ago as the twenties. During the intervening years it has been through several different owners and several good and bad patches. At the moment the patch is good. There’s a large bustling restaurant on the ground floor with a French brasserie-style menu with private dining upstairs. The menu offers classics from smoked duck breast with pickled mushrooms and tian of crab and prawns with avocado as starters and mains that include roast partridge with choucroute, organic salmon and daube of beef. It’s all well cooked and comforting in its reliability. This is traditional, rather old-fashioned cooking, but none the worse for it. After all, L’Escargot is a Soho stalwart. Lunch and pre-theatre menu 2 courses £15, 3 courses £18.
