THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bistrot Bruno Loubet Restaurant Review

: The gutsy French chef who ran Bistro Bruno then L’Odeon way back when, then went to Australia, has a completely new set of followers, as well as the loyal oldies. The Zetter is a chic, friendly hotel in Clerkenwell and now the final ingredient (excuse the pun) is in place with Bruno Loubet’s eponymous bistrot. Flavours are genuine and uncompromising, mostly with a French accent with other influences at work. Order nibbles --- perhaps pork crackling and green apple sauce --- then move on to the likes of creamed fennel soup with lovage pesto, ricotta and lemon crostini; wild boar ragoût with pasta; or guinea fowl boudin blanc with broad beans. Many of these are available as smaller or larger dishes; this is a customer-friendly menu and you are in charge. The wine list is more than fifty percent French; mark-ups are not greedy; the atmosphere buzzes. Loubet has also launched The Grain Store in King’s Cross, but he manages to oversee both kitchens with dexterity.
