French | Chelsea | Won't break the bank

Birkins and booze are a solid fixture at this Sloaney newbie, sister to the Wolseley and the newest addition to the ever-expanding Corbyn and King empire. Supposedly housed in the most tendered restaurant site in London history, Colbert delivers more in atmosphere than innovation, but who cares? Buzzing from breakfast to last orders, the French brasserie-style menu keeps it simple so expect steak tartare, moules meuniere and assorted ‘croques’. Desserts are worth saving room for (remember the pastry trolley at the Wolseley? We thought so), but most of the clientele save their calories for booze, and plenty of it. Nab an outside table in nice weather if you can. Blink and you’ll miss one; it’s a badly kept secret that this is the people watching spot in SW1.
