French | Knightsbridge | Hit the jackpot

The fancy Frenchy in the basement of the Berkeley hotel is the latest offering from legendary chef Pierre Koffman. Pig’s trotter and pistachio soufflé provide Koffman afficionados with a true Tante Claire throwback, and the soufflé is still amongst the best desserts in London.There’s also plenty of classic cross-channel cuisine for the less adventurous. Impeccable service elevates the experience here, though a lack of natural light makes the place feel a little stuffy and the rumblings of the Picadilly line as it thunders from Hyde Park Corner to Knightsbridge can be distracting. Still, the food is faultless and the lunch menu and pre/post-theatre menus very reasonable.
