Fodor's Expert Review The French House
Black-and-white photos of legendary The French House regulars like artists Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud beam down at this disarmingly charming old-school Soho hangout. Set on the first floor of the famous pub of the same name and run by a former cabaret artist, you can sip Ricard pastis or bargains from the all-French wine list before embracing superb French classics like salt cod beignets, calves brain with brown butter, or slow-braised navarin of lamb with aligot mash (cheese-blended potatoes).
