Fodor's Review

French chef Bruno Loubet rules the roost at this slick hotel dining room and upscale bistro at the Zetter in historic-yet-cutting-edge Clerkenwell. Loubet tinkers and crafts away and creates so many must-try regional French dishes it's genuinely hard to choose: deliciously pink quail comes with prune, Roquefort, and sautéed wild mushrooms, while guinea fowl boudin blanc sausages sit perfectly with delicate leeks and chervil sauce, to name a couple of winners. You'll find fleshy sea bream with Pernod beurre blanc, yummy Mauricette snails and meatballs, and soothing hare royale, followed by tarragon poached pear, or classic crêpes Suzette (served with a touch of cardamom in a copper pan). The bustling ground-floor bistro is kitted with retro lamps, earthenware jars, coat hooks, and artifacts, and overlooks St. John's Square and the crenelated 14th-century St John's Gate.
