U.S.–based French superchef Daniel Boulud combines the best of French high-end brasserie fare with a winning dash of superior Yankee gourmet burgers and fries, at this popular street-level, all-day hangout at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge. Lilliputian-sized platters of the most delicate Gilles Verot charcuterie, heartier coq au vin, or white pork sausages with truffle mash compete with palm-sized Yankee, Frenchie, Piggie, or signature "BB" foie gras–beef
burgers and fries in black onion or sesame seed buns. The knock-out grazing menu has something for everyone, and professional but informal waitstaff make for a convivial vibe in this handy spot opposite Harvey Nichols department store. Note the £24 three-course lunch or 5–7 pm prix fixe deals.
