Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

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 away and masters so many must-try regional French dishes it's genuinely hard to choose: deliciously pink quail comes with prune, Roquefort cheese, and sautéed wild mushrooms, while guinea fowl boudin blanc sausages sit perfectly with delicate leeks and chervil sauce, to name just two 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 Mauviel shiny copper pan). The bustling ground-floor bistro is kitted with retro anglepoise lamps, earthenware jars, coat hooks, and wooden artifacts, and overlooks St. John's Square and the crenelated 14th-century St. John's Gate.
