Fodor's Expert Review Brasserie Gustave

$$$ Knightsbridge French

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

Sleek French expats and inveterate Francophiles adore the triumphant procession of traditional Larousse-style classics found at this art deco–inspired South Kensington favorite. Six buttered escargots à la Bourguignonnes come slathered in garlic and parsley sauce topped with a puff pastry snail, while deep green wild hedgerow garlic soup is adorned with crunchy frogs' legs. Try timeless treats like Barbary duck à l'orange, veal kidneys with three-mustard sauce, or achingly bleu beef tournedos Rossini with foie gras, truffles, and Madeira jus. For dessert, watch the mâitre d' theatrically flambé Cointreau and Cognac-rich crêpes Suzette at his trusty roving tableside stove.
