I’ll keep this one short and sweet. I really like Brasserie Zédel. It’s got a great central location, it’s huge (there’s almost always a table available) and the food is decent. Oh, and it’s well priced.

Blai and I visited one weekend and dined on their cheapest main course – the Steak Haché, Sauce au Poivre et Frites (£8.75). It was a good sized portion and makes for a nice change from the usual burger (which is essentially what a steak haché is but without the bread). A side of Epinards à la Crème (£3.23) was delicious and had us scraping the bowl clean.

Desserts were a brilliant Ile Flottante (£3.95) and a very good but slightly less brilliant Profiteroles au Chocolat Chaud (£5.00) (that needed its chocolate sauce to be hotter).

I returned again recently with friends one evening and was impressed with their confit de canard and their tarte Tatin. The food went down well with everyone – it was all very good and did I mention that it is all very well priced?

In addition to the brasserie itself, there’s a cafe on the ground floor and it’s a great place to stop off when shopping along Regent Street. Their cakes are excellent!
