Review on Les Associés
Opened in Crouch End in 1989, Les Associés remains a bastion of old-school French food and this restaurant isn't about to change course or be swayed by fashion. It emanates a quiet, cosy and delightfully friendly atmosphere, making guests feel right at home in comfortable, homely surroundings.
The kitchen follows the basic tenets of good French provincial cooking, which means putting the emphasis on carefully sourced seasonal ingredients, keeping things simple and getting the little details right. Menus change every few weeks and there are always specials (notably fish) to back up the regular repertoire.
To start, there might be Breton fish soup topped with puff pastry or duck salad with grapefruit, before main courses of beef fillet with chanterelles and red wine sauce, pork fillet with black plums or a fish of the day served with a parcel of duck liver. Desserts inhabit the classic world of 'tarte aux pommes', 'poire belle Helène' and nougat glacé', while the compact wine list offers a quick, affordable tour through some of the top vineyards in France.
