Review on Truc Vert
Named after the owner's favourite beach on the southwest coast of France, Truc Vert is an admirable, easy-going fusion of cafe, deli and restaurant - it brings a splash of 'la vie rustique' to the streets of Mayfair thanks to its chunky farmhouse decor, white-topped wooden tables and an inviting choice of earthy food with strong French and Mediterranean overtones.
The place opens right through the day, from casual breakfast to full-blown suppers. Menus change every session, but the kitchen sends out an array of splendid stuff including grilled Toulouse sausage with mash, spinach and onion jus, warm confit of duck and seared cod with pea and saffron risotto.
You can also choose from the shop counter if you fancy quiches, salads (smoked chicken with broccoli and roast mushroom) or a plate of cheese or charcuterie (pick your own selection and pay according to how much the whole lot weighs). For those with a sweet tooth, there are homemade cakes (walnut and apple) plus ice creams, sorbets and desserts such as pannacotta with poached figs.
