Review on Gazette Brasserie
As its name suggests, this neighbourhood brasserie close to the Thames takes newspapers as its theme, and it does a useful service by providing creditable French bourgeois food right through the day. Call in for a light breakfast, lunch or an afternoon pick-me-up; otherwise pull out all the stops in the evening.
'Plats du jour' such as sautéed frogs' legs with garlic and herb risotto or grilled sea bass with crushed purple potatoes bolster the 'menu principal', which might offer pan-fried foie gras with apple and chestnuts, calf's liver with red wine sauce and macaroni gratin or roast cod with caramelised parsnips and meat jus. Finish with pot au chocolat or apple tarte fine.
The 170-bin wine list homes in on the French regions, with plenty offered by the glass or carafe: pick from the list or walk into the cellar and select a bottle from the shelves. There are some cracking beers at the bar - including locally brewed Meantime organic, Battersea porter and tipples from northern France.
