Review on Gazette Brasserie Putney
The Gazette Putney is the third instalment from Pascal Even and Walter Lecocq, who have already established branches in Battersea and Balham. Located just round the corner from Putney Station, this welcome neighbourhood brasserie serves authentic French dishes throughout the day in a relaxed and welcoming ambience. The décor takes inspiration from local French cafés with simple wooden tables and chairs, as well as Welsh slate tables with chalk for drawing and a scrabble table to keep diners entertained.
Menus change weekly to reflect the very best of seasonal produce with dishes like les escargots, snails with garlic butter and aromatic juice or foie gras chaud, pan fried foie gras with apple lime and chestnuts. Moving on there's canard, roasted duck breast, new season kumquats and pumpkin gratin or cabillaud, roast cod, potato risotto and basil oil. Desserts stay close to home with crème brûlée or la tarte fine, thin apple tart cooked upside down and served with vanilla ice cream.
French varietals dominate the wine list, with plenty offered by the glass or carafe, as well as an excellent selection of beers, French ciders and tasty cocktails.
