My Top 10 Restaurants in the Capital #4

First impressions count right? The entrance of Brasserie Zedel, London Photo: TripAdvisor

Who and Where?

If you’re looking for a French bistro, with excellent service and an authentic experience, then Brasserie Zedel is as good as it comes.
Located just off Regent Street, in the heart of the west end, this restaurant despite being in the basement, is a hive of activity any day of the week.

Now it can’t go without a mention, the restauranteurs behind this gaff are Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, the guys behind none other than the Wolseley and Delauney, so standards are high.

You’ve got to try l’escargots just once. They’re scrummy!


And for me, any French restaurant in town that serves snails as a starter gets a big tick, and this one does. Voila!

My theory is that with l’escargots on the menu, you know the restaurant is authentic, traditional, and a winner, if you’re looking for the real deal French meal in the capital.

The decor of Brasserie Zedel is spot on. With tiles decked throughout the entire venue, and large glass mirrors every angle you turn framed teamed with wooden panelling and soft lighting, yes you could be in France. Mais oui.

Now the bistros I know in Paris aren’t quite like this, but if in your minds eye you have an idea of how a French bistro should look and feel, then this is it.


Oh, and I should probably get onto the food, it doesn’t disappoint (sorry to foodies among you who see this so low on my list). Beautifully presented, super colourful and simply delicieux. And it doesn’t break the bank either.

No excuses, book a date and pay this place a visit, and if you’re in an insta fan take your camera too. Photo opportunities galore. You’re welcome!
