Le Boudin Blanc | Mayfair Restaurant
Sometimes it can be nice to get out of London.
You might choose to spend a couple of days sucking up fresh country air, or zipping across to New York for a fat brunch, or pinging yourself through Le Tunnel on a mad romantic whim for the type of authentic Parisien dinner you could never find in London….
… unless you were at Le Boudin Blanc.
It’s fair to say that throwing around sentences like, “a London classic” or “the best French restaurant in London” is pretty risky, as there are a lot of contenders out there.
But this place is genuinely both.
It’s the real deal: a rustic and refined, old-school bistro in the heart of Mayfair that’s as French as a baguette and as authentic an experience of Paris you’ll find this side of the Channel – from the very French staff to the cute little tables perched on the street outside. Though obviously less expensive than an actual trip to Paris, an evening at Le Boudin Blanc doesn’t come cheap.
But then Jersey oysters; duck foie gras, whole grilled seabass; entrecôte and venison; tartelette au citron caramélisée and hot chocolate fondant; amazing wines and French cheeses like this genuinely shouldn’t do…because it’s all one big treat.
Sometimes it’s nice to get out of London without actually having to leave.
And Le Boudin Blanc’s the place to do it.
