Frenchie Covent Garden by Gregory Marchand is the newest outpost of the hugely popular Frenchie, Frenchie Wine Bar, Frenchie To Go and Frenchie Wine Shop hailing from the Rue du Nil in Paris’ 2nd arrondissement.
Having spent several long periods in the English capital cooking notably at the Savoy, Mandarin Oriental and Fifteen for Jamie Oliver, where the kitchen nickname ‘Frenchie’ originated, a return to London seemed inevitable.
The menu at Frenchie Covent Garden echo’s its Parisian counterpart with simple yet generous sharing dishes heavily influenced by Greg’s travels from London to New York through to Spain and Hong Kong. A 5‑course Carte Blanche menu is also available on request and, subject to availability, downstairs overlooking the action from the kitchen.
16 Henrietta St, Covent Garden WC2E 8QH.
