You know, I've never been to Keith McNally's original Balthazar in New York's Spring Street, but my friends tell me it's loved by everybody in the neighbourhood. So, naturally, I was pretty excited about the bistro's arrival in London's Covent Garden. We went along for supper on Monday and I loved the place. Somehow warmer than Brasserie Zedel in nearby Piccadilly, walking into Balthazar felt like greeting an old friend. They serve up delicious brasserie-inspired food you can rely on. I had a kir royale and oysters and steak frites and very good it all was too.
