The classic French bistro from NYC. Certainly felt a bit different from NYC location (perhaps a bit more refined). Dare i say it -- the quality of Eggs Benedict was better in this London location!?

Balthazar, 4-6 Russell Street, is in Covent Garden. We went here when our reservation nearby cancelled because of an electrical fire in the area. This is almost an exact replica of the New York brasserie, and as a result, good brasserie style menu with good wine and other alcohol options. Not exactly what I wanted when in London, but pre-theatre, we did not have time to shop around.

Always packed, never snooty. They welcome walk ins, have a great kids menu and raw bar, and make a good cocktail. And if you're missing New York, it'll make you feel like you're back on Spring St.

I went to Balthazar years ago in New York and really like it, and I was happy to find in in London right at the heart of Covent Garden. You get that French Bistro feel as soon as you walk into the restaurant. They have a lovely display of fresh seafood: lobsters, crabs, shrimps and, of course, oysters.

The menu here is big and quite French, so if you are in the mood for steak tartare, escargots, duck and steak and frites, you have come to the right place. Since the restaurant is in London, you can also have some British flair, like a duck shepherd's pie. We must not forget the daily specials. The evening we went was a Sunday, so I went for the ox cheek bourguignon, because the server highly recommended it to me. It was adequate but not great. The sauce was way too heavy and instead of the flavor Burgundy wine, I just tasted salt. However, the meat was well cooked. I think next time I will not ask for the waiter's recommendation and just stick with steak and frites.
