Named after the nickname bestowed upon chef Grégory Marchand by Jamie Oliver, Frenchie brings Gallic flair to Covent Garden.
Frenchman Marchand, who worked with Oliver at Fifteen and runs the hugely successful eatery of the same name in Paris, has returned to his adopted second home. He brings with him a menu that draws on influences from his time working in London as well as New York, Spain and Hong Kong – expect beautifully presented plates with creative flavour combinations.
If you can’t get a table, book at the bar, where you’ll be able to see the seasonal cocktails being crafted. And, being of French origin, it will come as no surprise there’s also a fine wine list on offer.

The food, ambiance, and service here are all excellent. It's just a tad bit expensive for the portion sizes, but all in all, a fantastic restaurant and I'd come back here again. I want to come back and try the lunch menu which is more affordable than the dinner. I'd give this 4 to 4.5 stars - the quality of the food, ingredients, and plating is all wonderful, and it's a great place but it's... more
Came here for brunch, and it was every bit as good as the dinner.
We the bacon scones, the gazpacho, the sea bream carpaccio, the crab tagliolini, and the lobster roll. These were all incredible -- if I have any regrets, it's that we didn't order more. (We were stuffed at the end, and heading to the airport straight after, otherwise we probably would have.)
There are some places where it... more
Came here before going to see Kinky Boots at the theatre nearby. The food was good, not very big portions, the menu seemed a bit hoity-toity but I think that's what kind of modern-type vibe they are aiming for. If they had some more options or the menu was available online beforehand, and lowered their price to match the portions a little better, I would definitely be back! Friendly hosts and... more
