- If steak-frites and scenery are your pleasure, the Covent Garden branch of fine, straightforward French fare boasts an enchanting perch atop the old Central Market building. With an absorbing aspect over the Piazza, take in the mime artists, milling tourists and music makers below, with a glass of wine in hand and the aromatic promise of traditional French hors d'oeuvres, like grilled queen scallops with garlic and herb butter, followed by succulent grillades such as paillarde de veau and Onglet. Vegetarians are not so well catered for. Daylight floods in through the airy conservatory, and the spacious outdoor terrace is complimented by box hedges and heating lamps for when the nights draw in. Clientele often consists of local office workers dropping by for a reliably good dinner and a chance to watch the world go by.
