The award-winning L’Escargot Blanc celebrates French cuisine in all its glory, but it’s the relaxed atmosphere and the elegant yet unassuming décor – which includes vintage movie posters, bottles of French liqueurs and candlelit tables – that make it stand out among the West End’s eateries. Try the recently added ‘bar à vin’ if you want a glass of wine over a cheese board instead of a sit-down meal.
Top dish: The escargots, as you’d expect, are to die for.
