Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

From its pine-clad walls and skis used as interior decoration to a basket of baguettes warming on a log-burning stove (yes, really) – the only place more French than Le Chalet Beaumartin might just be France itself. A sister venue to Bistro Beaumartin, a bigger premises in the city centre, this West End sibling is a cosy, intimate space made homely with French memorabilia and a buzzy vibe. Menus are small and without set starters or main courses – instead, dishes come out as they are ready from the restaurant’s minuscule kitchen. A cold green bean, potato and ham salad is a good partner to posh cheese and cured ham on toast, otherwise known as tartine. The three-cheese fondue, featuring Emmental, Comte and Gruyère Suisse, plus a good glug of wine, happily feeds two with an enormous bag of bread, while a chocolate fondue with fresh fruit gives more molten enjoyment at the end of the meal. Don’t forget to bring you own booze, and maybe a sled on which to be pulled home after all that rich food.
