The menu at Les Deux Salon, I suppose, is relatively authentic. Rillettes, terrines, frites, confits and tarts galore, as well as a well-gluggable vin de maison. This latter item is reasonable at £16.50; modest even, for central London. As for the rest of the a la carte menu, I found it overpriced. The starters average at about 8-9 pounds, the mains at 17 (not including sides) and are quite small. I know I’m considered greedy but, really…I’m a 9 stone something girl at the end of the day, hardly a challenging demographic to satiate. If you go for their pre-theatre menu the pricing is better, at £12.95 for two courses, but their standard menu, for me, is not worth it.
In summary, this probably is an authentic Parisian bistro, just a bit of an average one. I’d go back for lunch, or perhaps for pre-theatre. For an occasion dinner, no.
