Le Sacre Coeur Islington
Ive passed this bistro a couple of times on Theberton Street whilst trolling around the multitude of dining choices in Islington. On Friday night, a late train forced a late meal so we grabbed a table near the large opening windows and checked out the menu. The food was not was very traditional french classics such as snails, french onion soup with hearty meat and fish main courses. I had the entrecote diane whilst Rich had the lamb. Service was brisk and vaguely friendly, the food arrived worryingly quickly but it was actually very good. My entrecote was cut very thin but was cooked extremely well and the sauce wasnt too rich to overpower. Sides were green beans, roast potatoes and spinach, all very well cooked. Not much of a review I’m afraid, we came, we had a main course, we left. Not even a pud. When I got home I scoffed half a box of Leonidas truffles so I guess I’m not that much of a saint. Will have to return to the restaurant to give it a proper work out but it looks quite promising.
