Le Petit Citron

OPENED 35 DAYS AGO

French bistro Le Petit Citron arrives in the heart of Hammersmith.

Le Petit Citron is a picturesque bistro restaurant that has opened within Brook Green, allowing Londoners to reminisce about times spent in France and the simpler things in life, all while holding a glass of fine wine, of course.

Le Petit Citron - food and wine

The Spot:

Think of a chic Parisian interior, complete exposed tile walls and pale green colours for a vintage touch. The soft lighting makes it great place for date night, while the simple décor and casual ambiance is welcoming enough for family get-togethers as well.

The Food:

With a passion for Provençal cooking, husband-and-wife owners Lawrence and Emily Hartley aim to bring simple yet comforting home recipes to Le Petit Citron. Naturally, garlic features throughout their dishes, including a daily-changing soup with garlic croutons, Bourride (fish stew with aioli), and onglet steak frites with a pastis, garlic and herb butter. For those unfamiliar with dishes from the region, pastis is a refreshing aperitif served best with olives and anchovies (and sun). Alternatively, try the lemon and garlic poussin (baby chicken) with French beans for something just as refreshing.

Le Petit Citron-dish

The menu is complemented by weekend brunch, ranging from classic scrambled eggs with smoked salmon to more modern offerings. Good luck with choosing between the waffles, topped with either blackberry compote and ice cream, or bacon and maple syrup…

The Drinks:

Besides a concise selection of wines from family-owned vineyards, Le Petit Citron offers a range of aperitifs to set the tone for the evening. Think gin and tonic elevated with cassis and lavender, Lillet and elderflower martini, and Muscat Spritz.

Le Petit Citron-dessert

The Damage:

Starters are priced at £6-£9; entrées range from £12 to £18.

In a Nutshell:

For a slice of Provençal comfort-cooking amongst an unfussy, serene setting in West London, Le Petit Citron joins London’s burgeoning French bistro scene.
