Casse-Croute near Bermondsey Square (London)

Just got back from a lovely work trip to London. Of all the food I ate, thought I'd at least share this gem of a place near Bermondsey Square (about 1/2 mile south of the Tower Bridge).

It's a very small French place at 109 Bermondsey Street (at the Corner of Bermondsey and Tanner). The menu seems to change daily and is comprised of only about 7 items total, written on the chalkboard in the center of the restaurant.

The staff and chef all seem to be French. The food was fantastic. I ordered a fresh baby green salad with pan-fried chicken hearts and a large crouton with liver pate. The vinaigrette was perfectly light and everything balanced well.

But the star was the rabbit with tarragon-mustard sauce and pureed potatoes. Without any doubt the best rabbit I've ever had. Somehow I need to figure out how to make that mustard sauce at home. I still dream about it.

For dessert I had an apricot crepe with apricot foam. Just lovely.

It's a great little neighborhood French restaurant with fantastic food. Definitely worth a try if you are in that part of London (about a 10 minute walk from London Bridge station; 2 minutes from the Bermondsey Square antique market).
