In a nutshell: Snails, confit canard, steak frites and more typical French delights in south London.

Summing it all up: La Bonne Bouffe is bringing an all-French menu and dining experience to East Dulwich, with a range of treats we usually expect on the continent.

Way down south, in leafy East Dulwich, a new traditional French restaurant and bar is about to appear.

La Bonne Bouffe, which translates literally as ‘good grub’, will serve properly authentic French food - even their menu is entirely en Francais - alongside classic cocktails and a wine list with bottles naturally imported from France.

Some of the dishes on the menu include: There’s a cheese plate to finish and the whole hog of French desserts if you want something sweet, from a variety of tartes at £5.50 to the gloriously fluffy meringue dish Oeuf a la Neige - or literally translated, egg on the snow - for £5.50.

London does classic French food really well, so, crack out your best Breton striped top and raise a glass to our cross-channel contemporaries with some spectacular Bresse chicken, ridiculously rich chocolate mousse, and more croque monsieur and charcuterie than you can shake a stick at.

Open all day, Comptoir is available for your Benedicts and viennoiserie needs before moving onto the menu proper, where you can enjoy a croque monsieur, tart of the day, steak tartare and duck confit – plus some brilliant cheese.

Over in Belgravia, you’ll find La Poule au Pot, a rustic, romantic French restaurant that has stood on the same spot for almost sixty years.

This restaurant, dining room and wine bar in the twinkly basement of Shoreditch’s Boundary Hotel is host to chef Stéphane Reynaud (he’s kind of a big deal across the Channel) and his recently launched restaurant, Tratra.

The menu of twists on French favourites (ham and cheese croque brioche, Frenchy mac, cheese and ham, braised octopus with olives, tomatoes and capers) will deliver before you even get onto the accomplished wine list.

Review analysis

Dinner for two: about £90 (three courses with wine and service) Students of independent British cinema will no doubt recall the ill-starred French bistro set up by ­Timothy Spall in Mike Leigh’s Life Is Sweet, the Regret Rien.

­Offering such delicacies as King Prawn in a Jam Sauce and Pork Cyst, the restaurant stayed open for just one evening, during which Spall’s character Aubrey hit the vin ­ordinaire perhaps a little too hard, before dissolving into a hot, blubbery mess of tearful lechery.

If I told you that Heston Blumenthal’s next restaurant would offer a series of radical ­reinventions of Anglo-French retro ­classics ­including Saveloy on a Bed of ­Lychees, you’d be agog to hear more.

There’s something ever so slightly Mike Leigh-esque – a sort of shambolic, improvised quality, maybe – about East Dulwich in south London.

From the online bulletin boards of the East Dulwich Forum (a Paradiso of unintentional comedy, a Pillow Book of misplaced amour propre, a Sun Tzu’s Art of War of advanced passive-aggressive techniques), it’s clear that long-term residents view the incoming tide of artisan bakeries and dog-grooming salons ambivalently: much has been gained, yet something, somehow, has been lost.
