Bistro by Shot Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Bistrò by Shot restaurant in Parsons Green:

1) Bistrò by Shot is new to the restaurant scene, but, despite this, on entering through its inconspicuous doorway (a mere minute from the underground station) you’re likely to feel the sensation that you've been there before.

2) The restaurant is like every other neighbourhood bistro you've visited: a mix of picnic-style benches and chairs made from salvaged timbers; blackboards with daily specials; low-hanging coach lanterns; Christmas-coloured, translucent water glasses; and a delicatessen with homemade cakes and pastries; not a white tablecloth in sight. You get the idea.

3) But it somehow manages to bridge the very tricky divide between commonplace and special.

4) And special it is; the phrase “it's all in the detail” comes to mind.

5) The bread is homemade. That familiar blackboard displays less familiar fare. There are guest wines like a delightful, oak-barrelled chardonnay (a touch appreciated by wine buff friends). The restaurant caters to all your needs from dawn until quite-a-bit-later-than dusk – create your own juices at breakfast, boozy weekend brunches, cheap 2- or 3-course lunches, and a seasonal, monthly-changing dinner menu.

6) And so to the French-Italian dinner menu, which is short - a sign that the bistro wants to do few things but do them all very well.

7) A selection of meats and cheeses kick things off, with top quality ingredients featuring as mains. Venison is perfectly pink, the sweet, sticky black treacle perfectly balancing the richness of the meat. The duck breast with polenta croquettes, broccoli purée and honey sauce has a crisp skin but the flesh is still tender.

8) A common theme on the menu is the use of oranges. It’s in the pearl barley salad; accompanying the duck; in the tuile dessert. Potentially a Marmite situation, you could love it or hate it.

9) Make a booking for the one alfresco table. The secluded table, which would seat 4-6, is positioned in the back of the bistro, and, with its twinkling fairy lights, is the embodiment of whimsical – there's even a retractable roof when the British weather misbehaves.

10) So when you're in Parsons Green, walk past Côte and opt for something a little more special.
