I would like to recommend South Restaurant, 
128 Curtain Rd, London EC2A
3AQ, tel 020 7729 4452.

South is a light and airy restaurant serving simple southern French food. The menu changes fairly frequently whilst keeping some seasonal favourites.

We splashed out and had the pan fried foie gras with puy lentils and Jurancon sauce, a good choice. It was the best foie gras I have ever eaten.

Our other starter was a pear, walnut and roquefort salad with a light creamy dressing, which was also delicious. I followed this with pan fried Scallops with crushed charlottes potatoes and a coriander seed butter - yum-
succulent scallops and the sauce was lovely. 

My husband had the Confit de Canard, a perfectly confited duck leg with creamy mashed potato and a dark dark red beetroot sauce, also fantastic. We were quite full but were very tempted by the selection of desserts displayed on the bar, however we
plumped for some homemade ice cream instead which was also very good. 

The wine list is very regional we had a bottle of red Pic Saint Loup as recommended by our waitress which went very well with our menu choices and was reasonably priced. The kitchen is open plan so you can watch the chefs working away. The service was excellent, informed and friendly, and added to our evening being so lovely. I would highly recommend South as a great place to go for decent portions of high quality food and wine.

Thank you
