Spotlight: Frenchie @ Home

June 23, 2020

Gregory Marchand has reopened the doors of his Covent Garden restaurant for takeaway and delivery

Tell me more

Head to the newly pedestrianised Henrietta Street where Frenchie is based and you can now pick up treats to takeaway, including classic sandwich baguettes and brioche buns such as the chicken Caesar filled with rotisserie chicken, parmesan, lettuce and anchovies; as well as salads including quinoa, pickled radish, peas, feta and raspberry. Frenchie’s cookies and strawberry panna cotta are also available, as are its signature bacon or goats cheese scones.

When can I go?

The restaurant is open for take away Wednesday to Sunday from 12-7pm.

Great. And you mentioned something about delivery…

We did indeed. After the success of delivery service in Paris, where the Frenchie concept was born, Frenchie @ Home has come to London, with the team delivering three-course meals with nibbles created by Marchand. Dished include parmesan gougères; smoked ricotta, strawberry, pea, chive mayonnaise salad; brioche and herb stuffed chicken with asparagus, Jersey Royals, broad beans and Datterini tomatoes; pistachio and raspberry frangipane tart, raspberry sauce with meringue; as well as the restaurant’s peerless brown butter madeleines. Bottles of wine from Frenchie’s cellar are also available starting at £27.

Do I reheat them a home?

Not completely. Bespoke origami-like boxes that unfold into plates have been designed by  French company Tiptoque so that the dishes can be eaten as they come. You will have to fire up the oven though as the main course and gougères are designed to be reheated.

What else do I need to know?

Frenchie @ Home is available Wednesday to Sunday with delivery between 5.30-8.30pm. It’s priced at £45 per person with an additional £14 delivery fee (or you can collect directly from the restaurant). Orders must be made before 6pm the previous day. Order at: www.frenchiecoventgarden.com
