Franquette is a French pop-up restaurant in East London.
The old-fashioned expression « à la bonne franquette » means a simple, informal and franc moment. Through these pop-up dinners, we want to share with you the experience of a family laid-back dinner in France. Franquette focuses on seasonal, local ingredients produced by small farmers and on natural wines.
We will make you travel within the different regions of France, starting with the most emblematic place of all : a Parisian bistrot. Be prepared to enjoy a menu of classic dishes twisted with Ollie’s British touch in a convivial atmosphere while Laura will pour some carefully selected French juices in your glass.
"Le Bistrot Parisien"
We invite you to an authentic and simple restaurant in the French capital to eat classic bistrot dishes. Imagine white paper tablecloth, generous plates and casseroles to share on the table, candles everywhere for a cosy atmosphere, the smell of the warm cuisine, the sound of the wine being poured and of your glasses cheering, the laughters among the french tunes, just like if you were invited to a parisian laid-back dinner with some friends.
We offer two menu options : the traditional french menu, and the vegan menu. They will both include appetizers, a starter, a main, a selection of cheese and a dessert.
Franquette offers a list of natural French wines by the glass or the bottle from Provisions (payment by card on site).
Let us know in advance if you have a specific diet and we will be happy to make something special for you. A welcome drink is included in both menus (wine or non-alcoholic drink), as well as a little treat to bring back home at the end of the dinner.
