Cheap, classic French hits Hackney

From a man who studied under Alain "21 Michelin Stars" Ducasse, BF aims to turn you into a a Michelin Man yourself, with a combo of classically rich Franco-chow & thoroughly reasonable prices in its simple Hackney space.The gorging goes full-on traditional w/ bone marrow & toast, steak tartare w/ frites, coq au vin, duck confit, and a cheese raclette, w/ dippables like potatoes, ham, and bacon, which they naively label "to share". Hit desserts like creme caramel and red wine-poached pears, or if you prefer your vino straight up, the list's exclusively Gallic, with 25+ by-the-glass starting at just £3, enough of which may leave you pretty well-tyred.
