On a rainy afternoon, nothing quite beats a bistro. French onion soup, chic booths, great, soft lighting: this is where you want to tuck away and spend the day. Soutine, the latest London haunt from Corbin & King, is a classic French café and restaurant in St John’s Wood. Start with oysters, move on to Dover sole, and end with a cheese platter. With a casual restaurant with bar dining for 15 in the front, a more formal dining room in the back, and street seating à la a Parisian boulevard, this is an expansive neighbourhood gem.
