After the success of Café Gourmand, their petit bistro in Lexington Street Soho, Jean-François & Tanzi started their next chapter with Patron Restaurant in March 2015. In November 2018, they fully embraced the opening of Tabac Bar. The French and English couple met in 2006 in a cooking school at the heart of London and embarked on this gastronomic journey along with their little bilingual Terrier, Pippin.

What was your first impression about Patron Cave à Manger?
I have seen a good ambience and the spirit I was looking for - family and friends working together.
How do you feel about your beginnings in the kitchen?
I was impressed to see a really young head chef with a lot of passion and I really appreciated his faith in me. It is a great opportunity for me to learn.
What do you think about London?
At the beginning I felt really small in this big city but now I really like it, especially how it is international and full of very polite people with open minds.
FIRST OF ALL WE WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE WHO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED DRY JANUARY!
Congratulations to all of you who made it through... and all of you who tried!
