Frenchie to Go (FTG) closed in the middle of 2023 with Gregory Marchand’s announcement that the space would be renovated to host a new Italian restaurant project called L’Altro.

FTG was an Anglo-inspired eatery from Gregory Marchand (Frenchie) that featured excellent Reubens, flavorful fish and chips, sweet treats like cheesecake and doughnuts, and a great beer list. There’s a small space for dining on site, in addition to takeaway.



Alexander Lobrano (2015) “What’s great about this place is that it hits a near bull’s eye in terms of catering to a certain atavistic roster of Anglo-American comfort food dishes created by someone who profoundly understands how they’re built in terms of layering tastes and respecting texture that aren’t easy to find in Paris.”

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2014) “In the not-too-distant future, when Paris drops the pretense of being French, Le Fooding will organise several multinational corporations to erect a statue in honor of Frenchie founder Gregory Marchand.”

John Talbott (2014) “Pulled pork sandwich that was spicy like no normal French person would make, some burrata and toasted bread that our friends up the street said was the best ever, and a weird, in a nice way, cold slaw.”

Lost in Cheeseland (2013) “I’m convinced that this place is liable to become my breakfast, rather than lunch, canteen. The team roasts Has Been coffee (from the UK) and were trained by the Ten Belles crew so you can be sure your morning brew or latte will be precise. To go with my noisette, I opted for a hulking bowl of fromage blanc covered in homemade granola and topped with plump berries. Trish ordered a celestially silky hot chocolate, served in a giant mug, that made Angelina’s hot chocolate seem like low-grade sludge. We split an absolutely sinful beignet which oozed passionfruit cream from the first bite.”

L’Express (2013) “Reuben’s sandwich? C’est le truc à ne pas rater: un remarquable pastrami préparé et fumé sur place, du keen’s cheddar, un coleslaw à base de chou rouge et de betterave, le tout logé entre deux tranches de pain des amis (signé Christophe Vasseur) toastées.”

  1. I was prepared to be appalled at the prices, but (for Paris) it doesn’t seem that bad. Now if only I can find an excuse to get there for lunch…
