French Restaurant in the 1970s

Thank you. Le Gavroche is the closest I've come to finding it.

French Restaurant in the 1970s

Please forgive the odd query, but for anyone old enough to remember, they may be able to help me.

When I was a wee thing in 1977 I went to French restaurant in central London, not sure where, but the image of it is unforgettable and it is driving me insane!

It was situated in a Georgian home and above the doorway, outside, was a large cage with parrots and a peacock, I believe, all sorts of exotic birds. Inside, I sat in an armchair in the the front parlour, had an aperitif and ordered, then moved into the restaurant for my meal, which was duck, I believe. Anyway, it was a sumptuous experience and obviously the restaurant is long gone, but if anyone has a clue of what I'm talking about, I'd love to know the name of the place and where it was.

Thank you.

Regina Downtown Core Groceries

I'm going to be spending 6 weeks in Regina shortly, and I need to source a decent market. The occasional restaurant is OK, but I'm much rather cook for myself (packing my good knife, cutting board, pepper grinder, olive oil). I'll have no car, there's ice and snow, and I get off work at 6pm. Quite a challenge, huh? Everything I've seen is at least a kilometre or two from where I'm staying. Does anyone have any insider knowledge? I'd be so grateful.
