D&D adds to its already 30-strong restaurant empire by snapping up a 10,000 sq ft space in Victoria's new Nova development, comprising a café, bar, terrace, food shop and restaurant.
Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“A genuinely Nordic addition to Victoria’s new concrete canyons!” – D&D London have ‘gone for it’, with Helena Puolakka’s “French/Scandinavian hybrid cuisine” at this Nova-development newcomer, comprising a ground floor café, and more “comfortable” (and business friendly) upstairs space (“with views of the surrounding glass and steel buildings”). On the downside, despite “lovely” design the very urban milieu can seem “sterile” and – given some “bland” dishes – the overall effect can seem “just a bit meh”. Most reports though are of “interesting” cooking, and undoubtedly this is “a great plus in what has hitherto been a bit of a desert”.
