"Good mix of modern english/amercan orientated dishes. their burgers are particularly good for a lunchtime bite. Wine list is what they are about, but whilst it is a good list its not blowing me away with value or range. Service is attentive but not too fussy. Feels like a good place for business, but not romance."

"Slowly changing its menu's but still generally as good as it always has been. I sense a slight dip in quality over previous visits, but still good value for this hidden delight off Oxford st."

"Twice here in 2016. Absolutely consistent, gosh, its impressive when a restaurant can stay on form in this way. Did not recognise anything on the menu from previous visits but as ever here everything looks tempting and is delicious - had 8 different dishes and all were top. And the sherries are an extra treat. had another great dinner early April - the spicing and tastes are so original and spot on. Its busy and the service can slow up but always charming."

"Love the "classiness" of this place, the first one outside of the US. Ambience is fantastic, it takes you back to another era. And they make a mean Bloody Mary"

hawksmoor manchesterJay Rayner weighs in on the north/south restaurant divide question

The Observer's critic-in-chief heads to Manchester to try out the new Hawksmoor and stumbles across a veggie dining room, 1847, serving great food – well, apart from the desserts. Read our roundup of restaurant news in Manchester and enter our Hawksmoor Manchester competition.

 

 

Meanwhile the Guardian's Marina O'Laughlin pays a visit to the much gushed about Kitty Fisher's

Everyone else love, love, loves it but Marina can't help but feel she's ended up at a house party she wasn't quite invited to, particularly as the restaurant staff seem allergic to answering the phone. We can attest to that having called them on at least 10 occasions without success.

 

The award for most ferocious review this week has to go to The Sunday Times's A A Gill

The critic has a thing or two to say about Mayfair's 'ridiculously overpriced' Mexican, Peyote, including: “...fiddly, neurotic preparation with pale, polite taste and silly, parsimonious sharing plates that aren’t bounteous or fun and are more like eating the catering pitch for a drug cartel’s wedding.”

 

Over at The Times, Giles Coren gives his opinion on Russian-imported pizza chain Bocconcino

“Bocconcino isn’t a bad restaurant. It just isn’t a necessary restaurant.” At £202 for pizza and pasta it's not hard to see why Mr Coren might feel that way – mind you, a £46 bottle of wine probably helped nudge the bill up.

 

And last but not least, Ms Maschler reviews Brindisa's new Morada Asador

The Standard's long-standing critic heads to the latest outpost of this tapas chain (in Soho) and finds the meats are the reason to flock here – from the 'delectable' milk-fed lamb to the Secreto Iberico.

taste of londonTaste of London will be transforming Regent's Park next month for the summer edition of this (now) enormous culinary event. The festival of food takes place 15-19 June, and if you haven't booked your tickets yet then Harden's has a tasty offer for you.

Our readers can get discounted rates on entry to Taste of London when they book online. Just use the code HARDENS for £13 tickets on Wednesday & Thursday, £17 tickets on Friday, and £25 on Saturday & Sunday. Tickets on the door are £16, £21 and £28 respectively.

Taste of London will have something for every foodie, from delicious grub and cooking demonstrations, to chef masterclasses and innovative drinks. Last year's event was quite an extravaganza. Harden's went along to the opening night, which was thronged with visitors, and tried the dish voted Best in Taste – The Clove Club's lamb cutlet with gochuchang, black sesame and mint. Not exactly finger food but damn tasty none-the-less!


The upcoming event will once again be brimming with celeb chefs, cooking demos and hands-on masterclasses. Head to the AEG Taste Theatre and catch the likes of Monica Galetti, Nathan Outlaw, Pierre Koffmann and José Pizarro. Try fabulous food from restaurants across London, such as Club Gascon, The Typing Room, Duck & Waffle, Roux at Parliament Square, Roka, L'Autre Pied and Sushisamba (to name a few).


Beer lovers should head to The Tap Room and try some of the UK’s finest craft beer, or take part in tasting sessions with master brewers from the likes of HonestBrew, Harviestoun Brewery, Wildman Craft Beer and Gipsy Hill Brewing Company.

New for 2016 and certain to excite lovers of all things dessert: Dessert Hour when one hour, every session of the festival will be designated wholly to presenting delicious desserts of all shapes, sizes and flavours to be devoured by those of us with a sweet tooth.
