Jason Atherton’s planned foray into izakaya-style dining (incorporating also teppanyaki, and a robata grill) will need to work well to fill this big Clerkenwell site (formerly Turnmills nightclub, RIP).
Harden's survey result
“One of the best places in London to sit at the counter and watch the chefs at work” is how fans see Jason Atherton’s izakaya-themed Japanese in Clerkenwell, whose formerly lacklustre ratings improved this year. It’s still an “almost, but not quite” for some reporters however, and in August 2017, Atherton announced he is looking to shift the concept to a new location (like Mayfair or Soho) in the coming months, acknowledging that it is not really working out in its original form.
For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
