Tim Brice, aka ‘Captain Chilli’, bravely launched London’s first dedicated Cincinnati-style chilli restaurant in February 2021. It occupies the small (40 seats) former Shoreditch premises of Rök and Emile (RIP). Part of the vogue for Americana-driven menus, Tim has developed a chilli-filled brioche ‘bombshell’ for his new venture. Each batch is three days in the making and – the coup de grâce – you inject your Chilibomb with a syringe of chilli-infused oil to get the level of heat that you desire.

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).
