Summary

James Cochran has launched again in Islington, on the site of Chinese Laundry (RIP), just months after his James Cochran N1 closed (it has been retrospectively called a pop-up). He is also no longer cooking at the EC1 restaurant that bears his name (see also). The food here is “modern British, taking inspiration from James’s Scottish and Vincentian roots” and will also feature “Asian influences”.

"James Cochran has serious skills on show at his new place, with one of the best value lunch deals in London right now (3 smaller versions of a la carts dishes for £15 is a snip). A few misses in with the hits, but the service is friendly and welcoming, and some dishes are absolutely exceptional - the jerk rabbit and Devon brown crab tart particularly for me."

"The classic curates egg. The venison was superb and very well cooked and presented. Conversely the mackerel other than the accompanying pork crackling was tasteless. Would go back though. "
