Harden's survey result
Tiny Canonbury fixture, with “a small but perfectly formed menu” of ambitious modern European dishes, prepared in an open kitchen – “wonderful, well-flavoured, light cooking”, from “the amazing roast potatoes to the soups and everything in between”.
“Beautifully presented, interesting and well-cooked” modern dishes of a high level of ambition justify the trip to this Canonbury two-year-old at the ‘wrong’ end of the Essex Road. But it loses some points for “close tables”, “small portions” and “high prices given the location”.
“Worth the trip to the fringes of Islington”, says (a Hammersmith-based) fan of this quite ambitious yearling, at the wrong end of the Essex Road – “the people couldn’t be nicer”, it has a “great vibe” and its Nordic-influenced modern cuisine is consistently highly rated.
“A gem of a place situated inauspiciously at the wrong end of Essex Road” – a new Islington opening on the site of 3 Course (RIP), whose “location can be overlooked” thanks to its “taste-bud tickling” modern European fare, with interesting Nordic and German touches.
