From the Salt Yard Group (Opera Tavern, Salt Yard, Dehesa, Ember Yard) a new Venetian-inspired restaurant in Haymarket's St James's Market development has opened, alongside a second Duck & Waffle outpost and the London version of New York's Nordic fine dining establishment Aquavit.
Harden's survey result
“Choices from the fish bar are a highlight” at this year-old Salt Yard Group venture, whose “Italian-style” small plates formula here is “mainly focussed on Venetian dishes”. Occupying a unit in the new St James’s Market development, all the “glass, flash and tourists” of this “big, chimney-like space” are at odds with the cosy style of its stablemates.
For 31 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).
