Summary

“Not at all what you would expect from the outside!”“fabulous flavours and clever cooking abound” at Will Lander and Daniel Morgenthau’s “highly sophisticated” neighbourhood venture, whose understatedly hip premises occupy a deceptively humble-looking corner-site in Fitzrovia. It also features an “exceptional and interesting wine list by glass: I go online after to see what wines I should be buying at home!”

Summary

“Still punching above its weight”, Will Lander & Daniel Morgenthau’s “tiny”, “somewhat hipster” Fitzrovia haunt (sibling to Portland) “has dispensed with its small plates concept and now provides proper starters and main courses”. Fans applaud its “imaginative take on a simple range of ingredients (with results that can be superlative)”; its “limited but intriguing wine list”; and feel that even if it’s “packed” and “noisy” (“lots of hard surfaces”) “that’s not the point” for a “relaxed” and “lovely” place. Overall ratings are blunted, however, by a minority who feel “it’s not terrible, but I hoped for more…”

Summary

“An equally fantastic experience as at Portland (same team)”, say the many fans of this Fitzrovia newcomer, lauding its “very inventive, beautifully prepared small plates from the open kitchen” and “really outstanding wine list (full of remarkable, little known options)”, all delivered by “a super-friendly and attentive young team”. The “buzzy” setting is too “austere” for some tastes however, and there is a minority who feel that “although all the major food critics have eulogised, the cuisine is not quite as cosmic as has been suggested, albeit good”.

Summary

From the team behind Fitzrovia’s outstanding Portland comes a new, hard-edged and minimalist venture just a few streets away. It launched in September 2016 – too late for survey feedback – but to say that press reviews have been ecstatic would be an understatement.

"Some excellent dishes: the snack of tempura baby fennel; the anchovy cream with radishes. Exceptional wine choice for the single diner- and welcome for one also. "
