David Moore’s illustrious Fitzrovian “continues to shine” under the tenure of head chef Asimakis Chaniotis, and this “elegant” townhouse remains one of London’s foremost temples of gastronomy. “Letting Chef Chaniotis take you through an evening with a custom tasting menu is second to none”“he really is a master of meat, but they have great vegetarian and vegan tasting menus too”, and “there’s always something new and exciting” to sample. “An impressive wine list and a great sommelier’s intelligent recommendations” complete the formula. The proportions of the building are not expansive, but tables are “well-spaced” and the overall experience is an “intimate” one.

“David Moore’s gastronomic home has stood the test of time through many chefs that have gone on to star elsewhere”. All reports on this “world-class” Fitzrovia townhouse agree that – with the help of Asimakis Chaniotis at the stoves (since October 2017) – “it is amazing how standards have been maintained” with “creative cuisine that’s delicious but not fussy”. “Friendly guidance from the knowledgeable and engaging sommelier” is another plus in navigating an “exceptional” wine list, with “interesting and well-priced vintages from unusual places”. Gripes about the ambience were largely absent this year, with typical feedback describing it as “always elegant, always stylish”. Top Tip: “the space at the front of the restaurant is more crowded – ask for the back room when booking”.

“David Moore runs a tight ship to maintain standards” and his “comfortable” Fitzrovia townhouse represents “perfection” for its many fans on account of its “unfailingly impressive” cuisine, “awesome” wines, and “good but not overly solicitous service”. There’s an undertow on ratings however, from sceptics who are slightly less wowed – they say “it’s not a bad place, but for these prices perhaps a bit, well… beige”. The griping is from a small minority though – overall this remains one of London’s highest-achieving foodie temples. (There has been a lot of change afoot here post-survey. Popular sommelier and co-owner Mathieu Germond announced he was to leave to establish nearby Noize, and in September 2017 chef Andy McFadden moved on, with Asimakis Chaniotis moving up within the ranks.)

“In spite of another chef change, it goes from strength to strength!” – David Moore’s “intimate” Fitzrovia townhouse is one of the capital’s most enduring havens of gastronomy, with “very precise, fine attention to every detail”. “Staff are charming from start to finish” and Andy McFadden’s “assured” cuisine can be “extraordinary” (“he makes the food burst into life!”) There’s “one of the best cellars in London” too, presided over by the “helpful and hugely knowledgeable sommelier”, Mathieu Germond.

"Bit nippy. Food very good though: scallops; skate; rhubarb with ‘ant’ ice cream. Service generally good, though should have waited until after we’d ordered to bring us the canapés - think one included meat, which one of us doesn’t eat!"
