“Always on form, always interesting” – Will Lander and Daniel Morgenthau’s acclaimed Fitzrovian has won a serious culinary reputation over the years, with both an à la carte and tasting menu available lunch and dinner. Fans say its interior is “lovely and modern”, but – despite its “charming” service – the set-up can also seem a little too no-nonsense; the focus is very much on the modern European cuisine – “every dish is a success”.
Will Lander & Daniel Morgenthau’s “stark and simple” Fitzrovia three-year-old shot to fame on opening, thanks to its “clever” cuisine (for which it was quickly awarded a Michelin star); its “super choice of perfectly conditioned fine wines by the glass”; and sure-footed service that “combines professionalism with warmth and enthusiasm”. Even those who feel “it’s dropped off a little since its debut” feel “it’s still a restaurant to go to if you like to try something new”, and on most accounts a meal here remains “an exciting prospect”.
“An unpretentious Michelin winner” – this Fitzrovia two-year-old offers “modern, informal dining at its very best” and “although it looks a little sparse from the outside, inside the welcome is warm”. “Polite and eloquent” staff offer dishes “combining creativity with attention to detail, plus brilliantly chosen wines” (“ask for the specials list for some well priced fun”). “Success has bred a bit more cockiness with the pricing” however, so it’s no longer quite the ace bargain it debuted as.
“Immaculately prepared”, thoughtful dishes delivered “with great enthusiasm” by “youthful and charming” staff create “an air of calm contentment” at this “unassuming” Fitzrovia yearling – one of the best foodie arrivals of recent years. In looks, it’s a tad “IKEA-esque”.
Portland Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Excellent cooking: a lunch of real quality, with a deep wine list (so many by the glass) and engaging service. The room lacks a little atmosphere, but it's a fine model for small central restaurants "
