Summary

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”.

Summary

“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.

Summary

“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”.

Summary

Outstanding “new kid-on-the-foodie-block”, which crept into Fitzrovia without fanfare, but is proving one of the year’s gastronomic highlights; its “functional” and “echo-y” design covers the “bare essentials”, the notably “genuine” service (led by co-owner Will Lander) is “spot on”, and the “eclectic” cuisine is “novel” and “exciting”.
