Breakfast or brunch is “a real treat” at this all-day bar-brasserie just north of Oxford Street in Fitzrovia, which provides “a fantastic choice” in a “lovely open setting”. There’s little feedback on dining options later in the day, despite a recent revamp and the introduction of a five-course tasting menu.

For “a social start to the day” or to kill off “a boozy afternoon”, many recommend this all-day bar/brasserie just north of Oxford Street in Fitzrovia, whose vibey looks and “great brunch menu” have earned it a big fanclub. At other times, some reckon “the food is underwhelming” – a view possibly shared by the management, who shut up shop for ten days in August 2019 to give the interior and general offer a ‘facelift’. It now boasts a new long bar and five-course tasting menu.

“Fun” Fitzrovia all-day brasserie, with vaguely Manhattan-esque undertones, where breakfast and weekend brunch are the favoured times for a visit, although it’s also tipped by creative types as a good place for a business meal. But be warned: one person’s “buzzy” can be another’s “fiendishly noisy”.
