Thomas Straker spent lockdown becoming an Instagram star uploading cooking videos; his debut restaurant was going to be Acre in Queen's Park, but it's had an upgrade to Notting Hill and a name change. His aim is for it to be an "epic neighbourhood restaurant" with "east London wine bar vibes".

“A hot new ticket north of the Portobello Road” – Insta fave-rave, Thomas Straker’s “super-busy” new 40-seater opened in November 2022 and has a “brilliant atmosphere” driven by “passionate chefs creating unusual food in a sharing plates concept”. At their best, results are electrifying, but the odd misfire is not unknown: “the famed butter-drenched flatbreads were over burnt, so the waiters trying to upsell us was annoying… the doughnuts and langoustines were heaven though!”

Summary

Thomas Straker spent lockdown becoming an Instagram star uploading cooking videos. His debut restaurant was going to be ‘Acre’ in Queen’s Park, but his plan had an upgrade and name change to this 40-seater in Notting Hill. His aim is for it to be an ‘epic neighbourhood restaurant’ with ‘east London wine bar vibes’; and a local-sourcing ethos designed to ‘really ensure each ingredient has its moment in the spotlight’.

"Caring, convivial service. Excellent food from sweetbread to venison. Knockout duck gnocchi. A warm hug of a place. "
