Holy Guacamole, Batman! The basement near Piccadilly Circus that was Mash Steakhouse (RIP) has been taken over. With their evil masterplan it’s been relaunched. But not just as a themed diner. Oh no! But a ‘Gastronomic Amusement Park’ with five restaurants, three bars and 330 covers in total. For the 20-seat Monarch Theatre experience, enjoy 11-courses for… £195 per person. Great Scott!! There are some serious folks in the kitchen here, though. Executive Chef of The Monarch Theatre, Karl O’Dell, was formerly head chef of the sadly now defunct, but superb Texture (RIP).

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Park Row Restaurant Diner Reviews
"This “Gotham City” restaurant is in a basement. It has a wonderful themed entrance on the ground floor, through a bookcase in a library and down dark, futuristic stairs. The restaurant, though, contains rather less fantasy. I wouldn’t have guessed the connection. It feels more like a Corbin & King bistro with a jazz-age New York restaurant theme or, perhaps, an ocean-liner. Contrary to the impression on the website, it is essentially one big room containing most of the different restaurants and bars, although the differences between them is subtle. The food was a mixed bag. The bread with truffled butter and the starters of Mulligatawny soup and beetroot salad were all excellent. The vegetarian mains were old-fashioned steakhouse fare: tagliatelle with mushrooms & truffles; and watercress risotto. We had the tagliatelle which felt a touch over-cooked & over-seasoned. I wish they had built on meat options (e.g. offering a vegetarian burger or some of the sides like Mac&Cheese worked up into a main). The puddings looked fantastic but the use of basil in the cheesecake & calamansi in the chocolate layer cake gave them an almost savoury flavour. We had some cocktails which were fine: mostly twists on classic ones. I liked the wine list which had a good range of wines at a wide variety of prices. There was a band who sung an assortment of modern pop songs which didn’t really seem to fit into the ambiance: jazz would have been better. The staff were all really helpful and friendly."
