Harden's survey result
Limited feedback this year on this “quirky” venue – “a slightly offbeat mix of clubbiness and restaurant” in a boutique guesthouse near the Coliseum, whose cuisine is “of the fusion variety”. Such as there is, though, praises it as “a perfectly decent choice for a pre-theatre supper”.
Limited reports on this boutique-guesthouse near the Coliseum, which launched in 2016 (and which took on new head chef, Daniel Petitta in spring 2017): fans though “love the quality, presentation and awesome surroundings”.
Near the Coliseum, a boutique-guesthouse ‘Library’, which launched a new restaurant in late spring 2016, whose menu is to rotate every 6-8 weeks in accordance with a new guest chef with a forthcoming cook book launch to plug! No feedback yet on this splendid concept, but it’s certainly a handsomely designed and very convenient venue.
