WLC Rank : 199
Glass from : £ 6 (175 ml)
Smart brasserie located on the former site of the Middlesex Hospital, Fitzrovia, from the brains behind The Thomas Cubitt in Belgravia and Pimlico’s The Orange.
A wine-lovers list, it ranges from the ‘sharpener’ of Amontillado sherry (Gutierrez Colosia), which is one of over 20 wines offered by the glass, to 17 pages of considered red, white, rosé and even orange bottles, also comprising a section wittily entitled ‘Guilty Pleasures’ (feauring a Silex from Domaine Didier Dagueneau).
Order half a dozen freshly shucked oysters on the half shell, or the excellent lobster and prawn salad with charred watermelon, mango and avocado, and then a steaming chicken and leek pie with mixed bean and mushroom salad, or 28-day, dry-aged Lake District sirloin which gains char from the Josper grill.
