On Café, Clapham Common
Perhaps, if it wasn't for Kimchigate, I would have enjoyed my dinner at On Café a lot more. Often when a meal is teetering on the edge of success or failure it only takes one moment to make the difference; an unexpectedly lovely dish to settle the nerves an...

Shawarma Bar, Exmouth Market
There's a little Lebanese restaurant near the office in Holborn that does a very smart trade serving lamb & chicken shawarma (sliced off a vertical spit), meshwi (cubed, grilled over coals) and kofte (minced and grilled) wraps to a lunchtime work crowd. The...

Scarfe's Bar, Holborn
A few things caught my eye about the new Scarfe's Bar menu at the Rosewood, amidst the many handfuls of press releases that drop into my inbox every day. Firstly, and fairly unusually for a 5-star hotel bar menu, it was entirely Indian, full of things like ...

Burnt Truffle, Heswall
No matter how many great restaurants open up in the many far-flung corners of the country, no matter how many times the national newspapers make a concerted effort to review sites in Manchester, Leeds and York, no matter how many places in Cornwall or the L...

Duende, Covent Garden
The last post on this blog was about Dickie Fitz, an Australasian bistro in Fitzrovia that managed to be both hugely entertaining and genuinely innovative, serving a style of Asian-Western fusion food that has rarely been seen in the capital before. I would...

The Barbary, Covent Garden
Being a 22-seater no-reservations restaurant by the team behind the wildly successful Palomar , the Barbary was always likely to be popular. Many of the same reasons that had them queuing down Rupert Street (or rather, had them putting their names down and ...

After noticing, once again, that the average length of the posts on this blog seems to be creeping up, I'm going to make a renewed effort to do a few single-dish or sandwich bar reviews. Takeaways and casual lunchtime spots are just as much a part of the fa...

The Forest Side, Grasmere
It was a single meal - a multi-course, expressionist dance of harmony and colour and flavour served at L'Enclume in Cartmel in 2012 which convinced me that modern foraged British food was the future of dining out, and that Simon Rogan was one of the most in...

Whether it's the experimental and creative nature of London's restaurateurs we have to thank, or the delightfully open-minded restaurant-going public, it seems every time you think this city's sheer variety and quality of places to eat out could not possibl...

Finding a place to eat for my one free evening in Bristol during Grillstock weekend is a task that gets more difficult every year. Always spoiled for choice for a good dinner, recently the explosion of exciting and interesting restaurants has meant making a...

The best sushi experience I've have ever had in London remains Tetsu in Clerkenwell. I might as well get that out of the way first, because comparisons are inevitable and because anyone who will accept nothing less than the finest Japanese food this city ha...

One of the strange side-effects of having written a restaurant blog for the best part of a decade is that I inevitably end up reviewing the same site multiple times under different guises. "I remember when all this was Foliage ," said the wizened old man in...
