This small neighbourhood restaurant has found its rightful place in a residential Fitzrovia spot, just round the corner from its blousier one Michelin star sister, Portland. It has a canteen feel with its school chairs and gleaming, hard surfaces but it’s the food that settles you into the comfort zone. So-called snacks such as rabbit rillettes on toast get you in the mood. The cooking is classically-rooted with a modern, international spritz: cod, hazelnut miso and plum butter with a side of spinach, ponzu and sesame is typical. Nuts, seeds, grains, pickling and fermenting give a heightened edge. Desserts are sublime. There's a good value lunch menu but you really do need to book.
