London, United Kingdom

Of course like most Soho places it is very pretentious with waiters who look like models and the interior is decorated with marble statues and modernist art. It opens out onto Old Compton Street where you can get a pavement table and watch the world go by. The food is excellent and the place excels at salads, grills, pastas and roasts. I would recommend the char roast chicken with teriyaki sauce. The best pastas consist of black ink tortellini with basil, scallops and wild mushrooms. Delicious!
So the next time a visiting American friend makes remarks about English cooking. Bring them here and watch them eat their words as well as the delicious food.
