group have struck again, opening their third London
townhouse (they also have Dean Street and Kettner’s, both in Soho) in
. Situated on one of the coolest streets in the
neighbourhood, this urban bolthole has the familiar feeling of the
group’s other properties, though interiors take on a more
contemporary-cool edge (think mid-century leaning towards Seventies
retro chic) in line with its

does make this rather tempting. Serving its purpose as a

tuna/beef carpaccio and burrata for the table, before moving onto
pasta, wood-fired pizza or a plant-based main like whole-roasted
cauliflower. In fact, get the pizza for the table, so you can cast
your eye over other mains such as sea bass and steak. Do leave room
for “dolci” though – the profiteroles come with pistachio gelato
and chocolate sauce. Enough said.

Is there a bar?

Yes, and you should drink negronis at it while ogling the hot
young things around you.
