It's a real plus to have somewhere a bit different in this part of town.
We were on the way to see The Banshees of Inishfree at the pictures in the new (-ish) development in Finsbury Park and with one of us doing Japanese lessons Tonkotsu seems to be a logical manoeuvre. Trade wasn’t brisk on a Saturday teatime but the welcome was friendly and we got a table near…
A quick family meal before an aborted trip to view the Banshee of Inish-thing dinner at Sophie’s turned out to be the highlight of the evening (Marseilles, disappointingly, failing to beat Spurs later on). It’s a simple enough offer but that’s what we wanted. A better than usual salad went alongside a shared Calabria pizza…
Quiet early on the room soon filled up with sophisticates either dining or taking yummy looking cocktails. It was expensive but excellence is worth paying for. Somewhere to go back to for a treat every now and again.
A curious one. We intended to go to the Winslow Homer exhib at the National so we thought trying out their rebooted eatery opposite St Martin’s afterwards would be a good idea. I had a bit of time to kill before meeting at the show so thought I’d pop in for a glass of wine…
The kind of place feel loath to review because I want it just for me.
The previous Prom I'd seen this summer was the Death Prom where we Londoners were assured that should we attempt to take a trip to a concert we would either be fried by the merciless rays of our nearest star or asphyxiated by the ferocious heat of our subterranean network.
At just over a tenner this was a gut-busting feast of flavour that powered through to the end of the evening's Prom of RVW. Definitely one to which to go back to.
Credit to the guy on the grill who we could see toiling away at the back of the room - he did the beef to perfection.
