Fodor's Review

It's a triumph of taste over technology at wunderkind Ollie Dabbous's extraordinary game changer off Charlotte Street in Fitzrovia. Startlingly minimalist, pure, inventive, and seasonally based new-wave dishes elicit Oohs! Aahhs! and Oh-my-Goshes! in a flummery-free hard-edged NYC–industrial–chic setting of exposed concrete, overhead ducting, and heavy metal screens and cages. Phenomenal flavors abound. Ingredient-led dishes like a peas-and-mint appetizer ping your taste buds with frozen mint tea, edible violets, and broad bean flowers, and a famed coddled hen's egg with smoked butter and woodland mushrooms sits handsomely in a rustic-chic bowl of hay. Palette-popping barbecued Ibèrico pork with acorn praline, halibut with coastal herbs (sea aster and oyster leaf), and brittle chocolate ganache with green basil moss are instant classics, and set Dabbous apart as one of London's most dazzling talents. Book far in advance.
