‘Perfect for those little romantic nights or deep catch-ups’, this determinedly quaint, candlelit bistro inspires dreamy canoodling with its snug feel and arty trappings – all dark walls,
mismatched furniture and exceedingly cramped tables topped with posies of flowers. Set over two tiny floors, it deals in ‘enormous portions’ of rough-hewn seasonal food with the odd creative
flourish – from chilled beetroot and orange soup or venison carpaccio with English cherries, rocket and soured cream to spicy Italian-sausage stew or melting lamb shank with thick, rich gravy. The
results have been dubbed ‘sublime’, and everything is delivered by ‘extremely knowledgeable and attentive’ staff, with back-up from a thoughtfully assembled wine list stuffed with terrific bargains
and bin-ends. Just make sure you can secure a table via the democratic but frustrating week-by-week reservation system.
I was introduced to Andrew Edmunds by a good friend as we were walking around Soho one Saturday afternoon. I think I was spoilt from the beginning as I liked the fact that there was no business card, and that we were given a menu to retrieve contact details from that was also hand written. If you were not specifically looking for the Andrew Edmunds, it can be easily missed as it has a discrete dark frontage. My first memories of the place was the wonderful smell of food when you entered the restaurant.On this occasion we were a large party, and were accommodated in their basement dining area (it was like a private dining room for us). I think there was a slight apprehension from my party about dining “modern English” especially after the few days of Asian cuisine. But I thought, it’s Sunday, so how about an “English” Sunday lunch?...
