Square Meal Review of Mayfields ?

Shoehorned into a former chippie on Wilton Way, Mayfields is a neighbourhood bistro of the type one encounters in fashionable Paris – although the only French thing about it is the wine list (Borough Wines, across the way, is involved). Chef Matthew Young (ex-Wapping Food) steers the food on a wildly international course, jumping from Italy to Japan across a voguish ‘small plates’ menu of smart food without fuss.

Meanwhile, a combo of beef, lettuce, mint and mustard provides a delicious inversion of the wraps served in nearby Mare Street’s budget Vietnamese joints. Not all dishes hit quite the same heights, but it’s all interesting stuff.

    The taxi driver was sceptical. You sure there’s a restaurant here, love? Is it in that pub on the corner? No, it’s not in a pub, I’ve seen a picture, it must be further up. Can’t imagine it’s any good here mate, says the taxi driver. Thank you, I say, silently.
    I am meeting J, who is a designer-planner i.e. a planning specialist who also understands design. We have both wanted to come here for a while...
