‘My, haven’t you aged well?’, quipped one visitor after a trip to rejuvenated Quo Vadis. With the Hart brothers at the helm and Jeremy Lee in the kitchen, this Soho legend has been fabulously
restored and re-energised – you can feel the humming metropolitan vibe and ‘quirky, polished charm’ oozing from the dining room. Chic off-white colours, gilt mirrors, original stained-glass panels
and floral extravaganzas set the scene for some ‘flawless’ seasonal cooking championing British food. Spring could see plump salmon in sorrel sauce with buttery mash, summer might bring a delicate
