This stylish local hub on the apex of Crystal Palace’s ‘triangle’ is just the ticket for young couples and families, who cram in for spanking-fresh shellfish, Josper-grilled seafood, steaks,
burgers and modish cocktails. The dining room takes its cue from venues such as The Riding House Café,
with rough bare-brick walls and fixtures fashioned from reclaimed materials, plus a central communal table in the lively bar and a story-time soundtrack playing in the toilets. Start with a plate
of oysters from the fish counter or salmon carpaccio dressed with tongue-tingling horseradish and lemon oil; mains come with crisp fries and zingy green salad – try the juicy grilled monkfish or a
tender 28-day beef fillet. Pleasingly rib-sticking desserts hit the spot, and the wine list entices without breaking the budget.
The restaurant opened back in May and their concept is to offer ‘uncomplicated, delicious & locally sourced food’ – Right up my street! Being a Tuesday night, it wasn’t heaving with customers, but we’re told that it often gets pretty booked up over the weekend, so if you intend on heading there I’d give them a call first.They seem to have put a great deal of love and care into the interior design of the restaurant, with tiled and exposed brick walls and the perfect lighting, style is definitely key here. Unlike a lot of restaurants in London, there is plenty of space around your table so you are not sitting on top of other diners, and the music of choice was perfect for a relaxing meal. Unfortunately, we were a little chilly so I wore my coat on-and-off throughout the meal, but I presume that if the place is busier then this wouldn’t be a problem.So, down to the nitty gritty. How was the food you ask?...
