Square Meal Review of Andrew Edmunds ?

Showing the young upstarts how it should be done, this Soho old-timer eschews hip concepts and fancy-pants interiors in favour of the basics: good wine and good food, in that order. Andrew Edmunds’ paper tablecloths, candles-in-bottles and scrawled menus represent the bare bones of bistro design, which simply adds to the enduring, romantic charm of this “cordial” Georgian townhouse. Little changes here, although some recent refurbishment has spruced things up a tad on both floors. Straightforward dishes of slow-cooked octopus with chorizo, plaice with Jersey royals and samphire or guinea fowl with roast radicchio and white polenta open up all sorts of wine-matching possibilities on a list that’s respected for its eclecticism, bin-end bargains and unusually gentle mark-ups. Bookings are taken only a week in advance – infuriating at times, agreeably democratic at others.

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...

    Seafood Review :: Slow Cooked Octopus at Andrew Edmunds

    I have only written the title and already must own up to a mistruth. I wasn't actually eating at Andrew Edmunds but was meeting a colleague for lunch in The Academy Club above the restaurant. The food however, comes from the same kitchen so it's a fair assumption that the restaurant version is the same.

    I chose the Slow Cooked Octopus with Tomatoes, Choritzo, Capers and Olives, starter size, as a light lunch with a plate of French bread to soak up the delicious juices. I have cooked and eaten octopus many times and the secret of success for this flavoursome dish is the method of tenderising the meat....
