Square Meal Review of Edwins ?

Climbing the narrow staircase to this compact spot above a busy Borough pub feels like visiting a friend’s flat for dinner – though few domestic cooks could match Edwins’ vibrant modern assemblies of seasonal dishes (both small plates and large). “Indulgently friendly and attentive” service adds to the intimacy, while chatter from customers at closely packed tables gives the simple space all the atmosphere it needs. The succinct menu is built around British produce and the kitchen excels by presenting prime ingredients with minimal fuss. Duck liver is served daringly pink, its bold flavour cushioned by sweet caramelised onions; a masterfully cooked rib-eye drips with flavour gained from long ageing and a quick charring. Small plates could range from pumpkin risotto to scallops in filo with harissa mayonnaise. Weekend brunches, a serviceable wine list, and a stylish parting act – chocolate fondant with molten centre – confirm our enthusiasm for this first-floor secret.

    MotleySpicer :: Review: Edwins Borough (Soft Open)

    Edwins Borough is a New Orleans-esque salon restaurant located just above the Trinity pub at next to Borough tube station. The innocuous door leads to a spartan staircase and you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking you’d taken the entrance to someone’s flat instead. And while the layout still bears some resemblance to just that, the feeling completely changes once you get to the main room. We were greeted with enthusiasm and quickly relieved of our coats, bags, and helmets (yep we’re a cycling crew) before being ushered graciously to our table...
