With three "confident" and well-connected pals running the show and some bright boys in the kitchen, Kitty Fisher's has all the makings of an instant classic. It's all about the wood-fired grill here – from an intense starter of whipped cod's roe with hunks of grilled bread and fennel butter to excellent meat and "plump" fish. We're sold on the smoky, salty richness of lamb cutlets with anchovy and the ripe, rounded maturity of aged Galician steak with "velvety red jus" – although the real showstoppers are the accompanying pink fir potatoes, which come lathered with gooey Tunworth cheese and grain-mustard dressing. Most of the action takes place in the candlelit basement, where the rather louche furnishings nod to the eponymous Kitty Fisher: one can imagine the 18th-century courtesan dusting her cheeks in the same shades of pink as the button-backed banquettes. Service is on the ball and the whole package offers tremendous value. In short, "this is Mayfair at its best and least pretentious".
Kitty Fisher’s looks like it has been there for some considerable time, but has actually been open for approximately five minutes, tucked into a corner of the still somewhat louche Shepherd’s Market, in the heart of Mayfair. Named after the Kim Kardashian of her day (d.1767), Kitty was a famous courtesan, often painted by Sir Joshua Reynolds and famous for being, well, famous. Legend has it that she was buried in her favourite ballgown. Class.We are lucky to get a table; glowing reviews and only forty covers means that you have to be organised and book well in advance. Expecting to be seated in that cosy room...

I’ll say something now to start as i mean to finish this post: “Pick up the phone, & book yourself a table at the brilliant Mayfair haunt that is Kitty Fisher’s – you shall not be disappointed”.One of London’s most exciting new restaurants, this Mayfair newcomer is a snug little venue, tucked away in Shepherd Market.In the kitchen, is the iconic wood-fired grill tended to by chef Tomos Parry (voted Young British Foodie Chef of the Year 2014) whilst front of house is taken care of by the 3 friends who brought the restaurant to life: Tom, Oliver & Tim (the first two being there on the night i dined,...

Kitty Fisher’s has been on my never-ending and constantly growing list of restaurants to try, but for one reason or another, despite how close it is to my office, I had not managed to go (most often because it is a challenge getting a booking).We finally secured a reservation to go with my friend (and editor Miles) who also had Kitty Fisher’s high on his list.

In genteel Mayfair reclines this laid back restaurant with little wooden tables, bar lounge seating and waiters with a dignified yet rakish sense of dress. It is no wonder that Mr Cameron comes here to dine sometimes. He must get a little tired of being surrounded by too many uptight people and needs to unwind. Plus, good food also helps to distract from the latest new story. Or maybe that’s just me.Bread and burnt onion butter. This was ok but I admit to being unable to really taste the burnt onion taste. It left me waiting for my cat sense to tingle.
