"A real gem", "great vibe" and "great food" are typical comments from readers, who simply adore this cool neighbourhood eatery – and we'd agree with them. The slate-grey frontage and stripped-back interior create a relaxed urban-chic vibe, while colour comes from pretty plates of "thoughtful" food designed for sharing. You can pick dishes from the carte, although the seasonal tasting menu (£39 for six courses) is one of the best deals in town – think a warm salad of tenderstem broccoli, blood nectarine and hazelnuts, fall-apart pork cheek with heritage carrot and compressed melon or sea bream fillet with courgette and fennel. The restaurant is owned by an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scot (all of whom used to work for the Arbutus group) – hence the tri-nation cheeseboard. A bijou roster of London-themed cocktails and an equally bijou wine list add the final touches to a near-perfect picture.
Picture is a low key restaurant in Fitzrovia, a short stroll from the manic Oxford Circus. The interior is quite basic with wooden tables and chairs which remind me of being back in school canteens. The main focus here is clearly the food and the most popular attraction is the tasting menu with aperitif for a very reasonable price of £35. I don’t think any other tables ordered off the a la carte from what I saw which runs alongside the 6 course tasting menu...

I had first gone to Picture Restaurant two years ago during a special event during the London Restaurant Festival. We came for dessert, and it was fantastic, so I vowed to return to Picture to try them out for a full meal. Well, two years later we needed a restaurant to go to two days before Christmas (and a lot of places were closed), so I booked us in to Picture.
