‘Kitchen W8 is magnificent', trumpets one fan, adding that its Michelin star seems to have spurred on the team to greater efforts. Co-owners Phil Howard (The Square) and Rebecca Mascarenhas (Sonny's Kitchen et al) know a thing or two about restaurants, and this place combines culinary finesse with real neighbourhood know-how – ‘a perfect blend of civilised ambience and delicious food'. The interior radiates calm, while service has you fed and watered with effortless cool. Howard's hand is discernible in a menu of gutsy yet refined Anglo-French dishes – witness a stunning seasonal starter of poached langoustines with pea mousse and shellfish cream. To follow, rump of veal with broad-bean ravioli is equally accomplished, while desserts such as white chocolate and cream-cheese mousse dotted with blobs of jelly and jam look brilliantly arty. The ‘intelligent' wine list includes a dozen by the glass.
