Square Meal Review of Newman Street Tavern ?

Following stints at The Paternoster Chop House and Boundary, chef Peter Weeden decided to take the plunge and open his own gaff – a gentrified gastro-boozer and restaurant that has quickly become ‘swamped’ with Fitzrovia foodies. Given his CV, it’s no surprise to find British seasonal flavours on the plate – and pictures of fish, flesh and fowl lining the walls. Head upstairs to the refined, oak-floored dining room for a neat daily menu promising the likes of brawn, parsley and shallot salad, venison with black cabbage and chanterelles, or mackerel with lemon and watercress. Otherwise, pitch up at the ‘raw bar’ for a plate of Colchester rock oysters with something from the Old World wine list. The only downer is service which can be on the slow side.

Large Wine List of the Year 2013

Newman Street Tavern’s wine list is big, with more than 300 bottles to choose from, yet it never feels unwieldy. The wines are presented in a fascinating way, with themed selections such as ‘mountains and volcanoes’, ‘stone’ and ‘garrigue’, but it never feels off-putting, despite the presence of some non-traditional, hard-to-get wines.

    Saying it straight :: Newman Street Tavern

    There’s good service and then there is mind-reading. Maybe it was my expression, or maybe they’re just very good at looking after you, but within five minutes of sitting down at the table, one of the waitresses came up and asked whether the music was a little bit too much. It was. I love her. I’d read about this in the FT and thought that it looked extremely me. Slap bang in the middle of Fitzrovia...

  3. Some restaurants open with a blaze of publicity and hype, while others open quietly and slowly but surely build up a sterling reputation through word of mouth. Newman Street Tavern is one of the latter, but it’s hard to understand why this gem of a restaurant hasn’t been showered with plaudits from the outset. The service is friendly and efficient, the wood-panelled dining room with its eye-catching staircase is handsome and, most importantly of all, the seasonal menu is top notch...
