"It’s not fine dining, but as a sexy, indulgent metropolitan restaurant, Social Eating House is streets ahead of everywhere else", notes a fan of all-conquering Jason Atherton’s Soho outpost. With its quirky portraits, Victorian curios and gilded mirrors, this is low-key media-land hip cranked up a notch, although some find it "too cool for school". Chef Paul Hood (ex-Pollen Street Social) is tuned into the vibe and his tight seasonal menu is leavened with fashionable ingredients – although not everything gels. That said, the kitchen has already scooped a Michelin star for its micro-sliced octopus carpaccio, home-smoked duck 'ham’ with crispy soft-boiled egg, and roast cod with kombu seaweed and chanterelles, while desserts mix lip-smacking comfort with fancy-pants deconstructions. In all, a brilliant addition to the London eating scene from the hottest chef in Britain.
