Adam Byatt's headlining restaurant is still the gastronomic destination of choice for Claphamites. Its ‘easy elegance' and sleek, dark looks haven't dated, the linen and glasses are all pristine, and the place simply oozes confidence – charming, ‘unrushed' staff clearly take great pride in the food they're serving. Byatt's cooking is a brilliantly playful take on modern themes, shot through with a ‘wry sense of humour' – witness a signature dish of pig's-trotter ‘patties' topped with strands of crackling and accompanied by sourdough and sauce gribiche. If that sounds too earthy, try scallop ceviche with gooseberry pickle and charred cucumber or a precisely timed piece of cod, given the swanky treatment with mussel emulsion and sea vegetables, before indulging in BBQ apricots with almonds, crème fraîche sorbet and smoked honeycomb. House wines are fairly priced, and the admirable policy of lowering mark-ups on more expensive bottles means that it pays to drink well.
