Barring some decent ethnic eateries, Hendon isn’t renowned for its dining scene. It does, however, have one restaurant that should show up on foodie radars. The Garrick is stashed inside a smart hotel, & while the dining room might look classical (soft lighting, starched linen, polished cutlery), there are some contemporary minds in the kitchen. A terrine of ham hock might be teamed with pineapple salsa & pickled quails’ eggs, while roast loin & slow-cooked belly of pork get a pick-me-up from carrot & star anise purée. Sides are equally inspired – think caramelised cauliflower – & puds don’t lose momentum, as witnessed in a smooth peanut brûlée with dark chocolate sorbet. Market menus (£24.50/30 for two/three courses) take advantage of seasonal produce. The wine list too is a well-thought-through affair.
