E&O’s suburban outpost may not have the sheer glamour of its west London sibling, but it does bring a touch of pizzazz to NW3. Turn up early for pre-dinner cocktails in the slinky bar; the likes of Mekong fizz, heady with ginger, lime & lemongrass, pave the way for more Asian flavours in the mirrored dining room. All the E&O favourites – duck, watermelon & cashew salad; chilli-salt squid flecked with shards of golden garlic; & fail-safe black cod with miso – are turned out to high standards, but there’s plenty more to pique the interest (tiger prawn tempura, perhaps, or black bean spare ribs). The cost of all the sharing plates adds up, but ‘exceptionally good value’ lunch & early-evening set menus keep bills in check. Next door, XO To Go sells ready meals to take home.
