“Hush” is a bit of misnomer as the music was noisy and distracting, although it was Monday night so there weren't many people around to absorb the thumping with the expected chatter and laugher of a Friday. The cocktails took time in coming but our French-accented waiter was very annoyed that someone had been designated some time previously to give them to us and had failed. Strawberry bellini and watermelon martini -couldn't have been more delicious on a warm night. The food was excellent even though one gets the impression that Hush is a drinking venue with a limited menu designed to absorb the extensive cocktail and wine list. The starrters of lemon sole fingers wih a garlicky tartar sauce and Dorset crab were meals in themselves although too much greenery. Seared tuna with a Nicoise salad and grilled half a chicken with avocado and mini gem lettuece – both fresh and beautifully cooked. The wine was excellent – the list extensive and for the City very reasonably priced. Lovely lavatories and comfy seats seal the resolve to return soon. The star of the show however is the waiter- attentive without being obtrusive, able to pour wine like a top sommelier – nothing was too much trouble for him. He even ran down the street ,after I had left, to return my sun-glasses. Top marks to him, but he'll be moving on soon!
