SquareMeal Review of
Schnitzels and spritz are the twin selling points at this family-owned restaurant, in the heart of Fitzrovia. Dreamed up by brothers Ed and Ben Robson, the new eatery is built around recipes handed down to the two guys by their Austrian grandparents – who apparently called each other ‘boopshi’ as a term of endearment. Food-wise, the menu has a strong
Austrian and central European slant with bratwurst sausages, ox tongue, spätzle and apple strudel all featuring alongside the signature schnitzels – prepared using top-grade rose veal, free-range
chicken or rare-breed pork. To drink, expect Viennese beers, house martinis made with Kümmel instead of vermouth and, of course, the spritzs themselves: the no. 5 version will mix London Dry gin,
apricot purée, homemade orange and lemon sherbet with Prosecco (also served on tap).
