SquareMeal Review of Fernandez & Wells Somerset House

The latest branch of the Soho-based Fernandez & Wells mini-chain finds it in the auspicious, tourist-hungry surrounds of Somerset House on The Strand. Occupying three sizeable rooms in the recently refurbished East Wing, it has been slickly fitted out with swathes of New York stone, wood and metal, wire baskets of citrus fruit and an entire wall arrayed with legs of top-grade Spanish jamón (a signature motif); also check out the specially commissioned contemporary murals and the views over the fountain courtyard. Tuscan cured meats, artisan cheeses, rustic sandwiches and cakes are the daytime staples, with brunch yielding additional treats such as fried organic eggs in olive oil with a sprinkle of za’atar on sourdough toast. F&W is known for its coffee, but the drinks list also extends to single-estate teas and some interesting European wines from organic producers.
