Salon 22

Squaremeal Review of Salon ?

Brixton’s Market Row is developing into something of an all-round foodie destination, although we think the pick of the bunch is this shabby-chic bare-bones dining room above what was Cannon & Cannon’s charcuterie shop. Chef/owner Nick Balfe’s off-the-cuff evening events have developed into a confidently run restaurant with a keen eye for attractive presentation and an occasionally masterful use of seasonal ingredients – not to mention a zealous commitment to ‘zero waste’. Meals are founded on a fixed-price four-course menu shot through with inventive touches and bright, perky flavours: fresh coco beans topped with cured egg yolk; fillet of pork with salsa verde; duck egg custard with roasted plums. The handpumps champion local breweries, while the wine list celebrates Old World producers. Salon is also open for weekend brunch featuring equally creative, on-trend ideas such as scrambled eggs with ’nduja on toast. If you’re in casual mode, drop into the ground-floor Store Room deli/café for grilled cheese sandwiches during the day and drinks in the evening.
