Squaremeal Review of Tuttons ?

Opposite the Royal Opera House, Tuttons has been a Covent Garden fixture for over 30 years and recently re-opened following a serious brush-up. The brasserie-style interior features red leather banquettes, mirrors and brass fittings – a smart match for the distinctive Portland stone and brick exterior that was designed for the Duke of Bedford’s estate in 1886. The kitchen deploys native ingredients for a roster of British and European dishes designed to reassure the tourists, but the results can be uneven: our starter of black pudding and savoy cabbage lacked punch and sticky toffee pudding arrived lukewarm, though pan-fried sea bass was perfectly cooked and a salad of warm Gressingham duck with girolles, broad beans and pomegranate delivered fine textures and assured flavours. Breakfasts and theatre deals are tailor-made for the location, and there’s a popular terrace for fine-weather lounging on the piazza.

An airport terminal in London’s West End for foreign hauls to mix and gather and bumble around knocking into each other; photographing the eclectic mix of punks, students and affluent John/Jane’s in their evening opera attire. Tuttons Brasserie sits on the edge of the Garden square (11-12 Russell Street) and has been calling this rather...
