About Twist

Restaurant Description

This casual, fun-loving concept is peppered with slogans such as ‘food should make people happy’, and as a self-styled ‘kitchen and tapas bar’ it makes a good fist of things. Simplicity and freshness are the keys, with eclectic ideas and seasonal ingredients very much to the fore – note the butcher’s counter loaded with naturally reared meats. Neapolitan-born Eduardo Tuccillo gives fusion ideas a ‘twist’, so expect anything from sea bass ceviche with fennel, radish and blackcurrant or seared Japanese scallops with Bloody Mary sauce to slow-cooked pig’s cheeks in Pedro Ximénez with vanilla and coco bean purée or lamb chops ‘scottadito’ with cumin yoghurt. The Josper grill copes with bone-in steaks, Moroccan-style lamb and even slabs of Wagyu beef, while dessert could be grilled pineapple with coconut milk and chocolate flakes. Set lunches and weekend breakfasts complete the picture.

I am not entirely clear what the twist in the name Twist at Crawford means, as it is very much a local tapas restaurant. There are cured legs of pig hanging around demanding to be sliced thinly; the music is background and unobtrusive; people who are indeed local chat with the waiters and waitresses. Every now and again though, there is something that isn't the usual fare in Spain: yellow fin tartar with a yuzu sauce; foie gras with fig reduction and aged balsamic vinegar; pumpkin gnocchi, that look like little quails eggs, and taste divine: none of these one would find in the back streets of San Sebastien, but they sit next to the Jamon Iberico, pork belly and croquettes as if perfectly natural bed fellows. Prices are standard for this part of London, the selection of wine by the glass is small but adequate and the cocktails good and fairly priced. Above all, however, what makes this such a wonderful place is the service. It is the speediest, it isn’t the slickest or the most professional in town, but it is amongst the friendliest. They understand what service is. An example: just after we arrived and were sat, a group came in for their 8.30 booking. Their table wasn't free, so the waiter did two things, swiftly and without hesitation: he gave free glasses of fizz to the inconvenienced group, and moved the group that had overstayed to the bar, taking their bottle with them. These two simple things, made one big impact: everyone was happy, everyone moved on seamlessly with their evening, feeling not the slightest put out. Compare this to the experience that I had received at Lurra a few days before, and the contrast could not have been starker: at Lurra we had been left in the cold with nothing for over half-an-hour, whilst the waitresses fannied about doing nothing about moving the overstaying table on. For the price of a couple of glasses of Prosecco, Twist guaranteed that people will come back. Failure to do so at Lurra cost a local restaurant local trade. I know which of my local Spanish restaurants I will return to again and again.

We ate here on Friday night, a fairly last minute booking trying to find somewhere in that particular area, and enjoyed a really interesting mix of food and flavours, some Asian influenced, which was unexpected but very pleasant. The restaurant is small (upstairs) and a bit bigger downstairs with an bar, and was fully booked, so I was surprised that I managed to secure a table at relatively late notice on a Friday. It seemed that most of the diners were repeat visitors. Staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable. We opted for a bottle of the very reasonable house white and munched on a delicious plate of Iberico de Bellota ham and fluffy Jamon Iberico potato frittes - different to the usual "croquettas" that you get elsewhere which are more béchamel consistency, these were fluffy seasoned mash potato and diced jamon, rolled into balls, bread-crumbed and deep fried - what's not to love! We then ordered the Wagyu beef with soy and honey sauce (very sweet, so quite a nice change to the starters), Yellow-fin tuna tartar with spicy yoghurt and yuzu, Black ink tagliolini with crab, fennel and baby tomato and a wonderfully gooey and creamy Burrata with gazpacho sauce. A thoroughly enjoyable meal, great service, great atmosphere and fairly local to us, we hope to be back soon.
