Quo Vadis

Quo Vadis has Jeremy Lee in the kitchen and he's been cooking up a wonderfully British menu. Alas, the restaurant isn't quite what it used to be - with over two-thirds of the space given up to Barrafina. But the food is still great and if you're a member, there's an excellent upstairs restaurant too.

"There was salt mallard and pickled prunes, Cardigan Bay prawns, sweet dishes of sprout tops and beetroot, oh, and a wee tasting bowl of salt pork with carrots and parsley sauce that was just perfect when the temperature outside is as low as the menu itself insisted." READ REVIEW

"Quo Vadis is still one of the better restaurants in Soho, with its interesting and eccentric menu in a good room, and Marx’s atheist misogynist ghost." READ REVIEW

"Factor in the high-end service (tap water poured from a silver jug), and that “theatre set” is quite a steal." READ REVIEW

"...I'm going take a deep breath and try to describe the beef without having to leave my desk and forage for more meat. As I say, a huge rib, carved laterally and inch thick, each slice so perfect it almost glowed red, a thick seam of fat right through it that I can only call wondrous." READ REVIEW

"Anybody who ever ate Lee's food at the Blueprint Café will recognise that, in the trip from Docklands to Soho, he has felt no need to go on some journey of personal discovery. He has changed nothing. Which is just as we would wish it." READ REVIEW

"It’s uncomplicated seasonal fare, well-executed with good ingredients. Lee is a flamboyant chef who doesn’t confuse simplicity with timidity." READ REVIEW

 
Critics' score: 8 John Lanchester Guardian

"Lee's cooking is a good fit for Quo Vadis. There's a clarity to it, an emphasis on simplicity and impact: his food reminds me of Simon Hopkinson's (no surprise, seeing as Lee worked under him at Bibendum). That's a compliment – a big one." READ REVIEW

 
Critics' score: 8 Lisa Markwell Independent
Reviewed on February 05, 2012
"Lee might be pressing the flesh in the dining-room, but he's got a beady eye on what's coming out of the kitchen, and there's no let-up of quality over puddings: an almond tart with caramelised pears and vanilla ice-cream is sensational." READ REVIEW

"The combination of lovely Jeremy Lee, the hard-working Hart brothers and "Spitz" is the dream team of which my nights are made." READ REVIEW
