Social Eating House

Social Eating House

This restaurant is from Jason Atherton and, to date, his only one in Soho. Expect a very British menu, with plenty of starters in jars too. As with all of Atherton's places, the bar is just as important - so make time to head upstairs for a cocktail or three.

"(The CLT) was a crab, lettuce and tomato “sandwich” without the sandwich. Brilliant again, though: several types of multicoloured heritage tomato in a state of perfect ripeness with a roast tomato vinaigrette and a bit of dressed crab and lettuce." READ REVIEW

"Back in the restaurant, with its mirrored ceiling, there’s a well-travelled playfulness and pomposity-free creativity to the menu, which doesn’t make a meal out of making a meal of British ingredients – a welcome antidote to the current fashion for reheated French bourgeois classics and po-faced ‘local’ provenance."

"Presentation is a strong point of Hood’s dishes, just as they are for his mentor Atherton. A starter of ‘CLT’ – crab meat, a fan of blonde castelfranco radicchio leaf, and heritage tomatoes, which had been blanched to remove the skin, was given a further umami hit with a roast tomato vinaigrette."
