This is from chef Michael Hazlewood who worked at Attica in Melbourne, Australia and more recently at both Soif and The Green Man & French Horn in London and Manager Alex Thorp.Hazlewood from at Fifteen and Vinoteca. It has a daily changing, ingredients-focused menu with a wood-fired oven which they'll be using to bake bread, as well as cooking fish and meat. There's a large wine list - but perhaps a more interesting feature of the dining room are the four 300-litre stainless steel tanks, filled with natural wine direct from the winemakers.

"Unfortunately he can’t be everywhere, and with complex, unusual wines and Michael Hazelwood’s utterly contemporary small plates to handle, the rest of the team are often stumped. The food is good, though the menu doesn’t hang together." READ REVIEW

Reviewed on August 12, 2013
"Toast is resolutely, recognisably Modern British in the Clove Club/Dairy mold, and draws its influence from that new wave of thrusting new London brasseries rather than anywhere on the continent." READ REVIEW

"In a typical dish, fresh English peas are dressed with garlic butter and topped with raw egg yolk drizzled with lemon oil, then garnished with toasted almond. The result is dramatically colourful and savoury." READ REVIEW

Reviewed on July 03, 2013
"...exceptionally fine Tuscan salami, fat, wobbly, skinned raw mackerel fillets bathed in white soy and topped with crisp ginger, a sensationally fine heritage tomato salad crocheted together with toasted crumbs, and a wondrous dish of English peas with molten egg yolk, curd and nibbed almonds. On finishing it, we immediately ordered it again." READ REVIEW
