| Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden

This "informal" restaurant features former head chefs from both Arbutus and Wild Honey as Alan Christie and Colin Kelly go it alone. It's divided into a bar area at the front and more traditional dining down the back. Expect some excellent value on their special tasting menus too.

"I ate a lot of food and paid £25. If you like decent modern grub that’s a little bit fancy, are not loaded or deaf, and haven’t got all day, this place is for you." READ REVIEW

"Picture isn't a star performer, around which you might build a whole night's schedule. It's the kind of well-crafted, enjoyable format you find yourself returning to again and again. And that's mainly because – just like the BBC, for all its faults – they really seem to care about their customers." READ REVIEW

"There’s some solid cooking and delicious flavours on offer here but a succession of wildly divergent dishes of varying quality means that a completely satisfying dining experience is out of the picture." READ REVIEW

"The dishes are delicately flavoured but executed with excellence. If you’re in the area, this is definitely the hot new spot to do lunch or a light dinner." READ REVIEW

"Despite uneven dishes, Picture still has much to recommend it. The staff were charming and on the ball, and the wine list offers lots of interesting and unusual wines by the glass, such as a rosé pinot noir from the Loire." READ REVIEW
