| Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden

Mikael Jonsson wowed many with his first restaurant, Hedone, but being all the way out west in Chiswick and being rather spendy it was never going to be everyone's cup of tea. Jonsson is one of the partners in this wine bar in the middle of Soho which means whatever you drink, you must also order some bread to go with it.

"Get down to Antidote – Jonsson's not in the kitchen every day, but his verging-on-maniacal perfectionism has clearly rubbed off on Chris Johns, who is. This is how it should be done." READ REVIEW

"Our best decisions are duck rillettes with more of the stellar bread and sharing a dozen fresh, snow-white Scottish langoustines beautifully prepared, to the extent of each claw being meticulously cracked and unsheathed." READ REVIEW

"Salt marsh lamb shoulder was beautifully cooked, and though weird at first the seaweed purée beneath actually worked well once the shock wore off, seasoning the meat with a deep, mysterious brine." READ REVIEW
