Joe Allen

| Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden

This long-running Covent Garden restaurant has moved from its original location, but somehow looks almost identical. There's a brasserie menu but made sure you order their excellent burger (it's not listed on the menu - you have to be in the know).

"Perversely, in this case the fact that there is nothing much to “review” is the very best sort of review. Not only has my love of a fine burger remained true and constant since the late 1960s, it turns out that the 2017 version of Joe Allen is in fact the perfect place in which to escape 2017."
