Newman Street Tavern

This new opening in Fitzrovia is headed up by Peter Weeden, who previously worked at Paternoster Chop House and Boundary. There is a ground floor bar which will have a main feature of a two-metre long, salvaged and restored enamel trough that holds the Tavern's raw bar. Upstairs is a dining room which is bookable serving seasonal meat and fish dishes.

"Their rounds of sweet suckling kid, the meat enclosing pearlescent jellied pebbles of the best fat, with butter-sautéed St George's mushrooms, are why I belong to a gym. They are why I wear a headband and bash away at the treadmill four times a week, arriving precisely nowhere. I do that so I can eat this." READ REVIEW

"The kitchen comes into its own with pudding. The chef is more pâtissier than saucier. An almond tart is exemplary, Ayrshire set cream — aka panna cotta — was just set enough to quiver, like one of Juliet’s breasts as the lark calls." READ REVIEW

"I had a quick dish of ling roe (say “ling roe” fast a few times and you’ll find yourself singing the intro to Rawhide) with a sharp lemony salad of I forget what exactly (capers and spring onions and some dark leaf probably) to clear my mind and then just the sweetest, plumpest slices of unweaned baby goat imaginable, on buttery wild garlic choppings braised down almost to caramel."

"The fact is, on real estate this prime, nobody can afford to make a mistake; and sometimes the atmosphere of no mistakes being made can feel slightly airless." READ REVIEW

"Most of what we eat is a real treat. A generous slice of smoked ham terrine and port jelly has great flavour and ‘beer onions’ prove a pleasingly rich foil to meltingly tender slices of Middle White suckling pig." READ REVIEW
