This lovely two-storey restaurant near London Bridge station is a favorite of the group of Americans with whom I visit London on business, but we see plenty of starry-eyed couples dining there as well. The cuisine is neither French, Tuscan nor English, but rather an inventive mix of the three, with a menu that changes often, a nice wine selection and interesting featured cocktails. A small tripe and bean casserole was a beautiful starter on a recent rainy night, and would have more than passed muster with people who have never touched tripe in their lives. It was tender with deep flavors. My friends raved about the garlic soup. Duck breast was beautifully prepared; others at the table had a stew of hake and shellfish. The salted caramel chocolates are a must to end the meal. This is, quite simply, really good food if one is open to it. Staff are pleasant, the ambience is low key. It's not a showstopper of a place, but its consistency and comfort food draw us in nearly every visit.
