From Chelsea to Fitzrovia
Saturday, July 03rd , 2021
I returned to two old favourites recently. Medlar has been running for a decade now on the Kings Road, serving reliable and enjoyable French dishes. At this latest visit I enjoyed tagliatelle with truffles and poussin, followed by passion fruit sorbet with lemon Madeleines. Add in an unusually fairly priced wine list and it is clear why Medlar has stood the test of time.
Another restaurant with an unusually good wine list is Noize in Fitzrovia. This also serves an appealing menu of classical dishes, from fine gougeres through to rabbit lasagne with mustard sauce. The wine list is lengthy, well-chosen and kindly priced, with modest corkage as an alternative. It is a thoroughly enjoyable restaurant to eat at.
