This is the second restaurant of Todd English, who owns the very successful Olives. In a street market, this looks like a tourist place but does above average seafood. I had an excellent scallop on a bed of baked beans, though a tuna burger was less good, with rather soggy chips. Ther ewas a decent wine list, but as befits a celebrity chef-owned place, the service has lots of attitude. On a sunny lunchtime in a completely empty restaurant I asked to sit outside – “We don’t seat singles outside”, was the response, with a look as if I’d asked to sleep with the chef’s daughter. After a discussion with the manager, I was grudgingly granted a seat in the sunshine, and the world did not seem to come to an end as a result of this request.
