I tried this new place from the same owners as wodka last night

Not surprisingly, they did have a great list of Vodkas and some interesting dark Latvian beers. We stuck to those and barely bothered to look at the wine list which seemed filled with over oaked chardonnays and the like.

The main courses seemed uninspiring ( although it seemed that we were given the lunch menu by mistake as when we got the menu back for pudding, it was totally different ) so we ordered five appetizers. These were very good; blinis, polish black pudding, smoked eel, pierogi etc all well prepared. There was a wonderful salad of carrots, carraway seeds and honey and good braised red cabbage.

Puddings were perfectly fine; a pancake stuffed with sweet cheese and raisins and a warm cherry cake.

The service was very amiable and quite attentive although progressively less so as it got chocker by the end of the evening.

The whole bill came to c£90 for the two of us which is not too bad.

The clientele seemed to comprise entirely of city workers and stick thin models, so I guess they had transplanted them in from Kensington.

Over all I guess a 6/10
