gourmet kosher restaurant in London

Not sure whether to post this on this board or the Kosher board?

Went to Six:13 last night, 19 Wigmore Street in London. Bills itself as kosher fusion food.

I had salt beef w/dumplings & mash (jazzed up w/horseradish - though this could have used even more spicing up;shared pumpkin tart with harissa which I thought was going to be weird but was delish; and my friend (who's kosher) had sea bream with hummus and coriander 'pesto' which was a nice combination.

I had the 'tame' smoked salmon (as opposed to the 'wild', which was almost twice as costly) and friend field mushrooms on toast as starters. I'd say the 'shrooms were a bit more interesting. And we shared pavlova with raspberry coulis for pudding, which was fab and not at all soggy like pavlova sometimes can be.

Two glasses of house wine (on of three reds offered by the glass, a cabernet) and we made it out of there for about £80 something. This is my only beef...once again, it's London...and it's Wigmore Street but the prices were a bit high. Atmosphere is a bit cool and masculine, but you're not crammed in with other guests. Upstairs seemed more hopping as we left but this might be because there were larger parties. Service was friendly. The owners were much in evidence, chatting to customers and asking what they thought - which I think is great.

Now that the chef has broken the mold somewhat, I'd say he should be even more experimental - obviously he can be creative without butter or cream. I'd go back - and I'm not kosher. That area needs more decent restaurants anyway.
