Located by the theatre on Cambridge Street, West End, this restaurant is an outgrowth of the more formal Atrium, located in the same building.
I had the endive, blue cheese, walnut and pear side salad for my starter. Very traditional flavors served in a small, handless cup. Very awkward to eat, but well balanced. The blue cheese was very "blue" and bounced off of the endive and pear nicely. DC had a Scotland tomato salad with a balsamic dressing. It must have been good since there was no offer to share even a bite.
We both elected to have the light supper-sized fishcake with spinach and tomato salsa. DC didn't care for this accompaniment, so it was added to my plate. The fishcake was a combination of salmon, haddock and cod with very little filler. It had been dredged in bread crumbs which were then cooked to a very crisp crust, almost as though it had been deep fried. I prefer the more homestyle coating which is a little softer, but the DC loved the crispy crust. Of course the mains were served in pasta bowls. It was a very good fishcake overall, though I think two [the dinner size] would be too much for one serving.
We selected a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc which though not exceptional, was very drinkable at a reasonable price.
The room is very modern, or maybe barren is a better word. Each table is given one menu attached to a large and heavy block of wood. For some reason, there is a television at the end of the bar which was playing "Lord of the Flies" without sound. Most of the tables were populated by large groups, all clearly having a wonderful time.
The service was very professional. Food arrived quickly, and we were left alone to enjoy our wine and conversation. Once we asked for the bill, it arrived promptly.
