THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sugar Club Restaurant Review

: Sugar Club has taken to its new home in Soho like a fish to water---though such mundane juxtapositions as fish and water are rare at this fashionable restaurant. Sugar Club and its well-travelled, Kiwi-born chef Peter Gordon went some way to bringing Pacific Rim ’fusion food’ to London. Signature dishes such as the starter of grilled scallops with sweet chilli sauce and crème fraîche seem tame compared to a globe-trotting dish of roast corn-fed chicken breast on braised Swiss chard and cassava chips with smoked paprika and feta pesto as a main dish. Although the dishes sound like the culinary equivalent of Esperanto, the flavours are so well judged that the dishes appear as a blend of complementary contrasts, rather than a series of weird ingredients chucked together by chance. Simple pale walls and plain floor boards allow you to concentrate on what’s on the plate, though, when busy, this place can be noisy. Service is largely Antipodean and staff usually copes well, even during crowded lunchtimes. The wine list is well-chosen and turns up a couple of one-of-a-kind New Zealand wines you’re unlikely to find elsewhere in the UK.
