Andrew Edmunds Restaurant Review

: The two intimate dining rooms are always full of patrons and the contented hum of good food and company. Andrew Edmunds is a dealer of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century prints and drawings; he is also something of a bon viveur as his romantic bistro-style restaurant (decorated with those prints) in an old house in Soho shows. The eponymous establishment has the winning formula of a notable and inexpensive wine list crammed with specials; a short daily-changing handwritten bistro-style menu; and paper tablecloths and napkins. Starters might be pan-fried halloumi with roast Jerusalem artichokes and pine nut salad; mains run from roast Gressingham duck breast with gratin dauphinois and broccoli or seafood stew full of the fruits of the sea. “Puddings” excel: warm pecan pie with vanilla ice cream; bread and butter pudding; warm treacle tart; cheese from Neal’s Yard. All in all, a winner. Be sure to book (though only one week in advance, if possible on the ground floor, not downstairs) or you won’t get in.
