Quo Vadis Restaurant Review

: In the skilled hands of restaurateurs and brothers Sam and Eddie Hart, Quo Vadis just gets better. The twosome came to fame with Barrafina and now-closed Fino, then took over this old stager. They have reopened after an extensive modernization and revamp and have brought in Jeremy Lee as chef --- he was formerly the longstanding toque at the Blueprint Cafe. The name of the game is reliable British food, often with a European twist. Classics include rabbit, pigeon and foie gras terrine, house-smoked salmon, even the quintessentially British brown shrimps on toast for starters; and grilled rack of lamb and skate with capers and lemon for mains. Treacle tart and summer pudding are available in season. There’s a good wine list with decent mark-ups; the initial service problems have been ironed out and the atmosphere is terrific. What more could anyone want? Set lunch and pre-theatre menu 2 courses £17.50, 3 courses £19.50.
