The most anticipated opening in 2018 and a very strong candidate for a Michelin star (not that I care about such things, but chefs, and some diners, do). Andy McFadden’s cooking is outstanding. To put it crudely, a key characteristic seems to be having small explosions of startlingly pure and assertive flavours forming a kind of minefield of delight with all of the other elements on the plate. He used to head the kitchen at L’Autre Pied and Pied á Terre in London.
