Visited this restaurant after a friend recommended it to me. The restaurant has a relaxed vibe with a mixed clientele or tourists, theatre people and the odd hipster. The food came in good sized portions and was cooked with love. The prices are London prices...More

This place is an institution, right? Show business people and Jeremy Corbin eat there. The staff are in an old Jewish deli tradition -- i.e., brusque. The salt beef is what they're known for. Mine was dry, to tell the truth, but the pickle was...More
