  • Square Meal

    Square Meal Says…

    While the skyscraping original shouts destination dining, the St James’s newcomer really does have a local outlook: handy if you’re in the area for a quick breakfast or lunch, or a pre- and post-theatre/cinema supper. Speed is key: diners queue to place their order at a counter before being shown to a seat (many at a communal bench), from where table service is available for any extras.

  • Just Opened London

    Just Opened London Says…

    The first thing you see upon entering is the bar, where you can have a look at the menu (and grab a drink, obviously) before placing your order at a counter, a little bit like a fast food restaurant. You then sit down and they bring the food to your table. It’s much more relaxed and a completely different vibe to the original Duck & Waffle... The drinks offering centres around something they’ve called Taps & Tails, which means cocktails on tap (including negronis) and also wine from casks. The idea is to deliver consistent products, fast.

  • The Nudge

    The Nudge Says…

    The interior is a sight to behold, with low lighting revealing a soft-edged industrial vibe that includes a ceiling covered in wooden and corrugated metal... The emphasis is on pace, with counter ordering before you sit, or options to pre-order and collect to take away. Even drinks are given the speed treatment, with bespoke cocktails on tap (a mojoito, a white basil spritz, a ‘Duck and Stormy’, etc.) accompanied by local brews. Sounds like they’ve got all their ducks in a row.
