438 Kings Rd.
London , England , United Kingdom

This small, understated restaurant has the feel of a neighborhood bistro, but it is as accomplished and interesting as London restaurants with much bigger reputations. Chef Joe Mercier Naine’s prix fixe meals (around $60 for three courses) center around reworked bistro dishes like a duck egg tart with red wine sauce, turnip puree, lardons and sautéed duck heart—a pull-out-all-the-stops interpretation of the simple Burgundian classic, oeufs en meurette (poached eggs in red wine sauce). The room is quiet, decorated with bright emerald green banquettes and patterned wallpaper that turns the restaurant’s name—an obscure Asian fruit also known as a loquat—into a design theme.
