"I like Blandford Comptoir. It’s a place which attends to the essentials. It’s the kind of place where lunch makes things better. It’s the sort of restaurant that, increasingly, London does really well. And right now I’m going to take comfort in that." READ REVIEW

"Right, so, then a piece of hake. A fat oblong, bronzed on top, deliciously flaky, with artichoke barigoule: long shards of the young plant’s stalk and heart, dressed with gently acidic tomato. Sexual." READ REVIEW

"...we chose a gazpacho that zinged with flavour thanks to the addition of ginger, basil and lemon grass, and a risotto whose flavour was enhanced with Italian summer truffle." READ REVIEW
