Westerns Laundry

Westerns Laundry

| North London

Owners David Gingell and Jeremie Cometto-Lingenheim also run nearby Primeur and Jolene, both also excellent. Here, there's a distinct focus on seafood and the menu changes every day, although if the cuttlefish croquettes with aioli are on there, make sure you order those. In the summertime, you can take a glass of something cold out on the front courtyard and if you're really pushing the boat out, ask for the leather-bound, handwritten, ‘black book’ of fine wines.

"This is how cooking is supposed to be when restaurateurs declare they’ll just be cooking what’s fresh that day. So often this transpires to be baloney but at Westerns Laundry it is deliciously dogmatic." READ REVIEW

"Westerns Laundry is a class act: a smart, skilled kitchen with some tables attached. I won’t repeat the issues with the wine, save to say: if you want to drink, best open a bottle at home first." READ REVIEW
