Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10
Quo Vadis has Jeremy Lee in the kitchen and he's been cooking up a wonderfully British menu. Alas, the restaurant isn't quite what it used to be - with over two-thirds of the space given up to Barrafina. But the food is still great and if you're a member, there's an excellent upstairs restaurant too.

Critic reviews - total score 7.5 out of 10
Jordan Frieda, formerly front-of-house at The River Cafe has teamed up with chef Tim Siadatan - one of the original trainees at Fifteen who has since worked at both St John and Moro to open their own restaurant. 'The idea behind Trullo is to have an earthy, wholesome, neighbourhood trattoria that is true to the principles of the great places we've worked, while being super-affordable,' Jordan told Hot Dinners. 'Our wine list has a set mark up of £10 on all bottles, making some of the best Italian wines really accessible, and we'll look to concentrate on a small, seasonally-fluctuating menu based around a real charcoal grill, excellent pasta and risotto, good salumi and fresh, exciting antipasti and salads."

The Bull and Last
North London
168 Highgate Road, Kentish Town, London NW5 1QS
Critic reviews - total score 8 out of 10
It takes a lot to make yet another gastropub opening stand out from the crowd in London but the Bull and Last appears to have stuck to the tried and tested formula of serving simply fantastic food. They call themselves a Pub and Kitchen, but reviewers felt the food surpassed usual gastropub fare to be truly gourmet.
