There's an amazing new restaurant in Crouch End, I went there today but I can't remember what it's called, it's opposite the Queen;s pub and it begins with an M. It's just opened and the food is fantastic. I asked and it's a family run business and the head chef trained under Marco Pierre White, really delicious high quality food. English and mediterranean, I had roast duck breast, my father had asparagus soup. So stupid I can't remember the name but anyway keep an eye out for it.
Macdonalds? Only joking. I will go tonight. Chang
That's it, melange. Apparently the chef was the head chef of strada for over a decade and left to set up his own quality restaurant. Really reasonable prices especially for lunch.
this sounds good! am trying to find a website but no luck. Is booking required from your experience, also is it a restaurant or a bar with food? I always mean to venture over the hill more but so spoiled on SGR!
It doesn't have a website or phone number just turn up! He used to work at Strada, Cote and Marco P White's Mirabelle!
Have been back twice since I wrote this and have really enjoyed all three meals. It's amazing value and you don't need to book at the moment. The staff are lovely. I recommend the full English. Big thumbs up. Good if you have kids too as there is a play area and a baby changing toilet plus loads of high chairs and room for buggies,
i'll add my vote to melange. we went earlier this week and I enjoyed my mussels then steak n chips. can't remember what fish mrs crispy had but she enjoyed it!
Melange is well named, my experience of the restaurant on Sunday afternoon was decidedly mixed. The staff are charming but ill informed, the decor is pleasingly simple but draughty in the extreme and the meal itself was a real curate's egg of an experience. 'Carpaccio' when it arrived turned out to be bresaola, my question to the waitress on this point was met with the vaguest dissimulation along the lines that, she was sure the chef had not deliberately attempted to mislead us. No matter, the bresaoloa itself was quite tasty. The walnut, blue cheese and chicory salad was refreshing but bland.
