Bistro Dom

Change continues at Bistro Dom, in kitchen direction and décor, but a steady focus on quality and individual flair remains. Chef Luke Southwood brings Catalan inspiration and health-conscious innovation to a compact menu. Seafood is especially good, from seared tuna with sweetcorn and ginger purée to grilled prawns in white gazpacho, or suquet, a hearty seafood soup. Aiming for dishes with great depth of flavour but without weighty fats, Southwood uses kefir in his sourdough and a white bean and leek tart. Such generous, comforting food suits the new look of this narrow eatery, with one wall stripped to raw stone, bench seating and café tables stretching along the opposite wall, beneath mirrors and eclectic art. A prominent dining bench is tailored for lunch crowds wanting shared plates and a glass from a compact wine list embracing mostly artisanal local and Mediterranean producers. Crisp and efficient service caps a pleasurable experience.
