Black pudding. Bone marrow. Colcannon. 4Fourteen sports a strong Irish accent, yet it's about so much more than just counter meal favourites. Lesser-known (and lesser-loved) parts of the beast are given hero status, from charry lamb ribs crowned with pickled cabbage to a quesadilla-like ox tongue and celeriac "sandwich" served on a smear of mustard. Expect plenty of gutsy, share-friendly cooking, although the rich smoked beef brisket with roasted taters, onion rings and a tomato salad makes for a hearty meal for one. Offal is but one part of the story: like the inviting, smartly appointed room, the kitchen can also do razzle-dazzle. If a delicate white chocolate and burnt caramel sandwich doesn't impress you, the offer of a lovingly aged Pedro Ximénez wine match probably will. Then there's the switched-on, upbeat service, yet another reason to make this vibrant eatery your new favourite.
