Nimble by name, small and perfectly formed by nature, Fleet is concise in everything from floor plan (a modern wine bar coolly fitted out with a wide concrete counter and lush bespoke plates) to wine list and menu, but entirely generous in spirit. Much of that is communicated by the warmth of the welcome from co-owner Astrid McCormack, and her passion for Fleet's wine list, and the remarkable eats conjured from the tiny kitchen by her partner, chef Josh Lewis. Caper-like pickled nasturtium buds and lightly charred curls of guanciale are the elegant foil for gently torched tuna, while an anchovy-spiked mayo makes the sweetbread "schnitzel" on rounds of sliced white the most moreish bar sandwich on the eastern seaboard. Clever ideas abound, many of them upcycling lesser-loved produce into delicacies, while the care with details, right through to cheese and dessert, keep things high-definition all the way. Destination dining.
