Have you tried the crab with clam butter at Sixpenny? It captures the kitchen's flair and subtlety all in one tiny, buttery cup, the sometimes bland sweetness of spanner crab sharpened by the vegetal edge of lovage and slices of baby turnip and the pop of salmon eggs. Good things in small packages is a theme here. The restaurant is small and, from the suburban street, unprepossessing. Inside, though, the wonders start to unfold, as seductive as the finest diners in the city. The rooms are quietly attractive, the mood positive. Where other haute players have an army of staff and million-dollar views, Sixpenny offers bespoke service, drinks tightly focused on the menu, and food with immediacy, whether it's warming Dutch cream potatoes and mushrooms in an oyster butter, or a striking dessert comprising a custard flavoured with a mead vinegar (made in-house, naturally) and snap-frozen raspberries. A star for the now.
