REVIEW

Sixpenny might be deep into residential territory, set in two rooms of a corner cottage, but there's nothing suburban about the dining experience. Daniel Puskas even riffs on the idea, presenting an airy pumpkin scallop, a play on the chip-shop favourite, among the snacks, along with a cheese-and-green-tomato gougère, and cucumber with dried caviar, which you probably won't be seeing down the local milk bar anytime soon. Regular fine-diners may find some dishes familiar from year to year, as the kitchen rephrases some of its favourite combinations. Dutch cream potato in a centre-plate role enriched with oyster and mushroom, say, or a striking mead-vinegar custard strewn with beads of frozen raspberry. But it's a welcome sort of familiarity, not least when you're made all the more receptive by welcoming staff and a seriously impressive wine list. A quiet riot.
