We've been very busy this week, researching new venues to recommend to our discerning clients. Our favourite recent find is Noize in Fitzrovia. Situated near the busy Goodge Street area, this gorgeous restaurant is one we couldn’t wait to tell our readers about.
Resident owner Mathieu Germond was at Pied à Terre for 15 years before launching Noize in 2017. His restaurant is a celebration of long lunches, whiled away over the finest wine and delicious modern European cuisine. This two-story venue offers a variety of spaces for dining and drinking events. The ground floor provides smart white linen tables and a delicious view of the kitchen. Descend to the lower ground level for a more casual vibe, offering marbled tables and colourful chairs made for casual indulgence.
The real highlight for us was the food, which was something very special indeed. An amuse Bouche of savoury cheddar cheese gougeres set the scene, with their heavenly melt in the mouth texture exciting us for the feast to come. For starters we sampled the beautifully presented rabbit lasagna which came rich with meaty layers of fennel and mustard sauce. A decadent quail pithivier bathed in red wine jus was picture perfect and made us wish we were skilled enough to make them ourselves.
We opted for two fish mains. The hake with crushed Jersey royals, mussels and chive beurre blanc was sublime and cooked to perfection. The halibut fillet was served with spätzle, baby gem, crosnes and onions. Mathieu’s matching wine recommendations were spot on, a crisp Portuguese white which perfectly complimented all starters and mains. To finish, we shared delightfully moist Rum Baba. This sponge treat was swimming in rum. Its classic appeal bought wide smiles to our faces and brought our meal to a most satisfying conclusion.
