Quite a large part of me doesn’t want to put Andrew Edmunds out to the world as it is such a wonderful place, and I fear a little of it’s charm might be lost if everyone knows. But I do very much want to tell you about it… 😊
Andrew Edmunds is a restaurant and it was recommended to me by Mary, and I am so pleased I took her up on it.
I rang up at the beginning of the week ☎️ and booked a table (you can book, hurrah!!) and we met in Soho on Wednesday, a bit early. We passed the queue to Bao 🍔 (I do love you Bao) but I am so tired of queuing in the cold for a restaurant, being herded in and then herded out fairly promptly 😳.
We arrived at Andrew Edmunds (you might easily miss it, it is very understated) and although we were 15 minutes early they were very happy to give us a table 😃. So we sat in the window, and studied the handwritten menu 📝, and there was just no rush. The waiter suggested we have an aperitif 🍷, so we did, and gave us a wine recommendation. There is an extensive wine list 🍷🍷- some of it very very good I imagine, but my wine knowledge is not so good. The pinot noir he suggested was really excellent. We both had smoked eels 🐬 to start with and then rabbit 🐰and fish 🐠for main (separately) and then the chocolate pudding 🍮. It was all very good – not too fancy, but tasty, and there was no feeling of being rushed.
Most of the other clientele were quite a lot older than us 👴👵 – it definitely seems a well kept secret, one the trendy youth of Soho has not discovered. It was a lovely evening and if you are looking for somewhere relaxing, with good food and wine I can’t recommend it enough.
