Stanza

Stanza

Surprisingly hard to find, given that it is located right in the middle of Shaftesbury Avenue, this is the former home of 1990s celebrity destination Teatro. It's been given a democratic makeover, to become Stanza, a bright bar/restaurant focused on hearty portions and friendly service. The chic-but-bleak modern space has been softened with a carpet, and dark furniture. Though it was empty on our Tuesday lunchtime visit, the long bar must give it a pleasant bustle at busier times. The food was thoroughly hearty, and sensibly priced. A blandly filling crab soup was followed by a joyous fish pie, whose ethereal mash was packed with maritime surprises. A good range of prices on the wine list and the menu means Stanza is suitable for most pockets.
