Upstairs Bar & RestaurantNo longer a well-kept secret, Brixton's best restaurant is still impressively well-concealed, with just a small buzzer advertising its existence on the second floor of an attractive townhouse. The atmosphere in the buzzy bar and tiny dining room is charming, mixing smart contemporary decor with a sense of clubbable informality. The food is contemporary European, full of clever, unusual combinations like sea bream with curried scallop, and interesting little stacks of stuff. Prices are the highest in the area, but still excellent value.
