Michael Nadra, Restaurant & Bar Primrose Hill
Classically trained chef-patron Michael Nadra prides himself on serving high-quality cuisine in a sophisticated yet unpretentious setting; informal fine dining reigns supreme at his restaurant. Boasting a neighbourhood feel, the ambience of the canalside Primrose Hill restaurant reflects that of the original Chiswick branch, with the added benefit of a garden terrace, raised fireplace and Martini bar. There’s even a Grade II listed horse tunnel at the heart of the restaurant, providing a unique vaulted space for all occasions. Standards are high in all respects. Creative dishes are carefully crafted using the finest ingredients and the menu is ever-changing to showcase in-season produce. Perhaps begin with salmon ceviche with chilli-pickled cucumber, followed by wagyu fillet steak and Welsh braised cheeks with wild mushrooms, truffled mashed potatoes and spinach. The wine list comprises 200 bins from around the world. Quality cuisine and stylish surroundings make these hidden treasures well worth seeking out.
