Located in the celebrity-strewn area of Primrose Hill on the painfully pretty Regents Park Road, Odette’s is the ideal spot to take your grandparents to convince them that the move to London was the right one and that you don’t live in a flat share with 700 other aspiring artists.
And being run by chef-patron Bryn Williams – whose CV includes: The Criterion, Le Gavroche and The Orrery – doesn’t exactly hurt either.
The dining room is an acquired taste, with shelves, scattered pictures, and peach-pink walls that almost give it the feel of a countryside living room… but you won’t be concentrating on it once the food comes out.
Neat, robustly flavoured, modern, international dishes are why this place is a goer, where the ingredients take precedence over the film stars eating them. Expect plates such as: Cornish crab with mango jelly, hazelnut and a seaweed scone; braised shoulder of Welsh lamb with artichokes, courgette & basil; and Cornish Turbot with brisket, consommé, cockles and sea herbs (as seen on The Great British Menu).

The drinks list is wine-centric with a varied price list that should have something for everyone – including an exclusive “reserve” list (presumably for their red carpet clientele). Or as a celebration…
…when Grandad says he’s paying.
