Randall & Aubin



Theatrically camp waitors: check. Belting house music: check. Randall & Aubin is a Soho institution - a seafood restaurant bursting at the seams with rowdy twenty-somethings all chucking back white wine, necking oysters and yakking away exuberantly. There is atmosphere in bucketloads, and did I mention that the food is also very good? The decor is also very cool in an old school sort of way: I lusted over the white bathroom tiled walls, marble bench tables and the flickering candles. Great for meal out where you don’t feel the need to have a hushed conversation, and you don’t mind shouting into your partner’s ear above the din of Ibiza party classics! Beaucoup de fun – passez la mayonnaise...

This is what we ate:

Fried whitebait with mayo:



Scallops with fennel - dreamily good, amazingly caramelised:



Sole fillets - like very posh fish fingers:



Zucchini frites with basil mayo:
