Rochelle Bar & Canteen at The ICA

The infamous canteen, tucked away in a former school courtyard has finally duplicated! So long Shoreditch, this time it’s the very arty Institute of Contemporary Arts in St. James’s Park Margot Henderson and Melanie Arnold call home.

Behind the sunny intimacy of the fitted windows, we savour modern British delicacies by Ben Coombs in the signature stripped-down, stylish white room led by Fin Spiteri: radishes to dip in smoked cod’s roe; crispy smoked haddock with rouille; monks beard, tomatoes and bottarga; pretty whole quail to bone together; brill, calcots and romesco… Seal the deal by happily scraping the bottom of the buttermilk bavarois with poached rhubarb.
