The Theatre of Dining At No4 Blake Street, chef Tom Randolph seeks to create a memorable dining experience, driven by what he calls “the theatre of dining”, with culinary creations presented to intrigue, surprise and delight guests. No4 Blake Street prides themselves on preserving the art of fine food in a setting which does it justice. In simple terms, they respect the source of what they cook, and incorporate as much of the product – whether it be fowl, fish, flesh or the best of the fields – into the dish as possible. The menu is ever changing, and the wine is there to bring the best out of the food. It’s a harmonious dining experience. And a brilliant one at that. During the day, No4 Blake is a friendly neighbourhood cafe, serving breakfast and a children’s menu from 7am to 3pm, with lunch from 11.30am to 3pm. High tea is served on Saturday afternoons from 2pm to 5pm. On Tuesday to Saturday evenings from 6pm to late, the restaurant is transformed into an intimate space for fine dining. No4’s fresh and sustainable food ethos is carried through to the more casual wine bar, Next Door at No4, where there’s good wine, good cocktails, good beer – and great food, served simply - but ridiculously well. Can’t decide what to have? The ‘Trust the Chef’ option solves that dilemma, as the kitchen decides the dishes for you. How’s that for taking the work out of your evening? We’ll go for that thank-you very much. Best dish: “amuse bouche” - summer corn custard served with truffled popcorn and delicate renditions of mushroom: pickled shimeji, porcini foam and mushroom glass, sprinkled with dainty micro herbs

A mild-mannered suburban café by day, No 4 shows its true colours at night. Across comes a heavy purple curtain to tidy away the open kitchen, and on go dramatic table spotlights, drawing attention away from the minimaliread review...
