BEST NEW BISTRO

Levan

SHORTLISTED BY LEFOODING

WHO
Chef Nicholas Balfe with partners Mark Gurney and Matt Bushnell, the team behind Brixton’s acclaimed Salon, are setting up shop in the heart of Peckham.

FOOD
European and seasonal, according to them. Incredibly versatile, according to us. Their offering includes snacks, sharing plates, full dishes, cheese, dessert, and a chef’s menu – £41
House-cured sardines sprinkled with thyme, which looks like a painting – £7.5
Acid-cooked asparagus in a paper envelope with grapefruit and tarragon – £10.5
Creamy burrata which oozes milky juices when you slice into it, topped with pickled celeriac and chilli flakes – £8.5
An incredibly generous bowl of steamed greens with a hint of mustard – £3.5

DRINKS
An impressive menu focussed on biodynamic and low-intervention wines. It’s quite a booklet, so bring savvy friends to try as many as possible.
Mouth-melting Cantina Marilina Sketta 2017 – £7.5
The sharply pink Brendan Tracey Gorge Sèche will taste very natural to unaccustomed tongues but it’ll win you over – £8.5

DECOR
Very cool graphics adorn the PR materials, and the interior of this all-day spot is coloured with a distinctly chic South-London feel.

NOISE
Visual instead of aural if you choose to sit outside and let the Peckham circus pass you by as wine tickles down your throat.

SEATING
Mid-century (what else?) and a bit tight, but definitely charming.

VIBE
Quintessential. When God created the bistro, he must have imagined it like this.

SERVICE
Young and attentive staff who are interested in more than just money.

WOULD RECOMMEND
Yes! Make the most of it by coming in groups large or small to gather for lunch and loudly enjoy the food, share one fantastic wine after another and finally leave to embrace whatever the rest of the day
