Few restaurants maintain the gold stamped guarantee of a good time quite like Quo Vadis. The Soho restaurant and members club is a homely institution that’s also home to two classics. One comes in the shape of Jeremy Lee, QV’s amiable head chef who has made Dean Street not just his home but a home to many others. The second is in the delicately poised shape of his famous smoked eel sandwich. Of course, it’s as good as everyone says, as is their bar, perfect for propping up with a martini, alongside the superlative chips (that wordlessly come with ketchup and mayonnaise), paté, pies, and a tower of ‘Quo Vadis profiteroles au chocolat’. Some classics flatter to deceive, but Quo Vadis is a restaurant that’s all about your comfort zone.
