Foley's 2What…/ After the success of ‘Foley's Tasting Kitchen', a six-week pop-up under a railway arch in Shepherds Bush earlier this year, the team has opened a permanent restaurant in Fitzrovia. The kitchen is headed by Mitz Vora, previously Sous Chef at The Palomar. Mitz is supported by Fraser Bashford who has recently joined the team from his position as Junior Sous at Dabbous. Tell me more…/ Situated on Foley Street, the 70 cover restaurant is open for lunch and dinner with an alfresco coffee bar and an open kitchen with bar seating in the basement.  There's also a queuing counter where walk in customers can enjoy a drink and snack whilst they wait to be seated at the kitchen bar. Foley's 1On the menu…/ The menu brings together an eclectic array of dishes inspired by the spice trail with flavours from the Middle East and Asia.  To get straight to the point, the food here is mind-bogglingly delicious.  Seriously, we ate our way through much of the menu, and every dish enlivened our tastebuds with each bite. For example, the unassuming sounding Indonesian peanut crackers with tomato sambal are merely a snack here, but have more flavour, texture and wow factor than entire menus at half of London's restaurants.  Cauliflower is pretty obligatory at London restaurants now and here it's perfectly spiced and accompanied by Tzatziki, tomato, smoked peanuts.  Cornflake crusted popcorn chicken pairs London's love of fried chicken with pickled shimeji, corn, endive and chorizo; and the Grilled octopus with black sesame mayo, spicy pork mince, bok choy and housemade sriracha is both hearty and zingy. Explore the cocktail menu and you'll find a subtle yet similar voyage of flavour discovery, including the cheekily named Basil foley (Strawberry, basil, blood orange liqueur, Chambord, cranberry, black pepper) and Spiced pear mojito (Appleton rum, homemade spiced pear purée, lime, mint). We went and here's why you should go…/ Hands-down, one of the most exciting restaurants of year, with a relentless array of tastebud tingling dishes and extremely reasonable pricing.  Book your table NOW, before the rest of London finds out! How much…/ £30/head for food, wine around £6.50 and cocktails at £9 Where…/ 23 Foley St, Fitzrovia, London W1W 6DU
