Review on Ronnie Scott’s

Born in 1959, Soho's iconic jazz venue recently underwent major surgery but it's now fit, well and strutting its stuff once again. Theatre impresario Sally Greene (who now owns the place) decided that it needed a sumptuous £2m overhaul to reclaim its cult status but – fear not – the interior is still uniquely intimate and sexy with portraits of musicians lining the walls and the stage remains at the centre of things.

Franck Lebiez was drafted in from the Cheyne Walk Brasserie (another Sally Greene venue) to devise a gastro-format that mirrored the workings of the club. Before 9 o'clock, punters are now offered a modern British set menu that swings along with dishes like crumble-baked sardines, crispy roast duck breast with parsnip purée, and marinated chump of lamb with red wine and orange.

Later, the emphasis is on light tapas-style dishes that can be eaten with fork and fingers: mini Yorkshire puddings wrapped in slices of beef, single lamb cutlets with mash and gravy as 'dipping sauces', caviar and blinis for the well heeled, and so on. Snazzy cocktails, interesting wines and an upstairs private members' club with a terrace (where you can smoke) are added features.
