Sixty6 review 2 Users say 5/5 Rate it

A great-looking restaurant, Sixty6 is precisely the kind of place most people would love to have right on their doorstep. It's perfect for an impromptu meal à deux, it can easily meet the demands of a special occasion, and it's also the type of stylish, easygoing brasserie that is just made for long, animated evenings with a group of friends. Loads of original touches (like the rows of antique china plates on the walls, or the vaguely industrial tiles, lighting and exposed air ducts around the bar) are undoubtedly the fruits of an interior design that was a long time in the planning, and the menu shows a similarly considered and, ultimately, very successful knack for hitting just the right note. Devilled chicken livers on rye toast or crispy lemon and cracked black pepper calamari are typically tempting starters, to be followed with mains such as duck breast stuffed with apricot and prunes or chargrilled pork chop with roast apple, pineapple and pomegranate salsa. Puddings are lovely too (who could resist warm banana bread with custard and caramel ice-cream?) and the wine list crosses continents with confidence and aplomb. And, what's more, you can even get breakfast here.
