Mem & Laz’s founding father Memet is expanding his property along Theberton Street, and soon the lovely, throbbing sea cabin that is Mem & Laz – hung with coloured lanterns and West End posters – will cover a glorious 400sq ft. There’s a pile of hot bread, shot through with sun-dried tomatoes or prunes, before you even pick up the menu. Whole sardines marinated in lemon juice and coriander are an engaging first encounter, and the seafood casserole is a broad sweep across the ocean bed, set in a delicate tomato sauce and served in an iron skillet. Chargrilled chicken breast, served in a thick honey and mustard sauce, tasted more like a buttery korma than anything even vaguely Mediterranean, but was deliciously moreish all the same.
