In the heart of Soho Zilli Fish on Brewer Street has the feel of a neighbourhood bistro, which is to its credit given the growing fame of its founder - as we left after lunch Mr Z was also heading off on his bicycle. For a Wednesday afternoon the place was busy if not 100 per cent packed. Trade certainly looked good, the breadth of the menu (and the depth as far as prices are concerned the fish, chips and mushy peas a steal below 10) meaning there were people on adjoining tables tucking into some nicely aromatic squid, mounds of mussels, and beefy looking tuna steaks as well as the chippie-style dish. We went for the smoked trout with poached egg on crushed new potatoes as starter, good but maybe needing something a bit punchier to lift it, or perhaps a smokier-cure fish. The main was John Dory fillet served on a Caesar salad, far more satisfying: the John Dory was beautifully fresh tasting, done to perfection; the anchovies in the salad made a nice salty counterpoint to the bigger fillets. Washed down with a crisp appley Italian white and finished with a real espresso the meal was satisfying without making the rest of the afternoon a struggle, and the service just right - there when needed, absent when not.
