Arbutus steals the show... twice

Published:  23 July, 2008

Arbutus in Soho has been voted London's Best New Restaurant by two separate sources in quick succession.

Time Out Eating and Drinking Awards and Square Meal's BMW Best New Restaurant Autumn 2006 award have both honoured the joint venture between head chef Anthony Demetre and business partner Will Smith.

Time Out's reasons for choosing the French/European-influenced restaurant make reference to the imaginative and well-executed cooking', as well as highlighting the good-value wine list that has the whole industry talking'.

Time Out's awards have been released in conjunction with the 2007 edition of its Eating and Drinking Guide, and other winners include Vinoteca (Best Wine Bar) and Sam's Brasserie and Bar (Best Local Restaurant).

Previous winners of Square Meal's Best New Restaurant awards include Bentley's (Spring 2006) and Galvin (Autumn 2005).
