Quo Vadis is an enduring Soho restaurant, a relaxed and affordable dining experience on Dean Street. Run by the restauranteurs Sam and Eddie Hart, with Head Chef Jeremy Lee (of Blueprint Cafe) taking charge of the Quo Vadis kitchen, the Hart brothers recently spruced up the restaurant and bar inside and out, achieving a lighter, pared down look, which contrasts well with the characteristic stained glass windows, and creates a fitting environment for Jeremy's much loved, unfussy style of cooking.
The menu at Quo Vadis Soho, which features engaging illustrations from John Broadley, changes daily according to the produce offered to Jeremy by his enviable list of suppliers, many of whom Jeremy has built up very close relationships with over the years. Diners can enjoy starters such as Salt Mallard and Beetroot Salad (£6) with mains including Ox Liver, Onions and Sage (£14); and Hake, Clams, Leeks and Fennel (£14). There is also a grill section, and a pie of the day such as Pheasant Pie. Every day a cheese in peak condition is delivered to the Soho restaurant from Neals Yard and is paired with an appropriate wine. A theatre set menu is offered all day priced at £17.50 for two courses and £20 for three. The wine list at Quo Vadis is succinct and keenly priced.
Quo Vadis Soho also features a bakery, where its very own baker bakes loaves of sourdough, rye, raisin bread and manchets. These are used throughout the day but especially at breakfast. To partner the bakery, chef Jeremy has designed a menu of delights that includes bacon and egg toasted sandwiches, slices of frittata, yoghurt, granola and compote and figs, ricotta and honey.
Alongside the main restaurant at Quo Vadis, which seats up to 70, there a number of different rooms available for private hire, private dining, meetings, conferences, weddings and press events. The largest space is The Marx Room, a versatile space with a max capacity of 50 standing or 30 seated. The Leoni Room is perfect for meetings and private dinners of 12, The Snug seats eight people adjoining the restaurant, and The Petting Room has AV capacity for meetings and interviews.
