Sonny's Kitchen

94 Church Road, Barnes, LONDON, SW13 0DQ

2 rosettes

Sonny's, part restaurant, part food store, has occupied its premises in a parade of shops for a generation. Chefs may come and go, but constant updating and reinvention keep the place ahead of the game, and changes in decor make for a comfortable, relaxing and welcoming space. The sensibly concise menu offers enough variety and sunny Mediterranean accents to keep regulars returning again and again. Standards are consistently high, whether it's a neatly tweaked classic - grilled asparagus with a deep-fried bantam's egg and wild garlic aïoli, say - or foie gras and chicken liver parfait with pickles and toasted sourdough bread. Otherwise, start with the likes of nettle and lovage soup with poached haddock and Jersey Royals before main courses like pan-fried sea bass with prawn and saffron risotto or a veggie offering of roast artichoke and cauliflower with duck egg, wild mushrooms and truffle. Puddings end on a satisfying note: vanilla pannacotta with passionfruit and lime shortbread, or rice pudding with rhubarb compôte, or lavender cheesecake with Eton mess.
