Sonny's Kitchen

94 Church Road, Barnes, LONDON, SW13 0DQ

2 rosettes

Sonny's, part restaurant, part food store, has clearly hit on a winning formula, since the lucky residents of Barnes have kept the place buzzing towards its third decade. The unassuming frontage in a parade of shops opens into a surprisingly roomy split-level space with a neutral designer-chic decor of almost Scandinavian minimalism involving textures of wood, leather, ceramic tiles, glass bricks and white walls hung with art. The kitchen deals in inventive modern European food with sunny Mediterranean accents, delivering precise flavours and textures in a well-composed starter of chargrilled spatchcock quail with quinoa, pomegranate, pistachio and raisins, or you might get going with steamed Cornish cockles with lemon and olive oil. Main course brings an exemplary slab of roast cod, timed to perfection and matched with pea purée and potato and ham galette, while meatier offerings run to the likes of slow-cooked veal cheek with hand-made strozzapreti pasta, girolles and smashed peas. It all ends on a satisfying note with a warm chocolate fondant with milk ice cream and a squidgy-centred pistachio macaroon.
