There's always been something of the French auberge about Odette's, ensconced as it is in this most village-like of north London's purlieus, although these days, the interior look is more dressed-down minimal than the flounces and furbelows of yesteryear. Cream-washed brickwork in the front room gives way to flesh-toned walls crowded with idiosyncratic prints and drawings further in, with pendant globe lights hanging on naked wires, and there are tables in the garden too, an alluring prospect indeed when the sun shines and the birds are in full song. A seasonally changing carte, supplemented by a weekly lunch menu, runs the rule over Bryn Williams' versatile repertoire, opening with a winning duo of cured salmon and crab, alongside kohlrabi, apple and cucumber, proceeding to Goosnargh duck breast with turnip, blood-orange and endive, or a meaty fish dish such as brill with Jerusalem artichokes and oyster mushrooms in chicken velouté. For dessert, the kitchen is not above reinventing the Jaffa cake, in a version made with orange cream and clementine, or there could be apricot soufflé served with chocolate and tonka bean ice cream. Not the smallest asset of Odette's is a wine list full of interesting and apposite flavours, with a generous spread by the glass.
