It’s worth heading west because this luxe Fitrovia all-day café is a want-one-of-everything dining room celebrating the delicious dishes and flavours of the Pacific. Think lotus root, mooli and yuzu. Fabulously light and airy, all white-washed, with high ceilings and chandeliers, Dickie Fitz is Australian-born Executive Chef Matt Robinson’s homage to the old country; the warming chorizo and butterbean ragù to the light smoked salmon with dukkah and hollandaise are very knowing nods to the bright, clean cooking of Sydney and Los Angeles. Both sophisticated and contemporary in its approach to food and décor, a quick visit will leave you feeling worldly, wondrous and – very – well-fed.
