It's three-in-one, easily accessed by the tube, and it's not Aquafresh -- it's The Truscott Arms, giving Maida Vale a fresh three-floor venue with three distinct personalities.
The street level of this refurbed Victorian space uses its high ceilings and parquet floor to frame an elegant wooden bar, lined with 11 taps pouring London-only crafts like Camden Ink and Gentleman’s Wit. Further selections include Notting Hill Blonde and Shoreditch Triangle, which is probably just as acute.
Up one floor is the resto, where you won't want to leave this chair after an ex-Galvin chef hooks you up with the likes of cured salmon w/ crab and pickled ginger, followed by more land-based fare like braised lamb belly covered in a caviar sauce, huge Sunday roasts, and housemade beef & venison biltong.
Finally, the upper deck's the gallery space, w/ constantly rotating exhibitions in which you can down a cocktail from downstairs, including this Mews Breakfast (gin, Cointreau, clementine marmalade) or the Hot Buttered Rum w/ apple & honey. Or (they boldly claim) you can "ask for any classic", meaning the barkeeps'll definitely need to earn their stripes.
