Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Much like Brazil, the country that inspires it, Fadenza is a busy, atmospheric place with a wonderful, lively feel. The concept is simple: pay the set price for lunch or dinner, then sit back and get ready to sample a huge array of meats cooked in a multitude of ways, delivered to your table by welcoming and attentive staff who keep the whole experience from feeling conveyor-belt impersonal. With eight cuts available for lunch and a gluttonous fifteen for dinner, it can be tough to keep up the pace, but if you turn your handy card from green to red the servers will give you a break while your stomach catches up. Meat is cooked medium rare as standard, but you can request that some cuts are cooked to your preference. Sides are served buffet-style and range from cured meats to salad to feijoada, making a welcome contrast to all that meat – but don’t overload as the skewers are definitely the main event. Brilliant for groups (a set price makes the end of meal bill-wrangling a dream) they have convincing veggie and vegan options too. The wine list is full of accessible choices, and desserts (if you have room) are mostly light and refreshing.
