Anyone else tired of trying out a new restaurant, think 'that looks nice and a bit trendy', and being told upon enquiry that the food is best described as modern european fusion? What does this mean? If a restaurant is not obviously Italian, Japanese or Indian, does it automatically qualify as such? Do I want to eat a fusion? Is it good for me? Anyway, The Sequel in Clapham (next door to the Picture House, near the High St) was such an experience. And I can reveal that the fusion was pretty good. Certainly as good as some unfused meals I've had, and you couldn't see the join. The restaurant looks and feels more like a bar. Indeed you can find Clapham trendies propping up the bar before or after a film. Music is quite loud like, but is not intrusive at all and tends to be lounge classics. Most disturbingly, they play films silently on a lrage screen above the bar. Fine is it's The Talented Mr Ripley, but on the night I went we were treated to Psycho. Blood flowing from an open jugular does not sit well with your fillet steak done rare. The food (fused) was generally good. I had pork loin with cabbage and spinach and although very salty was also very good. Similarly positive comments were received about the rice pancakes and the spiced quails. The wine list is OK but starts about £15 and goes to £70 or more. A starter, main and half a bottle of wine set us back about £35, which wasn't bad. Service is cool and efficient enough, tablecloths crisp and white, glassware huge and elegant. I'd go again. I think the best idea is to book a table late on a Saturday night (10ish) for a small group of friends as the atmosphere is fantastic. There aren't that many tables ad it's too noisy for a large group to talk to each other. It's not really a romantic place, more cool laidback urban living. And if that's fusion, it'll do for me.
