They say that all good things come in small packages (apart from meerkats – those things can’t be trusted). In Fitzrovia, Honey & Co. is a small but perfectly formed canteen-style restaurant that delivers homey Middle Eastern food and a heavy dose of Feel Good Factor. The play here is to go for the set menu, which lets you sample everything from amazing mezze to slow-cooked lamb and lentil stew. Come when you need something a little bit different and a little bit small. The good kind of small.
