With a background at Noma in Copenhagen and the fabulous Dorrance at the Biltmore, chef Benjamin Sukle and his wife, Heidi, have their own place, the understated, but fabulously good birch. Its intimate size and style (seating is around a U-shaped bar) means attention to detail is exacting in both the decor and the food, which focuses on underutilised, small-batch and hyper-seasonal produce.

Take the humble pea: simmered in a butter broth made from the shells, clams and lemons, and then served with jasmine rice and green strawberries. Utterly exquisite.
