Concierge.com's insider take:
If you spot people peering, blushing, and pretending not to stare the way they do with a celebrity in the house, that's because the chef-owner himself is a TV luminary (and okay, maybe that's Mrs. & Mr. Paltrow-Martin at the corner table). John Burton-Race acquired the once-legendary Carved Angel restaurant (hence the new name) and thoroughly new-Brit-ized it from soup to nuts—literally—reopening in May 2004 to great buzz and fuss, and taking only seven months to win Devon's first Michelin star. The constantly changing fish dishes are based on the day boat's catch: Brixham turbot grilled with béarnaise sauce; steamed sea bass with braised vegetables; creamed leeks and oyster broth. Meat is just as local, such as roasted, herb-crusted Blackawton lamb.
Closed Sunday evenings and Mondays.
