This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
A long-established live venue, the 13th Note mixes cool retro booths in its spacious bar with an ever-so-slightly more formal dining area in the back, while the jukebox battles occasional thumps of bass from basement gigs. Outside of big nights out, it’s a relaxed and casual café-bar with a tempting menu of vegetarian and vegan food that doesn’t rely solely on bread and batter (although there’s no shortage of either). A diverse range of flavours are on offer from snacky standards like chips, olives and onion rings to a light and citrusy halloumi and aubergine kebab, served with salad and flatbread. There are quite a few versions of curry, from Thai green with risotto cakes to a well-balanced Indian thali platter where tasty coconut and fenugreek dhal is accompanied by mint raita, Bombay potatoes, and cumin-flecked basmati rice. If you feel like splashing out, the cheesecake – light, creamy, vegan – is the only sensible choice for dessert.
