Leading the menu is ‘The Gibson’ which is elegantly served in a signature ice-cold, stainless steel martini glass. Better known as the classic martini of intrigue and invented in the early 1900s, this gin & vermouth speciality has been brought bang up to date with twists of tingling pickled sweet-sour nuances.
The cocktail list is designed like a calendar, is seasonal and surreal! Expect delicate flavours, beguiling bitter gourds, hazelnuts, quails’ eggs, and barrel-aged balsamic vinegar-syrups.
Of course there is food, including finely spiced tartares made with steaks from neighbouring Smithfield Market, dishes of shaved parmesan, and charcuterie & cheese boards served with house-made pickles and chutneys!
We suggest sitting at the bar to be mesmerized by the meeting of precision and spontaneity!
