The menu is simple, made up of bites, starters, mains and sharing sides (which are big enough to be a main course alone). The bites are perfect to get you started, and the Crispy rock crab claws are definitely worth a go. Starters vary in size, however the Buratta is a hefty portion of milky cheese seasoned well and great to share.
The main courses are where the ‘bones’ come into play with each piece of meat served on, or just off the bone. Dishes include Whole roasted Poussin, Whole sea bass, delectable Lamb rump and Confit duck leg. The sharing sides, which include Roasted aubergine, Watermelon and feta salad, Warm lentil salad with hallumi and Wok fried kale add excitement to the mains and offer a real variety of flavours and textures, we recommend you order a few to share with the table.
Cocktails are creative with a selection of stylish sips that include the Monks Habit; Havana light rum, Frangelico, Cointreau and pineapple juice; the Asian Provocateur with vodka, lemongrass, lime, lychee juice and chilli, and the Everyday Tea, made with Little Bird Gin, Earl Grey, fresh lemon and sugar syrup.
Although some dishes are better than others (steer clear of the Octopus salad and Padron [spicy] peppers as there are certainly better options available), Bones is a glorious showcase of what the Goodman brothers can do.
