Bond and Brook is a restaurant operated by Rhubarb on the second floor of department store Fenwick on New Bond Street. The restaurant, like it’s Bond Street location, is pretty glamorous; sugar is served in brass silver pots, everything in bright white and champagne comes in coupe glasses. It’s easy to see why Vogue House have this as their PR meeting place of choice.
We went on a busy lunch time although once you’re seated the environment feels a million miles away from the manic shops below. To start we had the warm flat bread and hummus followed by a Bond & Brook salad, a mackerel salad with beetroot, walnuts and mixed leaves which was well thought out and perfectly executed.
The cheese omelette, all be it a little 80’s was exactly that, a cheese omelette perfectly rolled and served with your choice of chips or salad. There really isn’t much else we can say about an omelette! For dessert the winter mess which was a twist on the good old Eton with chestnut syrup and cherries – a sweet treat, and by jove can they serve a decent cup of coffee, so decent it comes with a free serving of smarties in a small silver dish. BONUS.
Bond & Brook, to put it simply, is quite lovely. It doesn’t try to hard with the menu, the service is efficient, food is great and they get all the little details bang on. A great place to impress ones parents whilst rinsing their credit cards on Bond Street.
