You’lloften find us having working breakfasts in Dean Street Townhouse but last week one of us went on a dinner date to the popular Soho restaurant. Renowned for it’s cocktails and trendy clientele – this is part of the Soho House Group after all – you’ll usually find the restaurant packed to the rafters no matter what time you visit.
Boasting locally sourced produce the menu changes seasonally to ensure the freshest ingredients are used. Delving straight in with mains we kept it fishy ordering a Sea Bream fillet with saffron – a soft flaky fish with a nicely crisped skin, the saffron and fennel working together to not only give the dish a great taste but an amazing colour and as you would expect a smell that gets your mouth watering.
Cod with celeriac and pickled beetroot was a generous portion and good Winter option. Sides of roast root vegetables and creamed spinach left us pretty impressed with the overall meal. Too full for desert we decided on coffees and perfectly dusted truffles which were a great way to satisfy the sweet tooth minus that sickly, stuffed feeling!
Not one to turn down a cocktail we headed over to the bar where we tried the Soho Square (Bombay sapphire, elderflower, mint, apple and lemon) and the Alfie (dubonnet, cucumber and prosecco) followed by a couple of killer Espresso Martinis
On a whole Dean Street gets the thumbs up from us (the date however did not – seriously who has a Kevin Keegan perm in this day and age!) the only grumble we have is that service can be a little sketchy, mainly due to how busy it is.
69 – 71 Dean Street, Soho, W1D
