My Year of Food 2010: Part 2

6 Jan 2011

Continuing on from my previous post I bring you a few more culinary highlights from 2010:

Bob Bob Ricard (6th August 2010)

After looking for an impromptu place for dinner after work on a Friday night we went for a wander around Soho and stumbled across Bob Bob Ricard.  The exterior being relatively nondescript, it was not a restaurant I’d previously taken much notice of and often walked past it during my work lunch breaks.  However after reading about their rather indulgent sounding caviar and vodka lunch special on Londonist a week or so earlier, my interest was piqued.

So in we went and rather curiously I found myself suddenly transported back to the glamour and decadence of the pre-stock market crash 30s.  The waiting staff wore carnation pink uniforms and the décor was lavish with desk lamps and “Press for Champagne” buttons adorning every booth.  The luxurious quirkiness of the place was a very pleasant surprise.
