Adam Gray and B&H’s cocktails – a perfect combination!

Posted on

Cocktails paired with food – what’s not to love.  Mr FT and I had the pleasure of dining at Adam Gray’s new culinary home and what a gorgeous new home it is.  Adam is bringing his inimitable brand of wonderfully prepared food to the B&H home, which will bring a welcome addition to this very classy establishment.  The bright and busy main bar area, beautifully decorated, leads into the main restaurant area where gorgeously comfortable chairs gives you a view into the atrium, offering an intimate, warm room to dine in.

The welcome is just as classy as the place itself and the service, discreet, knowledgeable and so enthusiastic at what Adam is doing, has obviously created an already solid team spirit.

Cocktails – oh my!! Figberry Jazz – please spoil yourselves when you visit! Uber yum and I am afraid to say has replaced my beloved mojito!  But, the cocktail team at B&H ask why deny yourself the opportunity to try another specially selected cocktail that will perfectly match your chosen menu.  So how could we refuse!

IMG_5944 IMG_5946

The sublime rabbit and hazelnut terrine with cox’s apple and rainbow carrot salad was paired with the Three Wise Men, triple malt scotch, vermouth and Campari stirred with prune liquor.  Wisdom may not prevail if you have more than one of these.  The warmth and hint of sharpness cut through the richness of the rabbit complementing the dish completely.

IMG_5948 IMG_5949

Mr FT’s starter of poached salmon with crisp fennel, lime salad and yogurt dressing arrived with a Quincy Collins, Rathbone’s New London Dry Gin, with quince liquer, fresh lemon and soda.  Like the dish itself, this was clean, crisp and fresh.

Adam’s determination to use ingredients that he sources and trusts is something that is obviously of paramount importance to him.  Great produce, beautifully cooked was the thought that came to mind when presented with a roasted Cornish plaice, which had arrived that very morning.  The parsley sauce, iron rich, cut through the soft plaice whilst never detracting from the beauty of the dish itself.  Served simply with some rainbow chard, no extras were needed.  No cocktail this time, but a glass of Plo d’isobelle Picpoul de Pinet, a gorgeously rich wine from the Languedoc.

To Mr FT’s delight, the roasted saddleback pork chop, served with black pudding (which he could not stop talking about!) served with carrots, apple and port gravy made him very happy!  All I saw was an empty plate (apart from the chop bone!)   A beautifully crisp Petit-Chablis was well chosen to complement this dish.

In between all of this gorgeousness, we had the added bonus of the equally gorgeous Nicki, another recent addition to the B&H family.  It was one of those times where you feel as though you have known one another for ages which is no doubt part of her charm and I feel we may have taken up far too much of her time talking about much more than food and restaurants!  One thing which did delight us was the fact that dogs are welcome in the bar area – which is great news for our cockapoo Alfie, who loves to be out and about and be admired.

Dishoom – whats all the fuss about?

Posted on

Over the past few months there seems to have been quite a lot of comment in the media and on blogs sites about Dishoom. So we sent Jenna, our new head of Social Media and Marketing to find out what the fuss is all about – here is what she and a couple of friends found:

Last week three friends and I visited Dishoom at the back of Kings Cross Station. Walking into the restaurant we were greeted with big smiles, amazing smells and a great vibe coming from the packed out space. As we waited for our last friend to arrive we were attended to by a very friendly waitress who gave us an understanding of the menu and how it all worked. Best way to describe it would be a Tapas restaurant but with Indian food, perfect!!

We shared a few of their small plates to start – Vegetable Samosas, Keema Pau, Vada Pau & Dishoom Calamari. The Keema Pau literally melted in your mouth, it was beautiful!

Then onto the mains where we shared – Masala Prawns, Biryani, Mattar Paneer & the House Black Daal (Dishoom’s signature dish for this particular restaurant). There was the perfect mixture of spice and flavor and was more than enough to share between the four of us.

Next time I am in the area I will without a doubt go back for more! Perhaps I might even check out the funky little bar they have on the bottom level. As we were leaving around 8.30pm there was still a line to get in the door, so get in early or wait in the line because it is worth it!

All of the above are bookable direct from the Favourite Tables Website.

Finally, a recent addition to Mrs. FT’s approved list, The Set restaurant. As part of the Artists Residence in Regency Square and with a great Cocktail bar next door it well worth the stroll.
