A couple of weeks ago, I met up with a couple of fabulous bloggers: Sunny in London and Silverspoon London for brunch at Dean Street Townhouse in Soho. It was a long overdue catch-up and as before, the afternoon flew by.
It was my first time here and as soon as I walked in, I liked it straight away. The relaxed atmosphere, the Georgian-styled dining area and their classic bar that oozed another time and place made feel very much at (my imaginary) home.
In such lovely surroundings and having learned that Champagne was served in coupe glasses, I ordered a French 75: Bombay Sapphire, lemon, sugar and of course Champagne. And for starter, I had the duck with girolles on toast. Yum.
Melanie from Sunny in London had the twice-baked smoked haddock soufflé, which I had a taste of and without reservation (and if you like fish of course), I would say order this dish. Sublime. I had food envy throughout the first course.
Angie from Silverspoon London had the home-cured salmon and pickled cucumber, which also looked good.
For my main, I had one of the best salads I’ve had in a long time which included Dorset crab, prawns and fennel. It was both hearty and tasty; very satisfying.
Melanie had the chicken, bacon and avocado which looked equally as scrumptious and filling …
… whilst Angie had the sea bass with clams and fennel, which sounded very good and left me intrigued.
We skipped dessert but I did order some cheeky and delicious chocolate truffles with my coffee.
The whole afternoon ticked all the right boxes: great company, good food and comfortable surroundings. So the next time you’re planning on heading to Soho and are looking for somewhere busy yet chilled that serves good food and drinks, you may want to check out Dean Street Townhouse. I feel quite late to the party with this one but I’m so glad I’ve finally discovered it.
Thanks for booking us in Angie!
