Dirty Bones

By day, this restaurant will look for the world to be a basic hot dog kiosk serving up one classic Yankee dog (served with yellow mustard, red ketchup and spring onions). At night a hidden door to the restaurant downstairs is opened, where they'll be serving up an extended hot dog list and also the 'bones' part of the menu (Boston ribeye steak and more) plus what looks to be a great cocktail list.

"...it was the proper hot dogs that stole the show. Three kinds (beef, pork, veggie) were all impeccably sourced and came in five variations, all served in pillowy brioche buns. Our combo of ‘Mexican’ filling (tender pork pibil, fiery salsa and a lick of sour cream) with pork dog (meaty, smoky and juicy, with a proper ‘knack’) was one of the best restaurant hot dogs we’ve had in London.

"A touch of Heston is manifest in a puff of smoke emanating from a jar of grilled and smoked pickles. Smokiness is a quality in another side dish we like, Bourbon beans. I am shamelessly wooed by butter-soaked glazed and charred sweetcorn kernels. Desserts are an icy ice-cream riff on milk and cookies and coffee and doughnut — Heston-lite." READ REVIEW

"Currently a posh cocktail bar that dabbles in dude food, Dirty Bones needs to try harder if that’s not all it wants to be." READ REVIEW
