What: Foxlow Soho
In a nutshell: Hawksmoor Spinoff comes to Soho
Summing it all up: The people behind Hawksmoor are finally descending on Soho with their spinoff, Foxlow. Expect steak, ribs, chicken and more...
Having only just launched Hawksmoor in Borough, their team are at it again - getting ready to unveil their latest Foxlow in Soho, just off Golden Square.
It's a two-floor affair, with lots of counter seating upstairs around a U-shaped bar and apparently "an illuminated canopy inspired by the cinemas of the 1960s and 70s." Downstairs can fit 40 more - and the open kitchen is down there too.
While the menu remains very much a meaty affair, there's a smattering of vegan options too:
- Slow-smoked pork ribs (these are so, so good)
- Five pepper Brixham squid
- Fried Castlemead chicken and steaks sourced from small British farms
- Those vegan options include "Spice roasted cauliflower with chickpeas & spinach" and "Warm lentils with sweet potato and tahini
And on top of that, there's a daily brunch including their "Fried chicken, egg & croissant waffle" and a Sunday roast of either beef with all the trimmings or the new Chicken pot roast with cider braised turnips, parsnips & heritage carrots (that's it above).
And cocktails are clearly a big thing here too. Expect new drinks like Greenpoint (rye, vermouth, yellow chartreuse) and Shaquiri (Manzanilla, lime, Peychaud’s bitters) as well as Foxlow faves like the Miami Dolphin (strawberry-infused rum, lime, pina colada foam).
