It's not a secret that we have much love for Bob Bob Ricard. It's fair enough to say that much of it comes from a vodka-fuelled dinner very early in the days of Hot Dinners, but repeated visits have always been a joy. So a chance to try their recently revamped Sunday lunch was not to be passed up.
Executive Chef Eric Chavot is in charge (who's also gearing up for Bob Bob Cité) so we popped along to see how the French chef would approach a proper British Sunday lunch. Here's what we had...
Now, we know this is all very meat-and-seafood heavy - but BBR has also added more vegan dishes to the menu.
This includes "Truffled Potato & Mushroom Vareniki" (Russian dumplings), a vegan Waldorf salad and main courses of "Pearl Barley Kasha & Pickled Forest Mushrooms and Tolma a La Tolstoy" which is courgette and round vine tomato stuffed with spiced chickpeas, bulgar wheat and quinoa, served with zhug and tomato coulis. And finish off with "Rum & Raisin Rice Pudding with vintage Panama rum, coconut, caramelised banana and mango sorbet." So there's plenty on offer.
Hot Dinners were invited to Bob Bob Ricard. Prices are correct at the time of writing.
