BBR-Press-for-Champagne-4

This weekend I had the pleasure of dining at one of London’s most iconic restaurants Bob Bob Ricard, situated in Soho. Bob Bob Ricard is recognised for numerous things, firstly it’s renowned “press for champagne” button, which sits on the wall of each of their luxurious dining booths. Followed by it’s rich and glamorous interior – complete with all-booth seating, leather banquettes, brass rails, velvet theatrical drapes, mirrored ceilings, vintage cinema chairs and the list goes on…If this isn’t enough to distinctly  remember Bob Bob Ricard by, then the food certainly is. The menu presents a selection of iconic British dishes with a unique twist of Russian flavours. If you thought our home comfort foods couldn’t get better, Bob Bob Ricard serve to prove you wrong.  I went to Bob Bob Ricard to try out a new addition to their menu, a classic Sunday Roast. The Sunday Roast was out of this world, which makes me wonder why their menu wasn’t extended sooner!   From stater, roast to dessert,  Bob Bob Ricard went above and beyond with beautiful presentation and delicious food.

What I had
Starter
To start we shared the lobster, crab & shrimp pelmeni, sea bass ceviche with avocado, venison steak tartare and the crab salad with chill avocado and mayonnaise. The starters were beautifully presented, fresh and demolished in a matter of minutes. My favourite dish was a Russian one, the lobster traditional dumplings.

Roast
Roasties this restaurant is definitely one to join the tick list for you. Bob Bob Ricard’s new addition of the Sunday Roast is served from 12-2.45pm every sunday. The highlight of the roast is the generous amount of beautifully cooked black-angus beef. The roast looks simple yet each of the ingredients on the plate compliment each other from the glazed carrots to the homemade Yorkshire pudding. 

Dessert
Spoilt for choice, we opted to share the desserts. Because sharing is caring right?  We shared the crème brûlée, strawberries and cream soufflé, chocolate fondant and eton mess en perle. The desserts were out of the world, there’s no adjective to describe them. I have had each of these dishes before, yet not one has simply ever tasted this good. Beautifully presented the eton mess and chocolate fondant had hidden treats inside, it was the neatest eaton mess I have ever witnessed!  The crème brûlée is asterixed on the menu as a Russian dish, if so then the Russians make a better one than us! Everything was delicious and I couldn’t recommend this restaurant more.

Highlight
I’m torn everything was wonderful. If I said starters, roast and dessert would it be cheating?
