As we were wanting to find some where in London that did a good burger, one of the chef’s at Gordon Ramsay @ Claridge’s told us about one of Gordon Ramsay’s latest offerings in London, Bread Street Kitchen. Located within the recently developed One New Change, a stones throw from St Paul’s Cathedral in The City of London, Bread Street Kitchen is a large modern bistro.
The decor is industrial chic with lots of retro touches. Huge glass windows allow plenty of light in, dotted here and there along the back of the banquettes are op shop find lamps(so cool, some bought back memories of ones Nan had). The space is divided into several ‘rooms’ of banquettes each with there own colour theme. The steel beams and open ceiling are very cool and juxtapose nicely with the classic bistro black and white tile floor.
The menu has a good selection of dishes from the raw bar items, grill, wood fired oven right through to scrumptious puddings. I decided to have a burger while R tried the yellow fin tuna with a salad of green leaves and shaved fennel, with a salsa verde. A glass of Chablis went down well too.
The bar downstairs also does a great trade in coffees and breakfast for the local business people.
After our lunch here we strolled all the way along the Thames back to Westminster then through Green Park back to the hotel. The walk helped burn off the calories and got us ready for dinner. Stay tuned for my report on Relais de Venise l’Entrecote a gem of a restaurant in Marylebone and our lunch at Maze.
