Name: Boyd’s Bar & Brasserie
Location: 8 Northumberland Avenue, London, WC2N 5BY.
Boyd’s Bar & Brasserie is certainly a welcome throwback to the days of former grandeur. Set in the Northumberland building on the Strand, the hotel-style brasserie is all about marbled walls, crisp white tablecloths, dripping chandeliers, and a mirrored bar. The menu is also impressive, with French and British classics both making appearances; Chelsea monthly tip? Tis the season to be merry… Try the Florence menu!
Enjoy, Blue cheese, pear and walnut coupled with envive salad for starters and dig into a Confit leg of Gressingham duck, wine risotto, pearl onions and mushrooms. Confit Salmon, and crushed potatotes comes with it’s own special secret recipe courtesy of Boyd. For deserts we opted for Christmas pudding, brandy sauce and whiskey cream. The service was excellent, exactly what you would expect from perfect luxury dining.
